    I am guessing this is hoax/bull****/pure flatulence... sorry, but had a friend tell me about it and thought I would post up since I have actually no experience with it personally.

    He (only being 20, in college and driving a toyota camry) is stressing over his car as usual and is desperate to find more power for no money.

    I told him he might be better off to go buy a leaf blower and attach that to his intake and call it a turbocharger... I think he is considering it.

    buy a bilge pump, same thing, but cheaper. BTW, might be better to hire someone to sit under the hood and exhale into the intake. you'll likely see more gains from that.

    Tell him to start out saving money instead of trying to make a CAMRY fast, it doesnt happen.

    "Twenty and 35 HP boosts are not typical. Your results with the Turbonator will probably, but not necessarily, be less."

    Has anyone in their company even driven a vehicle with an power adder?
