After all, my knowledge of the Bernoulli effect of low and high pressure areas coupled with a thorough understanding of Coanda says that any air mass traveling undisturbed has a tendency to increase its pressure when constricted yet does not when it is turbulent especially when this turbulence is rotary and at a parallel plane to the constriction.

All that physics makes my head spin. But shortly after the air gets passed the Tornado, it's going to get constricted big time when the piston comes up and smacks it up da side of da head.

Anyway, now you have the opportunity to be our test subject. Please keep detailed records, including what you ate for breakfast, and the ambiant temperature of the road surface, etc. A short sound byte of the mechanic laughing would be nice, too ;-)
