I don't know if any of you have ever heard of the Tornado Air Management system, but I got one for my 97 Tibby and there was a noticable power difference from what I had before. Just thought I would let you guys know about this product cause it really does work. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

isn't that a thing that goes in the intake piping and spins as the air goes in?
CAR&DRIVER tested and showed ABSOLUTELY NO POWER GAIN but maybe it's not the same one

I love my Tib

I put one on my 94 excel. It was the most inexpensive mod done with the best performance. 3 things I noticed:

1, On a street at a certain point I could get up to 62 MPH without it. After installing over the same distance I could achieve 70 MPH (i think that is pretty good).

2, Before install 41 MPG after install 48 MPG.

3, the car ran smoother, what the engine had sounded like at 5,000 RPM's now had the same loudness at 6,000 RPM's.

I was very pleased with this mod. Purchased one for my 2000, but it is too big. I think it was one for the earlier Accent models! However, I think it will fit into my CAI.

Going from point A to point B in a Hyundai! I may be old school, but have been driving Hyundai's for many years!

You should be able to get one in a cai. Just tell them the diameter size and they should be able to set you up.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

My friend has one of those tornado fixtures, all it is is a bent piece of metal.. pretty flexable too... You can probably make one yourself if you've seen it before. Beats paying $80 for it. Anyway, my friend has heard a slight difference, but haven't really tested the system without it.

Sport Compact Car and Motor Trend have both Dyno tested this little wonders.

Nether magazine recorded any Dyno gains, or fuel mileage change with the Tornado installed.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

yo fellas! lol. I know the thing looks like it couldn't possibly do anything but somehow it does. I have 2 spiralmax's in my 99 tib and am now getting 25 mpg in the city. before i was gettin round 20 or 21 on a good day. That's a big difference!<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hmmm.... this seems strange, considering the Accent only gets 36MPG HWY from the factory...somehow you're getting WAYYY better milleage than Hyundai thinks is possible.

About the Car and Driver and Sport Compact Car Tests are true that they dont produce any kind of hp. I got two Spiral Max I feel the difference and my brother too (in third gear) with my car in a stock form, my friend told me that I was crazy because this was tested and they dont produce power. One day I get the car of my friend (2000 Mitsubishi Mirage Coupe 1.8L) polish it and installed one of this metal piece in his car without telling him. Later I told him that his car feels strange in third gear and he test it in his way to home. The other day he told "What the hell you do to my car I beat an 2000 Eclipse GS (2.4L) and the car feels really faster." Anyway I dont know what this things do but it really works.

2000 Mirage is 113HP/116ft.lbs. but only weighs 2,293lbs.
2000 Eclipse GS is 154HP/163ft.lbs. and weighs 2,985lbs.

41HP difference along with 700 lbs. difference in car weight. I think the mirage would probably win regardless of having this tornado thing or not.
