spoonerdee... just wondering why you'd post a link to the same video, and ask if it's a repost... after responding on a thread a few weeks earlier, right beneath the same link and file.

I remember a long time ago, Car and Driver put one of these on their long term test 540i. They dyno tested it, and found no gains- but no losses either.

The way I see it, the concept of swirling the air works- but it's only effective enough to make up for the restriction it creates.
