I like that is says it "adds up to 150 HP" and "adds up to 30 MPG". Yeah if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

They are, in fact, crocks of shit. They are a simple $0.05 resistor bought from China that keeps your engine in closed loop. Thus makeing it run rich, and causign many issues down the line. DO NOT BUY!

TunedPerformance is not responsible for any damage to your vehicle. This is very rare and usually due to existing problems!
It is always recommended that you have a professional installer install any products for your car! (this is very easy though)
Haha. I asked him to show the dyno results to prove these claims.

I thought using resistor spark plugs already gave you 1400 horses and 220 MPG?

Resistor spark plugs help to reduce wasted spark energy. 1400 h.p. is a little much of a claim. I have only seen 1300, but that was a Kenuter valve dyno.

I think the Kfluegen one is more accurate. The Kenuter valve dyno only works well when piston return springs are installed in the test engine. Also, with the Kfluegen dyno, you can use an "O" pipe on the vehicle so you dont have to breath exhaust fumes, and you get a littl more power.

I'd be skeptical about any product that says it works with 1990 model of a car that didn't come out till '96.
