gosh. does it come with stickers? I think all the HP and MPG gains are doubled for each sticker that comes with it... and, if you can buy extras, so much the better!

I have two of those on my truck....one right after the other. It's just as good as a twin turbo set-up.

I got 150% faster drying of my hair with that than I did with the blow dryer alone.

It really works.

Least you still have hair!

I put 4 of those on my wheels and it gave me an air-suspension setup! Rides like a dream and I get 500mpg, no road resistence!

Absolutely useless unless you first change your muffler bearings. The extra HP can cause you to throw a pipe if you don't.

Saw one of those in a bathroom hand-dryer once. Barely even ad to put your hands under it. Gave me the idea to put on in my A/C.

That's useless without stickers. A few sticker on the rear window and a few on the door will definatly add HP.

Only 1 or 2. I run one for every cylinder in my 4.0L, with a custom intake of course feed from my roof scoop, fender scoops, hood scoop and 2 from behind the headlights.

You can never have to much cold air.
