its an insert that goes in the inlet air ducting, it directs the airflow into a spiral flow pattern

http://www.hiclone.com.au/

for my EF i have serious doubts it can work specially with injection, where it is in the ducting is just before the throttle body, and there's plenty of changes in direction before it gets into the combustion chamber

it's $180 but it does have a 30 day money back guarantee

they are a waste of money! didnt make any difference to my car. the only way i recon they are going to work is on carby cars and maybe some cars with with air flow sensors not MAP sensors. owning a hiclone i certainly dont recomend wasting your money. didnt make any difference to my EF or my mates MK petrol Triton.

I've got one. It came with a mandrel-bent intake. I looked at this cheap piece of fabricate sheet metal and flung it somewhere in my garage. $160.00 - crap. Hope I can find it again. I shall take it to work and show some of the our engineers. Should be good for a laugh over the mornings cuppa.

PS: On examination, I can see the only application on a BBM would be from the air filter (through the intake tubing - to facilitate air flow through a uniform diametre tube). Most of the effect would be nulified once passing through the throttle butterfly.
