Seems like this guy is selling a resistor you can buy at radio shack and putting them in modules and making a little HP gain. Sounds interesting but doubtful. ( look at his feedback, people sound pissed for buying a resistor that cost $1 at radioshack for $11 from him, lol.

And while you're at it, you can add some vinyl decals for even more hp.

I still want that shirt: "Vinyl adds horsepower!" haha

I always wondered if all the ricer forums are saying 'debadging adds horsepower' when they attempt to mock the BMW guys

I agree, what basis is everyone basing their opinions on? Has anyone here tried it? Or do you just assume that the users who bought it had the right MODEL/MAKE of BMW for the chip they bought? If so, you would be assuming too much.. Perhaps some had a 740L or something.. OOPS, wont work there. Or maybe they gained HP, but only 5 hp.. The guy didnt claim every car would get a 20 HP gain, just said he "heard claims of".. So what does that tell you?

And whether he bought the part of $1 or $10 isn't of any concern of ours, if he created it, and is able to legally sell it. then fine, by all means, he has a right to do so. If it doesn't work, he offers a 100% guarantee. You know, a pair of jeans cost about $5-10 to make, slap a Hillfiger label on it, and you can earn $40-100 for a pair.. Don't see anyone knocking Hillfiger, even though, his pants are no better then any other brand out there.

So lets not knock the guy, until one of us has actually tested it out for ourselves. Until then, I consider him to be a business man, and not a fraud.
