    Vehicle : Insignia

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    It sits in the air intake pipe just after the MAF. It causes the air you 'rotate' as it enters the engine, allowing all of the oxygen in the air entering the engine to get used fully to ignite all of the fuel - so that there is no wasted, unburntfuel at the end of each combustion cycle.

    It is called a 'Turbinator' and that is not a joke.

    In that case, you'll be interested in my conversion which allows you to run any car on a 10% solution of earwax and cat litter...........

    Apparently if you wear it on your head it saves up to 67% on shoes...cos you'll look stupid and won't go out as much. Is it called the turbinator because it's made a series of crap films and now thinks it's a politician?
