Default steel does the turbonator work

im refering to those little 50 to 70 dollar turbine you stick in your intake hose to increase mielage and horsepower, anyone got feedback o ntaht , that has tried it really on ne car or your mustng, if it helps or if it just restricts air flow even more, or if it doesn absolutely nothing?

Default RE: steel does the turbonator work

lets put it this way, when I worked at napa a while back when they first came out the rep gave them to the counter people. I ran one in my 1997 f-150 4.6 and when the rep came back a month later, I boxed it up and gave it back to him

Think of it like this:

even if it did "spiral" the air in the intake, as soon as it hits the throttle body... any swirl would stop becuase its a flat plate. just my .02
