I remember hearing people experimenting with crap like that... something that involved a leaf blower.

Well someone deserves the Darwin Award for ever considering it. If anything it restricts flow. It's trying to create pulses of air in the same tube. A longer pulse is good for cramming more air at low speed due to high velocity caused by the longer runner with a narrow tube. A shorter pulse caused by a fat more short tube is better for higher rpm and speed. My Spec V has two intake runners with the shorter one opening up at 5k RPM. Do you really think Nissan would do all that if that "turbonator" would do the same thing? It's a scam dude leave it alone. Swirling the air anywhere else but the actual cylinder just causes flow reversion and turbulance which impedes airflow causing you to get less power. It just doesn't work.
