Sort answer:They dont work.

Long Answer: Basically they are nothing but an adapted exhaust fan that you could buy at any electronics store that is placed in your intake tract and hooked to your battery to provide nothing more than a soft breeze into your intake. A soft breeze that is already overpowered by the vaccum created by your pistons. The theory itself is decent; however to create the about of boost made by a turbo you need something much stronger that would seriously drain your electrical system. There are a few versions that do create some "boost" however few and far between, and those, as stated above put some serious pull on your charging system, and can only be used for very short periods of time. Best bet if you want a quick burst of power for the same amount of time you get from these is to spend the money on a nitrous system. You would get a much bigger shot of power from it anyway. Thats my two cents.

like stated.. its does give a nice cool breeze to yout throttle body. .. Like its on vacation on the islands or something..

well it does work.. It makes your wallet 4 oz lighter.. that is how it works..

put one of those and a Tornado in your intake and be ready to be 100 hp stronger..

Remember too, if you paste stickers on your vehicle of items you dont have, that adds 50 horsepower per sticker! You could have a 1000 horsepower beast in no time!

Psh; If that were true I'd cover the inside of my door panels with stickers.
