    Oddly enough, no one has ever dynoed a car with one. I am surprised GMHTP hasnt done a mythbusting article on something like the tornado, mafs, hand held tuners, etc.

    Damn, that would be a good article too. One mod at a time, no stacking.

    yea they are total shit! If anything you will loose power because it puts more restriction in your incoming airflow.
