    I think I'll get two. One for the intake, and one for the exhaust. If I take a hammer and stuff it in the tailpipe, it should swirl the air more efficiently and make more power.
    Wow, I'd have 80 more horsepower!

    I like how he couldn't spell "Charger" in the title.... makes me always feel confident in a seller when they can't even spell right... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Typical range of improvement over baseline is: up to 40 increase in horsepower.
    up to 31.85% increase in fuel economy.

    Sure. Heck.. he could say up to 400 hp increase and 300% gain in mpg. As long as he has the "up to" he's covered.

    Sounds to me like the Tornado you see advertised late nights on those infomercials.

    A friend of mine who used to own an old school maxima told me about some home-made mod him and his dad did like that... he didn't buy any product but he explained the swirling of the air when its taken in by the engine and its supposed to help performance... maybe not 40hp but he said you can feel the difference but its not HUGE or anything.
