Call me a sceptic, but this 'Tornado' looks just like a piece of a squrrel
cage type fan. I personally would think that installing a piece of plastice
that :

#1 ) Has to be driven by the suction of the motor would cause a drop in
quantity of air reaching the manifold and

        #2 ) With this piece of plasic jammed into a small intake hose would
cause an immediate loss in air to the manifold

I'm going to have to call this one a snake oil type of performance add on.
Anyone else have an opinion on this thingy ? Check out the Cartoon type web
site first & look at the Techie section.
