WOW!

I can't believe it's true. AND, this is the quote in the ad that convinced me:

"It is More Responsive , More Powerfull & You will Like it! "

I was concerned that it would be more responsive, more powerful, but that I wouldn't like it...whew!

Better bid fast guys, or my $2.75 will take it!!!


PS - Not!

lol: 'Your 1/4-mile times will Increase a few tenths of a second or more and your 1/4-mile MPH will improve as well.'

Really, what a coincidence! If I do the 1/4 mile faster, I will be going faster? :P

Now that I read their description, it kind of makes sense that it would allow you to pull more hp from your engine. All you are doing is fooling the computer by changing the voltage that goes into the analog to digital converter. However, if your already have a performance chip, I doubt this would help any. Furthermore, hardware mods to a computer system are a very sensitive issue. You never know what kind of current thresholds you may be violating, or if you are going outside of the safe input impedance specifications. Resistors are horrible when it come to picking up noise and electromagnetic discharges. If you want your computer to behave differently, get a chip. BTW, $2.75 for a resistor is a ripoff. If you buy bulk they are under a dime each. evenm worse is the $5.25 for shipping! You can tell this person is not honest. The description evenm suggests that you take the mod off when you visit the dealer just in case it voids the warranty.
