Has/ is anyone using these and do they really do anything for the engine? I Have heard alot of people say that they really do help, still kinda of a skeptic though.

I think any possible gain from the swirling effect would be negated by the extra restriction you now have in your intake.

Ya I know your not "dissin me". I didn't think they worked in the first place. However this is the Brainstorming section so I figured I would throw something out there to "Brainstorm" with.
