    it looks like it only works when you floor it. also looks like you have to replcae your closed air box with an open one whict i would not use on a truck that does any off roading open air boxxes and high flow air filters just cant protect your truck as well as a closed air box and paper filter can I dont care what they say( they are ok on street trucks seeing as srteet trucks see far less dust and dirt) i also notice that it siad that some cars only get a 15hp boost and that 60 is the high number its is unlikly you will get the max 60 hp boost plus it over heats if you use it longer then 30sec. I would just save my money and get a belt driven super charger or a turbo they cost more but remember you get what you pay for

    No. Promise to never think about this mod again and we'll forget you asked.

    That kind of stuff is all garbage.
