You've found a perpetual motion machine... if this thing actually did what the ad says. Unfortunately, it kinda defies the laws of physics.

Either the incoming air is imparting energy onto the propeller (as is the case with this thing, with Tornados, SpiralMaxes, etc.)...

...or the propeller is imparting energy onto the air (as is the case with genuine turbo- and superchargers).

It's one way or the other, not both.

The thing to keep in mind, then... if it's the top case (air imparting energy onto the propeller), where did the air get its energy? Through the engine, of course, using some fractional amount of its output to draw air in and spin a propeller. So rather than boosting output, you're depleting it (by a very very small amount). You might as well stick a little kids pinwheel out the window of your car and expect that it'll *pull* the car forward like a propeller because the passing air blows it. And once again, another ad that claims it helps "atomize fuel better". Gah!!!

Another fine example of scam artists using pseudo-techno-garble. Save your money, please.

If you want a supercharger, then buy a supercharger, above post, I ccouldnt have said it better, the thing is junk and trying to scam folks for the knowledge they don't have.

Junk

With every manufacturer from Ford to Kia trying to increase mileage & performance you can bet your last dime if this thing worked someone in this group would have bought the patent rights to it by now. Enjoy your car & protect your warranty and never drive it like you stole it. Sgt Tip ;)

HA, it's JDM so it must be good...right? :D

Anyone else see the misspelled mess in the 'ad'

The best is that it 'acceslerates' the air flow.:lol:
