    Nice april fools joke.

    If it's not, you should probably sell whatever american made car you're driving and go buy some rice and join one of their sites. They all beleive that stickers and huge ass wings add horsepower.

    the tornado works, believe it or not. i got about a 3ish mpg average increase. the only thing i didnt like about it was that it whistled... loudly... i didnt notice any acceleration increase, but more mpg helps the wallet so why not.
