Their claims state that a swirl vortice improves inlet charge. A perfectly reasonable claim for a carbuerated mill, but nothing in front of the T/B will have any impact at the port, where the injecters are.

Your preaching to the quire for most of us but a few haven't gotten the word yet and another few swear they get better gas mileage.

The sad thing is that otherwise reputable companies put their name on these worthless things.

Airaid, for example, make cold air intakes for PTs and market them as an improvement over stock.

They also claim that their Poweraid Throttle Body Spacers will improve hp and mpg.


How can we trust anything they say?

  1. Show me the dyno
  1. Perform the EPA fuel economy test per the procedure (see link)

How Vehicles Are Tested

Then I'll believe it.
