Default Thoughts about "truckonator" or the "tornado" intake fans
I've read mixed reviews about these air intake add ons and not to sure if anyone has used one or not. I'm not really sold on them just yet. I've seen one video and it's shows the dyno and there was no gain but it was in a small car so idk what to think. If anyone has a clue about them just let me know!! Thanks

Not for use on a beautiful truck like yours. Maybe an 87 d50.... but then its just for bragging rights.

I have something similar on my truck... it works great except mine is engine driven and not electric like those. It's similar in that it also moves air in the air intake tract. Actually, it's nothing like those since mine works and can push 15psi.
