Hmm, i read a long time ago on G-E that (yes its been proven for no HP gains) but the increased power you are feeling is because the throttle cable was getting streched out, so it was tighter....(like the throttle cable mod)....Im not 100 % sure becuase this was a while ago.

Well I have tried it and got no gas milage change just the annoying hiss. The throttle cables are repositioned so they are not streched. But that is my thoughts on it.

the way its supposed to work is to confuse the tb or pc, into thinking it has more air in there that it does...thus, more power....

can anyone post a sound link to this whistle?
