well you hear a lot of "good reviews" when you talk to people selling them. truth is that they CAN make a VERY small gain on a small engine. you also only ever see dyno's showing gains on the factory website. i've never seen good gains posted from them. its basically a 12v hairdryer stuck to a bit of intake tube. obviously it cant cope with the flow of a decent sized engine. most of the time they work to a point then, because they cant flow enough, they actually restrict the intake. they would be a good idea if they had an unlimited 240v supply and some proper power but the ones on sale are a gimmick.

I've got three of these bolted onto my car and the tri-turdo effect really aids performance

The loss in power has been offset by the loss of weight in my wallet, so the car feels more responsive...

how much are they these days anyway? a pair of re-profiled cams from kent/piper is only about £150 for the XE. i bet they're not all that much less?

if it only cost £20 to increase power by 35bhp, why aren't manufacturers providing it as standard?
