intake resistor mod

Would putting a resistor on the MAF which causes the engine to increase the timing work on the 2.3?

You can make your own for the price of some connectors and resistors. It just goes on the wire that send the intake temps back to the computer, so it seems colder and so the timing gets advanced.
