Has anyone tried one of these things? I know it is probably a gimmick, but the theory sounds true enough. One of the things I retained from college is when getting liquid out of a 5 gallon bottle to mix up a large container of adult beverages is that swirling the water in the container you are pouring from until a whirlpool is created inside of the bottle gets the liquid out much quicker. I can picture the same process inside of my air intake. Even if I only get a 2 mpg increase it will pay for itself rather quickly. They even sell it in a kit with a "fuel ionizer" made of rare earth magnets. I realize that magnets aren't going to ionize the hydrocarbons in the fuel, but again...if it even does a little... Anyone tried them?

If these things worked the thread explaining where to buy them and how to install would be the most popular on TT. It's a scam pure and simple.

Dont mess with it. Getting air in quicker (if it actually could)isn't going to help w/ HP's, fuel economy or whatever else it claims to do. Volume of air is the key, and your throttle body dictates volume. TBS's dont work on fuel injected vehicles, so I would'nt mess w/ them either (although they do make a cool "swooshing" sound when on the throttle).

I fall for the Vortex effect of TBS that has a Buttress Thread in it, but i'm not magnetizing my fuel!

Can somebody point me to details of why TB does not work on fuel injected system? I'd like to see the theory on that.

I must have said that a hundred times!

It's painful being a Louisiana Football fan. The Saints have always sucked and the Tigers aren't making me feel good either.
