If your wallet is too full it will help make it more comfortable to sit.
Other than that it's a waste of time.

I couldn't have put it any better than that.....

P.T. Barnum once said "theres a sucker born every minute...". If these
things were so good, every manufacturer would be installing them on the
assembly line.

Sned them an email and ask how the "swirling effect" created at the
throttlebody manages to continue swirling all the way through the tubes
of the upper intake around curves, past the valves and into the
combustion chamber. They won't reply.

When I see the TV commercials for these devices I just have to laugh.
They promote the "tornado" effect as a good thing. In reality the
"tornado" effect (aka vortex) is actually a sign of inefficient flow.
When I design dam outlet control structures I have to specify where to
put anti-vortex devices into the structure to improve its efficiency
when conveying water. The theories behind these devices are bogus and
I'm surprised the government hasn't hit them with a lawsuit for false
advertising.

Pure snake oil.

From their web site:
35 HP boosts are not typical. Your results with the Turbonator will
probably, but not necessarily, be less.

Golly, wouldn't friction and going around curves (induced secondary flows)
tend to dissipate the initial swirl? ****ing morons!

Actually I did see where the FTC sued one of them some time back.
Made them change their claims.

That's why they never reply. I guess they figure if you're smart
enough to ask that question, you're smart enough to figure out whatever
answer they send will be full of sheep dip...
