... turbonator is basically a leaf blower attached to your intake. does it make a difference?

see for yourself before everyone pre-judges. however, the HP increases are not very big, and how long does it last?.. personally, I wouldn't buy one.. but that's just me. If you do buy one for your car, take some dyno tests before & after so we can put this turbonator thing to rest.

I really doubt that a tiny turbonator can push as much air as a leafblower

I guess we'll have to ask one of the hockey player's wives about that... :P

$50 for more HP. That sounds like adding a Vtech sticker to a honda gives you 100+ hp!

Just check the CFM numbers on one of these things and you will see that it doesn't even push 1/10th of the air that a supercharger running ca. 7-8psi does...

Basically if you want to see how much gain one of these does, just take a sock and stick it in your intake... that should give you a right approximation without wasting $50 bucks. ;) Then paypal me the $50 for saving you the hassle... (tj at fieldofwebs.com)
