Easy 8 minute install
Installs in your intake tube right after the air filter
Great for any vehicle, car, truck, suv, rv, industrial equipment, ect
Comes with installation instructions, most cases you will only need a screwdriver, sometimes you wont even need that!!!
These are shipped flat and you do have to bend them which can be done with your hands
Will work with stock or aftermarket intakes
Up to a 35hp increase
Will pay for itself within 2 days :)
This is transferable between cars and comes with a lifetime warranty
Guaranteed to outlast your car


I'm in!!! I'll buy a dozen! 12 x 35 = 420 horsepower!!! WOOO!!!

-Helps Transmission shift firmer in automatic vehicles
Wow you install one in your transmission too?

Some one a while back emailed them and asked how he could make one from a beer can, and they responded with something humorous but I dont remember.

Its the same thing as greasing your muffler bearings... both of them help give some good gas mileage while increasing power. Getting the triple ball muffler bearings are the best by far though hands down!

X2. I was nieve enough to get one of those "Tornado" thingies for my intake tube thinking it would improve gas mileage like it says it does on TV, couldnt tell a difference in power or fuel consumption. Waste of money imo.

My favorite part.....
"These are shipped flat and you do have to bend them which can be done with your hands"

Save gas, learn to walk.....

Agreed! But make sure you get genuine Timken muffler bearings. The cheap imported triple ball bearings coming in are junk. Mine went the first time I offroaded the truck -- they're not sealed very well.

And DO NOT forget to use high temperature grease on them! Having your muffler seize up at highway speeds is not a happy experience.

I have found the best way to save gas is before every trip, I check my tire pressure, blinker fluid level, and I only run the highest grade halogen headlight fluid! Oh, and I use a "fuel ionizer" magnet on my feed line.
I have spent so much money making my truck more eficient, that now I can't afford to gas it up and see if it worked! :(

Ohh golly, that happened to me heading down I-5 South coming home from the military base up at Ft. Lewis.. I was driving and suddenly it got awful quiet in teh cab, and I heard this huge bang after a second and saw my bearings spitting out my muffler all over the road. Thank god no one was behind me, I could have killed someone! Its because I used some standard RTV Sealant for my grease, and didn't think it would seize it up so dang bad.. stupid me, I should have gone with actual grease.. oh well, such a newbie I am!

I did the exact same thing. 3 tanks of gas after I put it in, I had the plyers out ripping it out of my intake all the while my dad is laughing at me. Haha... definitely learned my lesson.

Bend it yourself! Ahahahaha, c'mon, thats probably a lophole for a lawsuit against them.

That right there should be a warning to people, you wanna save gas, tire pressure and clean filters and a light foot is the best and ONLY way.

In order to properly bend and install this thing, you need the right tools. Perhaps this will work... the KaleCo Johnson Rod..

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...products_id=18

product description:
You spoke, we listened! The long anticipated Johnson Rod has finally made an appearance! Bursting from our engineering bay, and three years in the making, this is most spectacular rod on the market. Not only is the Johnson Rod fully extendable, but it is also .5" greater in girth than any competitor's Johnson Rod. Please install Johnson Rod between 70-90f, as cold weather will cause it to contract.

I wonder if the blinker fluid will work in my truck since I lost all of its smoke?
Their Johnson Rod looks like it is the best. And Brass *****, cripes! I've needed them for years!
Kaleco, the check's in the mail, honest.

These sound like birds in your exhaust tips................I bought them for a joke for a buddy and after he figured it out I put them on mine just to tick some people off. It's just a dog whistle with a funnel on it.
