NO

If it really worked manufactures would install similar devices from the factory

well if you got 10 hp from spark plugs you might get some gains from increasing resistance in your air intake...

Fart can muffler tip also will increase your HP by 9-10.5
If you add a roof spoiler you can probably add another 4.3HP

But how much Ben? I'm thinking another 15-65% for easy commuting. A 4X8 piece of 3/4 inch plywood mounted with strong bolts to the front (which way..maybe wouldn't matter) would totally relieve wind resistance behind everything behind it!!! Probably another thing 'they' didn't want us to think of.

Not trying to sound like a smart ass but I thought everyone knew that those things did not work. It is one of those things that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

No, it does not work, my 07 STX would even run right and the "Tornado" had to be modified to install it, furtunetly I was able to put it back the way it came and I got my money back - I belive the MAP sensors are not calibrated to accept the change in airflow. Try K&N air filter kit, I also have headers and dual exhaust WOW these mod really work great - It feels like a small V8 lots of torque and RPM increased - also great fuel economy (19 to 21 mpg. Reg. Gas) as long as I do not "put the pedal to the metal" too often!! (before the Mod I was lucky to get 14-15 mpg.)

Exactly. Ever see ads/commercials for pills you put in the gas tank?..supposedly giving remarkable mileage increases. I have a Superchips programmer...makes a difference...but only slight...it can do a lot of other usefull things though like adjust the speedo for different diameter tires,etc. Some programmers claim ridicules increases in power and mileage..like a 65% increase for both!!! I wonder if the Tornado things may change the intake sound a bit? If so that could make many think they have more power..just like a Ricer Rap Muffler.
