"I am very pleased with The Turbonator. It only took a few minutes to install and the performance of my Chevrolet Caprice increased 10-15%. I have also noticed my car goes about 50 to 70 more miles per tank! Thank you Turbonator.com"

I've been trying to convince this one guy from DELAWARE who feels he is "southern" that leaving his tailgate down improves his fuel economy. No matter how much scientific evidence proving otherwise, he is convinced it helps his fuel economy. Sad.

Can I use more than one in my vehicle?

Yes, in Fuel Injection/E.F.I. vehicles, up to three Turbonator's have been installed by automotive enthusiasts that race their vehicles.

"I purchased two Turbonators for my Chrysler Sebring and immediately noticed the increase in power. It was more than I expected. I am already noticing the improved gas mileage. I like them so much, I am ordering two more for my brothers. Now, it feels like my car has a turbo charger." - Dr. Brian Coyle (San Jose, CA)
Now, it feels like my car has a turbo Charger!

I tried the tornado in my focus. I didn't see anything noticeable in MPG or HP. If it did anything it was in fractions. Shortly after that I started selling my horsepower stickers. Everyone one of my horsepower stickers you put on your car will add 600 horsepower. I am working on a new 800 horsepower version.


I don't garrentee anything related to my stickers. and do not offer any type of money back, returns or exchanges.


j/k

I got some for free off a buddy of mine for my 86 Tbird. I didnt notice any power difference, maybe a little better MPG, but at most it woulda been like 1-2mpg.
