Results have been posted about this here before. You lose horsepower with those resistors. Return the resistors and buy yourself a candy bar

The mod works to some extent on calibrations that use the IAT value as an input to the warm engine spark calculation. Later model Rangers have the IAT compensation table 'zeroed out' so a resistor does not give the desired effect.

More HERE.

I bought a Juice Box from ebay and that's all it is is a resistor, and it acutally seem like my truck has a bit more power. Not much for the $20 I payed for it, but there is some. Although I heard the IAT mods only work on the older model's computers
