as seen on aftermarket car magazines, its this metal tube with fins that supposed to produce some sort of turbulance so that when it reaches the intake manifold it mixes better with fuel... cliam to gain 5-20 hp!
WTF! I didnt believe that shit, but a friend of mine says it works really well on their BMWs...and they can actually "feel " the difference...whereas I'd saw Sports Compact car's dyno graph and they actually lost 2hp.

Sounds like a classic example of someone convincing themselves that they gained something just because they spent money. From what I have heard, it is supposed to take 20 hp to be able to feel a difference. I find that extremly hard to believe.
