My friends have been tellin me to get the "tornado" but is it really worth it? Does it actually increase fuel economy and horsepower? and if so is it compatiable with my Joe-Z intake?

I suggest you just edit this post, and have it deleted before the flames start

The Tornado is a waste of $$

Gimmick. In theory its a good idea, but the execution is questionable.

^^^ in theory it does work. but throw it on a dyno and you've just wasted what? 100 bucks or so.

I have something similar to a tornado.
I looks almost the same ,It works really good.

The brand is turbonetics.

The only thing I noticed is that the blades
spins.

Also when you shift, it makes that phewshhhhtttt
sound. :)

The bad news is that the tornado is a gimmick. The good news is that now you have a reason to slap your friends.

lol now you just ask for rep.

The Tornado is not worth it. They show those informercials at 4am for a reason.

Why get just one, see if you can fit two that would double the power.
Actually it would quadruple the power. You'd get double the power from the first, then the second one would double that. Four times tha powa!!
