The only fans we have are the radiator fans that keep the coolant from overheating... This link is full of crap.

The author is 100% on a car from the 50's!! All current cars already have electronic fans. Also too, you won't want to throw a carb on this car either ;)

E fans work on trucks(At least the last one I worked on 2005 F-150), but when it comes to current cars I think all of them comes with it

LOL people that dont have car knowledge will believe any "adds ##hp!". Purely a sales tactic that is full of BS.

Back before the dawn of man most automobiles had a pulley driven cooling fan right behind the radiator. It was so common that when replacing the belt it was more commonly known as the "fan belt". This cooling fan often had a pretty steep pitch and the faster the engine would rev meant the more resistance the fan would create on the engine. Several designs were tried to eliminate the drag on the engine but ultimately the answer was to replace the belt driven fan with an electrical one. Nearly all new cars/trucks built in the 2000s are without a belt driven fan.
The alternator does create a small amount of drag on an engine and this drag is slightly higher when an increased load is on it, but the power loss at the wheel is nominal.
If you want to increase HP without modifying or rebuilding your engine then you’ll need to find a way to manipulate the fuel/air ratios. The best way is to have your engine “tuned”.
Now, that should clear it up! :)

EDIT; the TORNADO" is BS!
