Sounds to good to be true, so it probably is. For less than $20 shipped is someone going to be the Guinea pig? NOT ME!

Cheers!

Let me know how that works out for you. I doubt it works, probably says "when tested with a supercharger installed" in fine print. Don't think a tune would even get you that. Could be wrong though.

Dude, my friend bought something like this one time from Ebay, and it literally came in the mail in a tiny envelope and it was just a bent wire with a fuse in it. Haha, you'll "lol" if you buy it and that's what it is, well your friends will.

It's a scam though. When's the last time you saw anything that gave you that much HP that cheap?

it's a diode used to change the signal going to the mass air flow sensor. . . It lets the computer think that it is always running in the "cold" cycle.... dumping more fuel in the motor at all times.

Wow...So it dumps more fuel into the engine and increases MPG at the same time??? WTF it must be magic! I bet if I daisy chain two of these together I will get 90 additional HP and 30 more MPG.

That guy on E-bay needs to be

I like the sellers use of the word "secondarily"....

I'm an instrumentation and control systems engineer and this is throwing up red flags for me all over the place. Hacking an input signal to a control system makes for poor control. To truly get good control you need to have an ACCURATE input and adjust your tuning parameters to obtain the desired system response.

I would love to hear the basis behind these claims:
Quote:
++ENGINE LIFE

Extends the life of engine spark plugs

Extends the life of engine oil

Extends the life of engine belts by reducing engine RPMs

Improved engine performance extends the time between costly engine tune-ups and check-ups.
I agree, that guys needs to be
