PERFORMANCE BOOSTER
  • Designed to burn fuel cleaner, faster and more completely for greater power and fuel economy
  • Increase gas mileage 7% to 24%, gain a 4- to 13-HP increase!
  • Stainless steel booster installs easily inside the air intake hose of electronically fuel-injected vehicles
  • Creates a swirling motion forcing air around corners and bends and through intakes
Since air is the main component in the combustion process, this mini whirlwind results in the best fuel atomization possible. Tests prove it! The Tornado® increases gas mileage from 7% to 24% (figures confirmed by road tests performed by an emission lab licensed by EPA/CARB). Dyno testing shows a big boost in horsepower-4-HP to 13-HP gain. Maintenance free-no moving parts to wear out. Manufacturer's lifetime warranty.

To order proper size:

For Carburetor/EFI Type: (1) remove air inlet hose located between throttle body and air filter box; (2) measure inside diameter (ID) of hose; match measurement with corresponding ID given.

For Carburetor/TBI Type: (1) lift top off to expose the air filter element; (2) line up a straight edge along top of air cleaner element at center and measure height at point "A", 3-1/2" from center stud. "A" is distance from air cleaner base to bottom of straight edge.

NOTE: Most 1987-1997 Ford cars, trucks and vans with 4.9L, 5.0L, 5.8L and 7.5L engines have 2 air intake hoses; therefore, 2 Tornado® boosters are required for these applications only.

"I bought this 3 yrs ago. Installed it in my 1985 GMC w/350 cu in w/4 bbl. Motor is "old school", no computer, EGR, etc...strictly old school, everything involving the computer has been removed. Transmission is a 700R4 automatic.. Before I installed the Tornado, truck averaged 9-11 mpg, since the instillation, I now average 9-11 mpg. I was really hoping for some kind of increase. This 9-11 mpg is killing me at the gas pump. Other than impressing the teenage boys in my neighborhood that see it, I am not impressed, I'm mid 50"s and live in north Florida."
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: Looks cool

"I have a 2012 Ram 1500 with the Hemi. I bought the K&N cold air intake and the Tornado. As soon as I intalled the intake and the Tornado, my truck just didnt want to run right. Also the gas mileage decreased about 1.5MPG. I decided one day to take the Tornado out and the truck runs sooooooo much better than with the tornado in it. By taking it out, it fixed the hesitation issue with the truck. If you want to spend $70 to make your truck run worse....then this is the product for you."
Pros: None
Cons: Cost too much and doesn't work

"I have this product in a 94 Z28 LT1 and my 97 Dakota 318.
This product is way to expensive for it's gain. I bet most people that added this also added a K&N air filter and that was the increase gain. For $69 you can upgrade your ECU module from G-force.
I added tornado product last and noticed no gains...
The same increase can be reached by opening up your vehicles intake. No tricks. 10% increase. Rip out the mass air flow filter. Not needed. Been running truck for 10 years and no problems. Car also. Why do you need a mesh filter after the air filter,, not needed. My camaro gets 30+ mpgs rated at 21. Go figure that one. Truck gets 18-21,, rated at 14 mpg.
Both vehicles have jet chip pcm upgrades, i think the g-force will work just as well. Ram air and exhaust. No motor mods.
Let more air in and more air out and bang more power. Gee I wonder why no one ever mentions that simple little trick.
VW jetta drive now,, ripped out the cold air inlet so it stops letting warm air from the engine and a g-force ecu upgrade. It went from a decent 31 mpg to 37-38 mpg. (2.5 L gas)
Now you can all send me $50 for my 2 cents worth :0)
"
Pros: i think it works :0)
Cons: to much buck for the bang

"Ive seen an used this Product in multiple vehiles. From a 2005 chevy avalanche, 2007 chevy tahoe, 1995 ford taurus. with each vehicle an tornado (as there not interchangeable between various vehicles due to intake size differences). All cars Ive seen an used this on Ive noticed atleast a 5-10MPG addition. Im sure some will an have had problems with this.
But you have to take everything into account, as adding one thing cant improve your vehicles performance if theres other thing Impeading performance.
"
Pros: Easy to instal an remove
Cons: none that ive seen
