Default Thinking of getting a Tornado for better airflow

Just trying to get everyone opinion. I have heard that these tornados are bad and good. I think, in my truck, it goes inside the air intake thingy, lol. The one that goes from the air filter to the black plactic piece right in front of the trottle body. Sorry about the wording. Still do not really know what everything is called is all.

So what does every think or should I just not get it or something different all together.

Thanks
Scott

I have no idea, it's supposed to spin the air in the intake tract, but with all the ribbing and restrictions it would probably be a waste of money. Spend the money on a K&N replacement filter instead or buy a nice CAI.

If you want to throw money away, I'll send you my PayPal info! Your money is better spent on something else for your truck.

I'll give you my PayPal too! Volant makes a nive 4.7 intake! Pricey, but good! The K&N will be your best bet!

That would be a wiser investment, either save up for the Cold Air Intake, or drop in a better breathing air filter, and then swap out the corrugated plastic inlet pipe for a smooth one.
