    Mythbuster did a show on this and other "thingies" that suposedly increase power and fuel effecientcy. All turned out to be BUSTED!

    Save your money.

    What is it supposed to do? If it is one of those electric fans, it's a big pile of steaming bullshit. As far as I'm concerned, anything in the intake, other than a supercharger or turbo, is going to restrict air flow and decrease power.

    bottom line is they are gonna take $75 bucks of your hard earned green and you'll have nothing but a goofy looking paper weight to play with. save your money for something that will make a difference. its basically the same as a throttle body spacer...........big waste of $$$$!!!
