This thing is a peice of crap. all it does is mess up the maf reading. the maf screen staightens out the air for that maf sensor to read. now think of how bad that would mess it up.

Thats actually a pretty cool idea. Kind of like a cheap turbo. If it works, more power to him
I think we have looked at this before, our engines are so big it would take quite a fan to do anything.

our engines pull in a GALLON of air every 2 RPMs if that gives you any kind of perspective (3.8L=1gal)
