Default Too good to be True?

Hey everyone,
Looking at my 1st mild mod (if i can call it that)
http://www.vorteccyclone.com/index.html
Take a look and tell me what you think. Looks like it might be more of a sham then something that will actually improve my truck's performance. I thought that it may be a good way to get some more MPG and also get some power =D.

youll need to order more blinker fluid if you install that. it drains it quite fast

Thanks guys for the quick response.
Yeah I figured that it was BS... Kinda sucks b/c I was looking forward to being able to add something to my truck. If anyone has some ideas for me, I am looking for something to increase my MPG and if possible some HP. Lift/tires come when I'm not poor anymore HA!

I don't wanna burst your bubble, but lift and tires are only going to offset any performance mods you make. Haha, it's sad, I know, but it's so true. I say just intake and exhaust to start off.

I need to get my intake now. :/

Tuners are out of my knowledge. If I'm going to spend 300 bucks on something, I better know how to use it, lol.

And PSSHT, you're behind, Alan. I've got a flowmaster now! Where's yours? LOL

dont waste your time or money on the following
1.intake
2.tuner
3.the cyclone
if your going to do anything stick to interal mods like roller rockers porting and polshing and things of that nature. and as for the exhaust its not a bad idea just becareful with it to big a pipe and you will looose power not gain it next do a full new exhasut with header and all
