Hey guys,

I almost forgot I even done this last year. I got one of these things for nearly nothing off Ebay and took the wife's 4.0 OHV 1995 Explorer to the dyno for comparison. One major thing, it didn't pickup ANY milage at all. As for the dyno runs, mind you this too was before I got into the tuning business, they show maybe a 1hp increase, this means nothing. I can run a vehicle back to back and see upto a 3-5hp difference just between runs. In short the Tornado did NOTHING for the money....


Baseline Dyno pull for a stock 95 4.0 OHV Explorer

Baseline Dyno pull with the Tornado

Both pulls on one sheet to show comparison

I thought I would post this on the other thread about the Tornado but I think this really deserves it's own post.

Thanks, Doug.

Sticky for sure! I was at Autozone yesterday and there was a display in the middle of the store, stocked with Tornados! I was talking to one of the employees about it and he feels the same way about the Tornado as we feel about TB spacers :D

Now someone needs to do the same for throttle body spacers, and we can put that one to bed once and for all. ;)

If someone has one for either a OHV or SOHC that they'd be willing to let me borrow I would do that as well. I'm not gonna buy one, hahha.

Thanks, Doug.

What about all the satisfied customers tho? I'm sure these types of MODs varry depending on the application, maybe they just don't benefit the xplorer much?

Where's their proof that they're satisfied? That the customers haven't come in to the offices demanding their $65 back or someone dies? Do you really believe everything that you read on the internet?

Because when people buy something that's supposed to enhance performance, they're expecting it. Even if there's nothing there they notice a gain. It's all in the head. It's not until they remove this mod that they see it was a waste of money, since the performance is the same.

Don't listen to dyno results. They mean nothing in the real world :rolleyes:

We have only dynoed OUR cars. It's possible it may have difference results on other cars. I can't help but remember in the infomercial how frequently they noted: "Results will varry" to cover their butts. I have always thought these things were junk and I'm just glad I didn't buy one.
