In the southern hemisphere water goes down the plug hole in a anti clockwise direction and in a clockwise direction in the northern hemisphere.
does this hold true for air flow?
Is air flow the same as fluid flow? :roll:
Do they make right and left hand versions for southern and northern hemispheres? or have you got to put them in upside down? :lol:
I bet they flow pretty s**t.

Same as a hiclone. Dyno test have been conducted in a dunnydore mag & they did give about 2 RWK but what if it falls apart & gets sucked into your engine!! I am too scared to put one in to get sucked into the TB. OVERATED anyway

heyo,

i heard they need to be the the exact right spot in you cars intake otherwise they just add extra resistance to you air flow.

suposedly it spins the air which allows it to travel faster (?).

certainly not a turbo or supercharger, thats for sure.

and finally, if it was any good then Ford (and any other car company) would have used it rather then stuffing around with VCT or dual length intake runners.

cya
Rene.
