It bleeds air into the intake absolutely no benefit other than lowering the vacuum when decellerating and reducing the braking vacuum. If anything it lets you coast a little more with less pumping losses at zero throttle so you don't slow down as much when you take your foot off the gas. No moving parts and they tell you how it works by saying everything BUT how it works.

I wrote an article on this. It's in the article section, but it's still in pure HTML. I'll try to convert it.

Hmmmmm. It is made by KHAOS. Now, on Get Smart, there was an organization called KAOS. Maybe this is post Chapter-11 version of the same?

The Khaos Turbo Charger is made by a guy inthe Phillipines. Unfortunately, he's scamming a large number of Filipinos out of their hard earned money with this device.

On their web page it says ...

Will KSGS damage or improve engines?

KSGS enhances the efficiency of engines, 4-12 cylinders.

Is it a scam ?
Perhaps its a placebo device , in which case , it could be money well spent.(cough -cough)

Just look at the alternative medicine and vitamin suppliment trade.
Muli-billion dollar industries that dont offer much scientific proof of what they claim actually works.
I admit ,some vitamins and alt medicines are proven to work but not all.

But it makes people feel like they have some control in improving thier lives and some even feel better.

This and many other FE devices probably don't work , but if buying it helps someone to revise their driving habbits and reduce their consumption that way they will be happy - and good on them.
