Waste $60 and throw away the product, but keep the box in your car. When someone asks you what turbo you have, or if the car is turbocharged, just whip out that box and proclaim you've got the Turbo Fuel saver!! **** works, son!

When people see the intercooler and ask if the car is boosted..i tell them yes, usually the next question "is it turbo or supercharged?"...sometimes i'll answer with "superturbowhipplenitrouscharger type 1"...or i'll say I have a simply DIY eBay kit running 5psi

What turbo is that? Tell em it's a Garrett housing but it's been gutted for better spool. Better yet, it's the new F-1 unit Toyota's using. (GTP works too)

just tell people it is a garrett gt2554r, characteristics include quick spool up good for low and mid range power can be compared to a supercharger feel because of how good the response is. Alot of the 90-93 owners use this turbo because of there lower displacement engine. All in all this is a good turbo and runs out of head room around 210 to 240 hp.
