vortex tuning performance claims?

hello, just wondering if anyone has ever tried the vortex generator? its basically a turbine that fits in your intake pipe and creates a vortex which equates to better combustion and increased bhp. heres the ebay link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT. Any ideas? dont want to waste money on products that dont live up to there claims!!!. Also has any one any ideas why my cd player skips over bumps?its really sensitive!!!. cheers guys

In an old job of mine aswell as fitting lots of electrical goodies into cars I also fitted parking sensors, every kit came with a drill bit for drilling the bumper part of the drill bit looked just like this device. I am now gutted I have thrown hundreds of these away, along with that thing that looks like the mrs old hair drier attached to the intake I'm sure I would be driving a Ferrari beater!!! Add a few of them fuel saving magnets and I could have all that speed and have the economy of a prius
