Default Intake mod that increases horsepower AND mpg!

The AirRazor can give your car up to 20% more horsepower, as well as increase fuel efficiency by up to 35%.

Sure does look like something else on the market. Some people swear by them and a lot of others swear at them. I know they dont work for my turbo motor!

I can't believe people would fall for this.

This product does actually work. It's just creats a circular vortex for better airflow. A better distribution of air flow with the injectors will give you more coverage. It's just like the "poweraid" and the "tornado" device that fits before the trotle body and behind your air intake sensor. And YES, it will NOT work on a TURBO or SUPERCHARGED engine. That's because you already have forced induction. Duh! I had one of these on my PT but had to remove it after I had my J.R. supercharger installed.

Wow, so this flimsy little piece of garbage actually creates a vortex of incoming air that accelerates around the bend of the PT intake and gives you 30 more horsepower and increases your mileage to 32 miles (+/-) per gallon? And it does all that while placing a restriction to said incoming air in your intake path? Wow! Man, I'd love to see an INDEPENDANT dyno plot of this little miracle device! Just make sure you order the correct part number. From what I read on Internet thingy, it only increses HP if the air spins counterclockwise, and you'll lose power if it spins clockwise. Of course, that rule doesn't apply in Australia, as the flow must be opposite down there!

Well I'm sure that the HP is greatly exagerated by this product, but the device that I had installed in my PT was the one made by "Tornado'". And it did not claim the outrageous numbers that this other device is claiming. However, the design is basicaly THE SAME. The one designed by Tornado has been recognized by Motor Trend and has Dyno results to prove it. Here is there web site if you don't believe me.

The increase is very minor, more like 3-5%. But every little bit helps.

You have to disconect your battery and let your computer re-map the air-to-fuel ratio. Also if it's installed backwards it WON'T work properly.

Not that I don't believe you, but you direct me to the website of the manufacturer, for dyno tests! Has anyone come up with an INDEPENDANT dyno test of these things that prove they work any better ****ting in my airbox?!?!

Yea...I put on a bunch of gas savings devices and it saved so much gas that I had to drain two gallons from the tank every night so it would not spill out..........A sucker born every minute.....
