Default Anybody ever tried this mod on their car?

People are getting creative each day trying to get more performance out of their cars but this mod is something I have never heard of before...

Anyone else tried this?

Hey guys, please help with my mods gone wrong.....

He did it all wrong....yer supposed to put the sand in the crankcase, not the intake!!! (that way it will polish the piston rings and bearings as well) No wonder it's so hard to start...'ya gotta do it right....
I heard somewhere that if you can't find sandblasting sand, that you could substitute steel BB's instead....
My brother did try the water in the crankcase once though: he was driving across a river and fell into a deep spot....

That's got to be a joke, then again I've heard lots of crazy things that kids do - painting brake pads, blindly driving in pools of water with those low cold air intakes they have, lowering the car and not changing the alignment (nothing as funny as seeing tires sticking out at a 30 degree angle), and nitrous - no telling how many kids have blown up their engines with nitrous abuse.

LOL, this is my favorite response:

"The problem is, you did it wrong. You gotta do the fuel system sand blasting treatment first. 25lbs in the gas tank, and THEN 25 lbs through the intake.......... DUH."

ROFL

This works for polyps, not engines. What an idiot.

If you find out you have polyps in your intestine eat two teaspoons of sand a day for three weeks and it will abrade them off the walls of the intestine.

Sucking sand into the intake. Jeez!

I am pretty sure it's a joke.

Remember when someone was asking if direct exhaust injection (DEI) into their engine would work?

Or remember when someone claimed they built a Honda engine in their basement and the basement only had one door to get out and it was thru the house....and they were trying to figure out how to get the engine out.

Next someone will ask if waxing their car makes it faster by making it so slick it reduces wind drag.
