So much for "Supercharge any car"
Not surprisingly, these things don't fare very well when you try to test one on a dyno. Popular Mechanics tested one and had it fail miserably, but they didn't post very many details. Now "NirVTECn20" on the Honda-Tech.com forum has dyno tested one and posted his results online. The result is a loss of power throughout pretty much the entire RPM range. At one point, he's lost 3 hp. And interestingly enough, that's a better result than Popular Mechanics got with the Tornado Fuel Saver, which cost them 10% of their horsepower.
