kinda an oldschool way to make cheap hp. doesn't really apply to our motors since our dual throttle bodies make great hp already.

These appear to be a modern version of the "turbo boosters"* that were used on carbureted engines back in The Good Old Days. Didn't do any good back then; probably don't do any good now. YMMV

* I can't find a picture but they were basically a fixed set of fan blades that caused turbulence before the air got to the carburetor. Something you'd find in the JC Whitney catalog.

You're searching the wrong thing. This was a highly sought-after mod back in the 350Z days.
