Anyone Heard Something called "Turbonator"

Alright so I see this add on TCC for this thing called the Turbonator..... it claims a maximum of 35hp gains and 31% increased fuel efficiency. The site is www.turbonator.com My question is ... has anyone used this? I highly doubt it works, but why would TCC have this as advertising on their site if its not a legit product? Maybe an admin can fill me in on it a bit more or something

those ads are from google and not from our site, it generates ads and links based on what the page name is, info in the threads, etc...

so it's not from tcc it's from google, and i also highly doubt that it works

Excellent news, I put my trust back into you guys again I figured there wasn't much control over those ads if that was there. I did some research.... so far I see people saying they gain 3-4 mpg, but oddly after reading through a few threads it seems like the same guy is posting in all of them! Probably a company employee... In any case if there is someone on here that has used it, please let us know

If it worked that good and was that cheap wouldn't it be OEM?...exactly. There is no miracle power adder. You spend your hard earned money on Mod's that give you minimal gain's. Or you spend big money and swap or F.I for better gain's. If some $40 part actually gave you that much power EVERYBODY would have one..........lol. Don't waste your time. Get some bolt on's if you want more power.

Bolt on's do give you power. Like an Intake is Raising your Volumetric effeciency. Bigger Diameter pipe with less bend's will help the Airflow. Question is How MUCH power were talking. Usually intake's will only give you 1-4 hp. Do YOU think its worth it? I do. Bolt-on's DO make power. But not much. And a cobination of Bolt-on's will net bigger gain's. You are right about that. But its cheaper to buy them one at a time. Why not install them yourself one at a time as well?...Doesn't hurt.
