Guys.. this is PURE MONKEY PISS..
come on mannn.. thas a bloody fan attached to the intake!!!
If a piece of plastic cud increase the output by 35HP(!!!!!!!!) do they think we mechanical enggineers are sittin on out asses and dreaming up of CRAP??

guys really sorry for the use of foul language.. but really.. this thing is an embaressment to all engineers arnouf the world. Not to mention to ALL the people who know anything abt cars at all. which by extension means all members of this site.

This is an insult man really.. do they even think abt all the ppl who spend years under test rigs to develop proper chargers???
Supercharge any car and take five minutes to fit!!
Good god! some one save the world.

Thumbs up Partially Real

Hey Guys ,

I know someone who has bought an identical product from the US and fitted it to a modified Ikon1.6. It did make a minor difference at high RPM's. You could say the same diff a Free Flow Exhaust would make to a car.

The power gains claimed are for The big V6's and V8's which is the catch.

Cheers

@vulken auto... heh heh.. mankey piss is probably somethin similar to Mountain dew.. loll ol..

Dew does look an aweful lot like piss.. ok ok sorry OT..

guys even on a V8.. there is NO way that thing can increase the power by 35HP and increase fuel eco by 31%..
I wonder how these escape from being Sued.. especially in america..
they probably got some loopholes..
