    It has to help, anything that allows more oxygen into the intake will help, this is just a fancy way of creating a cooler/denser means of intaking air it seems. In other words, does what a ram air or other induction enhancer would do. They don't come as standard on most cars, but many people fit them to their motors as aftermarket parts with good benefits.

    I don't know about this system, but if it allows cooler/denser oxygen into the intake, don't see why it wouldn't help.

    Sorry, I'm bouncing between MSN, PMs and the forum at the moment!

    Back to hydrogen, I had a chat with the guys at Clifford Cox when we had the rolling road day.
    They had done some tests and found no differences (which was to be expected) but they did notice that even with the system on, there was no sign of any pressure / gasses actually managing to be generated and push their way down the small approx 2mm "gas line" to the intake.

    You'd ideally need a couple of cylinders are 200bar to get any useful gasses moving.

    It doesn't cool or let in more denser oxygen.It produces hyrdogen

    I had a remap done by AP Automotive in Telford, only coz he was local to me & has worked for BMW, anyway I saw some info on this hydrogen thing & asked about it.

    Basically it is fairly new on the market & unless further testing had been carried out & more proven facts given out That its not worth playing with!!

    As said above if it was so hot, why doesn't everyone know about this???
