Default Turbonator?

Anyone seen one of these in action? Or have an opinion as to whether they might work?

Maybe it's just the cheap bastard in me, but I can't help being curious.
The last time I bought something that seemed to good to be true (a DTPC), it was just a
waste of time and money. Still, I can't help but wonder. Any thoughts?

umm think .. power is gained by removing restriction from the intake and exhaust systems.... do you really think putting something.. anything in the intake you will see more power? its a big fat NO

these will not give you any power... it will kill power. and if for some reason if breaks the pieces will get sucked into the enigne and mess it up big time.

Might as well stick a log into your intake. [sm=badidea.gif]

Definately avoid the turbonator and the ebay "gas saver" jobs.

If you want more power you can always hook up a leaf blower!!!

It's a little more expensive if you run an 04 Monte SS. I priced it out at $5075. No thanks... 3.0" pulley setup with cam for me.
