    Ive never seen anybody gain power from them. There is a lot more mods that will give you more power for the same price. Have you looked at getting the throttle body ported and polished?

    Get a Tornado or a Turbonator instead.

    That's messed up.


    OP: Just port and polish the TB. It's pretty easy to do, I just did mine a few days ago. No noticable difference, but at least I know I did it and it couldn't hurt. I imagine that maybe with more stuff done to my car it might make a slight hp difference (like 1 or 2 maybe) but either way.. it's free. Save your money that way.

    TB spacer = House of Lies! Not worth the time IMO.

    I tried one of these on my TPI Corvette and lost 3 rwhp (which might be explained by simple variance from pull to pull, however it was a far cry from the nice gain that is advertised).

    you know i havent checked out the turbonator site in a while. I think they got a new model. This one add 55hp, and 33% fuel savings!!! Also apparantly hot girls all get the turbonator for their car. You can tell by the picture in the "what is the turbonator" section. Hurry up though guys their on sale for 50% off. Now you can buy 2 for the price of one! doesnt everyone want a twin-turbonated ls1?!
