Turbonator's are typically a waste of $$ and a serious risk to engine damage when they start to come apart later in life.

The MAF and then the throttle body both straighten out airflow, so anything it might do will get fixed. And the air going down the intake ports can't swirl from the plenum.

Save your hard earned $, don't waste on something like that. They are just gimicks.

That's what I thought. If it would be that simple, why isn't it incorporated in every car. Plus, why is that simple part so expensive? :hmm: But maybe someone got some experience with it?

Profit margin is phenominal! Cost them $0.50 to $1.00 to make, box and $2.00 each to market, and you sell them with a killer bottom line!

Like Slick 50, another snake oil, does nothing (Feds sued and won) and they still are in business. People are still convinced on the hype.

Like Split Fire plugs. Same deal. I would bet anyone that if you give me 6 alternating dyno runs (3 brand new AC Delco factory spec plugs) vs 3 Split Fires on a dyno, you will see a variation that sits well within the margin of error on the dyno, not enough to warrant the cost of the efforts.
