Question Turbonator

Hi all.

I have been doing a lot of research on american websites, particularly mustang sites searching for new ideas for my EFXR8. I found the website below. Its interesting.....but seems to be a bit of a scam....

What do you guys think?

Re: Turbonator

hahaha If they think it goes like a car with turbocharger? Then they have NEVER been is a decent turbo car !!....Remember to get air spinning like that it must take some flow/ effert away from its velocity/ speed...Seen 100's of these over the years...Don't believe what you see in mags either..In those same mags these companies advertise too...Remember...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Turbonator

I did try one for a joke when I lived in CQ that a friend had on my EL XR8, and it did make a little difference, mainly to fuel econony, maybe another 30 or so K to a tank, and there was a slight increase in torque at cruising speeds, but nothing spectacular.
