Turbinators work best when installed in pairs - in tandem. Can't have enough turbulence in the old intake, doncha know!!

Don't rule our your leaf blower--might be a cheap rig up for forced induction. If you already have one it is cheaper than buying a turbonator.

Don't forget about stickers & graphics either. The ricers claim big HP increases from this alone.

FYI---I'm an old fart and haven't tried either of these ideas yet and do not speak from personal experience. Please post up your results after your testing.


Also, you need to add the model / year of your caddy to your sig/avatar/post so everyone will know what advice to give you. Good luck!

Don't waste your money on that POS. There is no way that will work as advertised. The Turbonator is what I mean.

We tried one on a civic at school once. Dyno showed a loss of around 3hp if I recall correctly. You'd be better off putting helium in your tires as weight reduction, than using that thing.

Nobody really make a CAI for your car. The gains aren't worth the money either.

You might want to do some searching on this site and many others along with Snopes.com on what a turbinator will do for your car. Complete and total waste of money....but, it's your money so go get one if you want to.

Don't put a "cold air intake" on your DeVille! What Cadillac designed from the factory already is a "cold air intake", meaning it pulls air from the coldest point available -- from up behind the driver side headlight area. Any "cone filter" you put on there advertised as a "cold air intake" is only going to pull hot underhood air and serve to decrease performance. If you want to do ANYTHING, just put a K&N panel filter in place of the stock paper filter, but I wouldn't even do that. Paper air filters work the best at what an air filter is supposed to do...filter. Skip the Pep Boys junk (Turbonator, K&N, etc).
