CAI on a truck to me seems like a waste of money. Its letting more air in for what 1-2 hp. More air gets in but more dirt also gets in as well. Money can be well spent elsewhere and the OEM filter is more than sufficient unless your looking into heads, cam etc, and at that point mpg is no longer the main focus. Just my opinion

The tornado creates a air vortex and puts a twist on the air flow coming into the throttle body it works for beer bottles why not air intakes.(Just kidding its a waste)

I put one in mine, I did not buy it, a friend gave it to me. It came out of his ram he bought used, he found it when he put an SRI in.

I get 16 city, 22 hwy, with or without the tornado. Done it both ways. makes no difference.

Agreed. Only reason I gave it a shot was because it was free, snake oil if you ask me.

They are truly a waste of money. The CAI or a free flow air filter is best suited for your truck. To get the best bang for your buck after the better air flow into the engine you also need a better flow out with your exhaust.
