Question Turbonators

Anyone heard of the Turbonators? This cheap device said it could give 35hp to any vehicle. Sounds to good to be true, although a few staff at my work place with trucks said they used it and felt that if worked for them. Comments?

Question Thanks

Three strikes is good enough for me. I got the Dansk exhaust, header, but no perfomance chip yet. Any recommendation on a good performance chip for the bucks? One that's actually been tested by Porsche.

There is no Porsche approved chip other than the Bosch Motronic that came in your car. I have heard good about REVO software though. GIAC makes software too, but some users have posted negative results with it.

I wasn't aware that Porsche tested anybody's "chips." Why would they want to certify something that with all intents and purposes SHOULD void your vehicle's warranty?

I thought it was determined that the latest so-called performance chips weren't providing any big time HP without a major intake/header/cats/muffler swap/package, i.e. $$$? Did I miss something?
