i was on ebay the other day and i saw this tornado intake fan which say that it will help bring more cold air in faster and will make my car gain up to 30hp more, just wondering if it really works???

In favour of the other answers, no. Think of it - how can a little plastic fan, that turns only by the power the air your engine sucks past it, increase power? It will decrease air flow because it's a blockage. Same goes with electric superchargers/turbos etc. They have nowhere near the power to pump enough air into the engine to give even give slightly positive pressure.

come on guys i know we are sick of this question as it is a ridiculous one to us in the know but we want to keep new members and hopefully teach em some stuff so play nice.

welcome mate. but seriously a simple google search on the effectiveness on these useless items would have answered your question. not meaning to be rude but this question just does not seem to go away no matter how many times its answered. dont take it to heart mate.

Chris.

sure they work.. but only in conjunction with a 30 dollar ebay resistor on your oxygen sensor.

Working together, you'll be able to do 4 wheel burnouts in third gear!

hey mate. Word to the wise; the internet is diametrically opposed to quality control. live by this mantra

Welcome to the site & if there's any specific mechanical questions you have, this site is the best bar none. However, never take anything here too seriously or to heart. we're all fairly loose here :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
