Has anyone got any experience with this? Is it BS? He claims 7 to 15% gains on all motors.
Oh ya, 7 bucks shipped!

If a .97 cent resistor could do all that, every manufacture would have been on it years ago.

Why don't you send me the money and you'd probably get the same results from that chip.

i know some friends that used to do this on their old hondas and the POS 80's supras, all the bolt on stuff works a lot better on restrictive 80's early 90's cars...but the motors were worn out 100k+ on all these cars and thoroughly blew up after just messing around with them.

same guys who ran 100shot nitrous on bone stock engines just to blow them up to rebuild them.

it'll mess with your car definately
