What is it? . . .A device that "spins" the intake air? No way it could do any good. It's too simple and probably inexpensive. Otherwise it would already be on all SSR's (and other vehicles, too). :nodno

Popular Mechanics September issue says it is all HYPE. You will get better fuel mileage if you wash and wax your SSR! :jester

Wingrider,
What are you asking for the bridge ? ? ? If you don't get any reasonable offers put it on E-BAY and you can probably get twice what it's worth ! ! ! ! :jester

Ok Ok

I was just asking. Now I see there is a contention that the device is hardly worth it. Although, 2 - 3 MPG difference isn't anything to write home to Mom about.
Thanks for your input.

2 - 3 more MPG

Hey, 2 - 3 more MPG IS a big deal and you won't have to write home to Mom about it. You can now afford to drive to see her. Question is what is the cost to improve mileage that much. RSSRToy, How much was your Tornado?

I bought a simalar gadget and tried it on my bmw last year, it caused my oxygen sensor to go crazy and i had to send it to the dealer to get it fixed. Is it worth the extra mile or the extra hp?
