fuel save/horsepower gain ???

Postby k900 » Thu Jan 14, 2010 7:49 pm

has anyone used a Econo-Maxx Vortex Generator.
they're on e-bay.
was wondering what's the story with them?
it says you can save fuel by up to 31% and a gain of up to 35 horsepower???

out of curiosity,i read the whole ad and it comes as a flat piece of metal that u have to bend into the right shape. i think i'll make my own one out of better metal and i'll put more bends in it so i'll have way more power. eat my dust everyone :lol: :lol: :lol:
