Look at this thing:





Looks like something you would make out of your Tuna Fish can when you are bored while eating...

I just had to share this since i got a good laugh from it

° This is the OFFICIAL Velocity Tuner!! Don’t be fooled by imitations!!
Imitations :lol: what would they be imitating...

° You can save up to 31% on gas and add up to 16% more horsepower!!
So they are claiming about 6 more mpg (assuming ~20 average before this AMAZING mod). Then 20+ HP :lol:

° Velocity Tuner has a lifetime guarantee!!
We guarantee that in 20 years it will still look like a piece of randomly bent metal.

° Precision laser cut from stainless steel like no other product of it’s kind!!
Laser cut = more power, everyone knows that...DUH!!!

How do they create such power you may ask:

The Velocity Tuner swirls the air in the intake tube much like a tornado. As a result, this allows the air
to move faster and more effectively around corners and bends. Think of it this way: when you drain a
bathtub, a whirlpool is created because it’s the fastest way for the water to go down the drain. The
concept is the same. The faster the air moves in your intake tract, the more power your car, truck or
SUV will have - it’s that simple.
I dont even know how to comment on that one...

So what about the MPG increase you may ask?:

The Velocity Tuner creates a mini-tornado which in turn creates finer particles of atomized fuel allowing
better flame proliferation for a more complete ignition in the combustion chamber. Your vehicles ECU
(computer) reads data through the O2 sensor then recognizes the change. In turn, it adjusts by cutting
surplus fuel delivery thereby resulting in better gas mileage.
Lets just use a lot of big words like combustion, proliferation, and atomized fuel because people will be impressed ;)

All for the LOW LOW price of $15.99

Do i hear GB anyone :lol: :lol: :lol:

Come on, are you guys serious? Nobody's had a tuna fish sandwich yet? Somebody get hungry and mod a tuna can and try this. This could be the next "best mod for under $100"

"Laser cut". Why the hell it looks bent and dented already in the first pic? And there is some sort of joint or seam visible on top the round part, maybe the guy holding the laser had to sneeze.

So I called them out on it and here is the trail of messages:

Me first:
Are you kidding me. You honestly think this glorified Tuna Can is going to give me a HP and TQ increase? Please go sell your trash somewhere else.

By the way I love your remarks about feed back

Real professional!!

I tune cars for a living, and this product is crap and I am reporting you to eBay. People like you should be shut down for scaming the public.

Them back to me:
Don't buy it if you don't want it - it's that simple. Look at our Feedback - obviously other people DO NOT agree with you. Additionally, YOU have not right to establish our Terms of Sale - we do since we pay to list. It's people like YOU that has affected our Feedback Policy. Other Sellers have similar policies!!!!!

Go ahead and report us to to eBay (for what I don't know since we have done nothing wrong). Other people are selling similar items - have you e-mailed them?!

By the way, on a final note ... YOU have been reported to eBay for a violation of their eMail Messaging System. Please do not contact us again and invest your efforts into something a bit more constructive.

Thank you,
Grille-Tech, LLC

Me back again:
What policy have I violated? Calling you out on your BS product is not a violation of the useage agreement with eBay.

I am going to buy one of your products and PROVE that it is crap, then I will post it all over the internet and report you again to ebay for fraud. I will also leave feedback accordingly.

We shall see if the eBay Police come get me, or if they prevent me from buying one of their Tuna Can Tops.

The sad part is he is probably making a fortune off crap.
