    Okay, everyone who knows me knows I'm a skeptic about stuff like this. But my jury is still out on it...I am leaning to the bogus side but what I want is any true technical info on this resistor and anyone with experience with it. Where does it go, how does and can it work (I know he says it lowers the fuel injection rich mixture from the factory)?

    To say it just sucks and is bullshit is NOT going to help because that is what 90% of me feels anyway right now. So...check it out and fire away...

    just food for thought. I watch a bit of Powerblock on Spike! TV and they always say horsepower is expensive. That being said I don't see how a $20 module can add 30-40 hp.. That is a huge number!

    I'm not just skeptical, I am convinced it is total BS. Garbage like this is marketed from time to time when gas prices increase. Unsuspecting consumers buy them.

    I wonder why auto manufacturers who invest billion of dollars in R&D didn't factor this very simple principle into the ECU which by the way is far more advanced and intelligent to adapt to varying conditions. If the Big 3 alone adopted this technology, their hunks of metal will sell like hot cakes.

    This is not only a waste of time, its a rip off. :smash:

    Do a search over on TN. I think they've come up a few times. Just a 50cent or whatever resistor added inline somewhere. I never got full details about it either. Seems like I remember something about it working for getting more power (not the numbers posted though), but was bad for long term use.... Not sure though. Once the general consensus was "BS" it got filed away in the back of my mind! :laugh:

    Does the jury have a verdict?

    "Yes your honor..."

    "We the jury find the defendant a guilty peice of shit."

    Court will adjourn for one week for sentencing.

    ---------------------

    ...well, there you have it.
