That's a Tornado fuel saver for full-size cars... they were a huge rage about 5-8 years ago boasting more MPG and power, but never worked because the intake manifolds themselves are designed to smooth and optimize airflow. When independent media/companies did testing, they actually reduced HP and increased MPG on some cars.

I doubt there'd be any significant gains on our cars, just because of the nature of 2-stroke nitro engines.
