***t. You want to have the air go strait in the throttle body. Not whirle around. That kills performance especially in you're case cause you're supercharged.

Wouldn't it be sweet to see an engine blow up? Or a whole car.

May that engine rest in pieces
in my opinion anybody who buys one of these and doesnt do enough research on the subject to understand they are buying a useless piece of metal deserves to have this happen to them...

Well, before you buy the amazing product know as the tornado which spins air into your intake mandifold 40 times faster than stock! I would like to interest you in some magic beans, you see these beans are unlike any other, they give you the ability to not only fly, but see through vault banks and make you up to 20% faster than stock! Also I have a ary of NOS stickers, only leagal in 3 states but they give you up to 15 hp gain!

I say buy it and tell us how it works. Maybe it DOES work. I heard it works on some cars but not cars that suck air into all kinds of twists and turns. I bet it would do ok on a Lambo or something where the intake is straight through rather than twisty and turny.
