    It's crap... like "As Seen on TV" stuff.

    Ever heard the phrase, "If it's too good to be true...?" Stay away from those devices that guarantee improved performance/gas mileage. Any improvement would likely be anecdotal at best and hardly based on a true long-term scientific study.

    snake oil,
    flim-flam,

    If it sounds to good to be true...it probably is.

    Edit: Ha! Beat me to it. :eek:

    Even if stuff like this did work, what would the side effect be. Advancing time does improve power and economy but too far and you sacrifice the engine for minimal gains.

    like taking steroids. Is big muscle a good comprimise for a tiny dick and heart attack before you hit 40?
