100% Truth.
It seems to me that with some companies the more ridiculous the product is the more profit they make off it.

Remember how popular those stupid "turbonators" or "intake tornados" were when they 1st hit the market?

I'm beyond sure the guy that came up with that **** is a millionaire now. I mean every other retard around here, whether it was a stock family sedan or riced out honda civic, was rocking one.

I figure airplane turbo prop engines are tuned for high steady-state EGTs.

I just remember reading a thread or three only about how low the EGTs are. The only reason I could personally see a benefit of even measuring EGTs to make sure that they're even. If one cylinder was oddly higher than the other, that could tell me it's detonating. Otherwise I'd rather see low IATs....

I love Jacob's wheel reference:

"That would be like suggesting 15x6 wheels to someone in the 15x10 6UL thread."

MATG is coming up, I suspect the usual m.netters will be out there. I'm going to get their take on this shins, see if they would actually buy the FFS over the REAL gold standard.... FMII

local kid put one on his 02 wrx and claimed it improved his spool time because it "pre-spun the air for the turbo"

Hmm, A snake bit attached to an electric motor with a ratcheting end that lets the compressor spin faster, but not slower. It sounds like garbage I could sell to these guys.

no electric motor. Just a metal spiral you stick into your intake tube.
I heard FFS is going to patent it next to be used in peoples anuses. Official product unveiling at the next SEMA. Expect a solid 10 SSI (***** per square inch) gain with OEM reliability.

I give it 12 months max before Coors Light adds a third indicator bar that reads, "ABSOLUTE ZERO."

Yes, by blowing up more of our cars, there will be less old cars on the road. Tom is a secret gvt agent selling bullshit to **** up our cars so that they can outlaw anything made pre obd2.

I like Natty Light and Miller Lite as much as the next guy but it has to be ICE COLD! None of that Coors Light bullshit, it tastes like cereal.

Someone should totally buy one of that retards complete kits and and pay for him to "tune" it. Dyno the flying **** out of the car on every dyno shop known to man for a "baseline" whp/wtq number. Rip off the christmas tree "fuel and spark management" ****, shoot it with a rifle. Install a $300.00 V2.2 megasquirt and $199.00 LC1 wbo2, tune with Megatune/MLV. Return to every dyno shop known to man and get more more results with at least 20% higher numbers.

Rip off all his supercharger garbage and sell for nearly what it cost to buy and buy a FM2 kit.

Make 20% higher numbers than MS/Coldside
???
Profit.


Then proceed to hardcore troll the **** out of every site who's ever heard of FFS.




Wish I had like 20k in disposable income. I'd do it.
