Anyone ever try The Turbonator?

I see their ads everywhere - including this site. They claim 35 hp for about $70. Anyone ever tried one? What is your experience? Thanks - John

I did. But I was more impressed with the blue air they gave me for my tires. Makes it easier to see slow leaks. J/K! I haven't seen one thread where someone has used one.

Don't know anyone who owns one, don't have one myself, but is has that "as seen on TV" appeal that makes me doubtful. Besides, I'd have a hard time putting a loose piece of metal right before my intake anyhow,

Nah you got it all wrong - you should have went the ABS route for the drive shaft - lighter and springs back into shape - so greater torque potential.

You guys are all wet. These turbonaters are the greatest thing since sliced bread!!! I duct taped my wifes 12 volt hair dryer to the turbonater, leave the heat setting off, and amazing power gains. With that hair dryer on high setting it even sounds like you have a supercharger. Use the black duct tape with the black hair dryer, it looks OEM.

again, you have it all wrong. See, I have the best thing since bread. I have hollow spark plug wires, piston return springs, and an O pipe in the exhaust (beats those fancy X and H pipes). And all this was done by myself with my collection of left handed tools, specially made.
