dude dont buy these chips! there are numerous threads on this. But plain and simple dont buy em. They are a scam. No one makes these for our cars. You would be wasting ur money and might screw up ur car.

Another dead end for the 14623546437234612357643th time. All it basically is is a .03$ radio shack resistor that goes somewhere in your electrical system to fool your cpu into thinking there isn't enough air going into your a/f mix. The cpu says, hey, I need more air in the engine. Could result in lean mixtures, detonation and melting.

That particular one says it's not a simple resistor. They're right. It's still a resistor though. Just packaged differently. Go to mouser.com and look them up. The toggle switch and whatnot is just a fancy way to get them noticed over the other people that simply sell resistors. Please don't waste your time and money with them and tell your friends to do the same and tell them to tell their friends likewise. Hopefully we can beat this dead horse some more.

Somebody should choke that ebayer.

Can I put three tornados in series for 600 horsepower? Where do I paypal?

I just don't understand how people can't think though that one. The tornado. Just think how far the air has to travel after the "spinning". Chances are the geometry inside the air intake, throttle body and intake runners will tame the air to however it was designed to enter. Now FI is a different story.

Since sarcasm isn't readily read online, imagine the next sentence with a thick sarcasm accent. Derr, I gained 37 HP and 7 MPG on my 1984 GMC sierra. I got er done.

I can buy as many on/off switch panels as I want @ Home Depot

Do not blame the registry. Blame yourself.
