the fact the seller is in Hungary and offers a 10 yr warranty ...makes me a little skeptical.... been through that already ebay sellers offering warranty... part failed refused to honour the warranty..and there was nothing i could do about it as past 90 days...warranty was for 2 yrs

its just a resistor, that makes the ecu think its colder outside then it realy is. upping the timing ( to an extent knock sensors will overide) and ritchening the fuel ( to an extent 02's will override)

so yes it may work alittle bit..


but i wouldtn buy anyhting from anyone outta the country and you can make your own for 5bucks

There is only one way to increase power electronicly. And that's through the PCM/tune.

btw, I've got a bridge for sale. It's only $99.95 Anyone interested?

Well the first ebay link was removed, so I guess they found that crap.

The second one though.....that takes the cake....even more then that stupid tornado or the chip thin with 2 wires....LOL

So that little POS you stick in the lighter socket does all of this?

Improve your Fuel Economy (Gas Mileage) by 10 to 30%

- Boost your engine power
- Improve engine starting
- Extend your battery life
- Decrease power loss from the use of an air conditioner
- Improve your headlight and audio performance
- Decrease hydrocarbons in exhaust
- Reduce static electricity

They could have stopped at adding HP, but they HAD to start adding on other complete BS items.

Adding power to the electrical system and decreasing hydrocarbons in the exhaust......that's like saying changing your rad coolant will prolong the life of your tires.

People that buy this need to be removed from the Gene pool.
