I'm glad I read this thread BEFORE I saw the infomercial. I'm a sucker for those things.

Anybody want some Coral Calcium and a REVO styler?

It may have some significant benefit on older 2-valve-per-cylinder engines which have poor "swirl" designed into their combustion chamber.

But nowadays so much Engineering goes into modeling airflow that installing a tornado will have no benefit, or more likely a negative effect from being an airflow restriction or countering the Engineered airflow design.
