Have you guys heard or seen that thing called tornado. it goes in your air intake tube and is supposed to spin the air going in to help it burn cleaner and all this good stuff but i dont see that it would help on FI cars maybe on a TBI motor if it was after the injectors. what do you guys think?

I agree.

Some people stand by it, but it'* just a restriction that does absolutely nothing. The percieved benefits are merely psychological.

My reasoning is, for all the years that it'* been around...if it works so well, wouldn't the automakers have put them in their cars by now?
