So my friend just got this thing for his intake hose called Tornado.. It seemed to have increased power a tad, and it claims gas mileage goes up 1-2 average.

Does anyone know about these and what about putting one on my lx?

People put on intakes because they are smoother and bigger on the inside with a free er flowing filter on the end. So, with that being said, do you really think that putting a piece of metal in your intake will make more hp? Its all a load of horse poopies and that increase in power is all in your friends head.

something that blocks and restricts airflow=power increase? Listen if this stuff worked all the OEM intakes and even AM would incorporate a design similar

theory is right... product is wrong

:yeahthat: Causing the incoming charge air to swirl causes better atomization of the fuel air mixture. The better atomization of the fuel causes a more even and quicker burn of the air fuel mixture which creates more power. So, in theory, it is right, but the better way to get proper atomization is with port design.
