more than likely, there's nothing more than a resistor or two inside of that project box.

honestly.. you're going to get what you pay for. if you pay 20 dollars for something like that on ebay, you're going to get nothing in return.

if there was a chip out there that was cheap and well worth it, you'd hear all about it, and everyone would already have one.

www.bamachips.com is going to be your best choice- and probably the only one worth making. Doug can/will program a custom tune chip for your truck. if you haven't yet heard about Doug's chips and want to know more specifics, i think the site posted above will tell ya about a few different chips he'll do, which range in price. you won't find one bad review about Doug or bamachips!

Items like this have been floating around on eBay for quite some time.... There is a similar one floating around for the Jeeps with the 4.0L.
Stride OOO is correct....
There is a couple resistors in the box that makes the Rangers ECM think the outside air temp in COLD and richens up the air/fuel ratio....
While it does richen up the mixture... the results are negligable at best....
Save your money and purchase a BAMA SCT Tuner....

OR 4x4

lol... i loved those infomercials... they show one guy at one point.. and he was like.. "Hi, i'm a doctor. i love the tornado so much, i've got two in my car! i'm buying another to put in my wife's car too!"

the only way those tornado things will ever work is if you take them out of their cardboard boxes while driving, and hurl the piece of sliced aluminum at the car behind you. the driver behind you will slow down to avoid the random projectiles coming from your car, so you'll think you're going faster. since you won't actually be going "faster," you won't waste gas driving around at WOT...thus, saving some MPG.
