I clicked on the ad also.

I have a 4.7 and was wondering the same thing about the claimed increase in fuel mileage and horsepower.

If it were true and that easy and inexpensive how come everybody hasnt don't it? My thoughts are its a scam and most likely might negatively effect the engine. I'd stay away.

I tried one on my '06 4.7 just because it was so cheap and it didn't work at all. I removed it after about 3 months of using it and I actually think things have improved since I removed it. Not worth the money.
