I think its just a resistor for the MAF. He doesnt say 100hp gain. He says dont be fooled, its a 20% gain. Cool. $23 and Ill have 600hp. Alrigt! LOL.

Gotta love his disclaimer "If installed correctly." The fucked up thing is he's making a bunch of money off of this crap and people are leaving him positive feedback

These things are crap. All it does is change the MAF output and tells the ecu to give more fuel. There's no way in hell a 20% anything coming from that crap. Might as well get a Turbonator and an electric turbo or just give me your money if youre gonna throw it away.

lol no you guys missed the irony! the picture says 100hp, 85mpg.

then in his description he says, "The competition will say you can see gains of up to 100 hp and 30 mpgs or more). DO NOT BE FOOLED!! In order to get an increase close to 100hp, you would need to install a turbo or supercharger and have an engine built to handle it."


i thought it was funny because he has a picture saying exactly was he says not to be fooled by

Did you use a left-handed screwdriver to install it?

MAF and IAT resistors have been tested on cars before. You're better off actually adjusting your A/F ratio with a tune.
