Hey mate

This has come up once or twice... maybe on FM ver 1 so may not be any threads here on it...

It seems they have changed their ploy. Previously they used to claim the fan actually increased the pressure in the intake manifold.... which is a load of s**t on aything larger than a lawnmower engine. Now they claim it is the vortex of air created which assists the atomisation of fuel..

So yeah - very sus.

We have discussed this on the forums b4, it is a fair bit dodgy. Pfft this is the exact one that i found way back. It does seem like a pretty cool concept thou but i doubt it will even have much gain if at all.

Dont for get when you go to purchase it it will cost you over $100 now :roll:

Just to add, to get to Australia it will cost you roughly $180 :?

Lol, the funny thing is.... they say 'supercharge your car for 70 bucks'... yet their description of what this device does not even fit that of a supercharger?!?!?!

I certainly didnt fork out for a blower to create a vortex in my inlet tubing... :roll:

You can also have more than one too, how many would you have to install just to get a result that claims what they have said. 3,4,5!! :roll: Pfft F**k that. Even if you did get a special deal for buying more than two in the one order its still completely s**t. :D

I would like to see someone actually buy one and then dyno thier car just to see if it is worth it. :wink:

I also lost a full second off my Quarter-mile times; from 16.8 to 15.8 and probably could have done better with more time with the G-Tech."

who could argur with that :roll:

Yeah like im really gonna believe what people over the internet said lol :roll: Show me real results damn it! :P But seriously someone with a spare $180 should buy a couple and then get your car dyno'd, if it doesnt work then you could always send it back. And 'try' to claim you money back garantee. :)
