fact...

in fact if you hook them many them up in parallel. :p :lol:
Seriously???
Thanks for the tip guys. I just ordered 5 of them. So, when I set them up in parallel do I get 100hp extra or is it a geometric progression? :???:

First of all, I'm only a grammar nazi if I don't know what you're trying to say. Secondly, Kezho, I thought you were joking too :crazy:

When the ECU is in closed loop it attempts to keep the air/fuel mixture ratio at what is called Tachometric efficiency (14.7:1) this is the perfect ratio for fuel economy and emissions Not for performance.

I emailed some of the buyers and they said:

"The chip was not actually a chip. It was actually a resistor. I have heard rumors that these resistors will mess up your gauges."

"There were noticable gains in throttle response. I dunno about HP, still need to get it dyno'd."

hahah that is such bull shit!

That kinda reminds me of good old cell phone "boosters". They are sold for 1/20th the price, and they do dick all in the first place!

You are better off giving your money to charity. Good thing that auction has a money back guarantee.....

No, for real, it really works, did you guys check out the "commom questions" section?!? These two I liked specially !

Does it increase or decrease my MPG?
No, your gas mileage will be the same. :suspicio:
Do I need any special skills or tools?
No special skills are required. A simple pair of strong pliers will be necessary for the install. :shock:

It's a magical resistor. Just like how ham, pork, and bacon all come from one magical animal.
Now, that was funny Gnosis.

As for the Ebay item...nothing is free. If you could get 20HP for $20...why spend $399 for an APR chip.

Actually, not all 16 of those feedbacks are his "chip" sales.
