Universal AirVortex - Anyone Use These? Will They Work?

Well, I was browsing the net and ran across these:

Universal AirVortex

Auctiva Image Hosting


Feel free to browse the whole gallery from 1 to 23 as its all the same item, just different pics, angles and applications.

Its definitely a different design that what Im use to seeing but the question is, will they work?

The design looks a little counterintuitive to me as opposed to the other vortex generators on the market. In my mind installing them backwards would work better ( point of the triangle facing the front of the car as opposed to the wide part of the triangle facing the front )

Any feed back or 2 cents would be appreciated.

Thanks!

LBS

Hello,

I doubt that they will improve FE. I used the AirTabs, and they actually hurt my FE a little.
