I'm assuming a link was meant to be posted for us to view, right? Or are we just deciding based on the description you gave?

Anything that claims those gains for that price is either warranty-voiding in its ineptness or just plain BS. Even the $1500-$2000 ECU tunes don't claim to boost the 5.0L motor that much.

Googled for some info. about this thing and apparently it's a resistor that gets wired into the intake air temp circuit to trick the computer into thinking the temp is different outside. From what I've read it could do some serious harm to your car, but then again what would you expect from a $90 part that claims to add that much power?

Racing cars teams pay thousands of dollars to get an extra 35HP - I am surprised that anyone could consider it can be done for 100!

But then, it was never difficult to sell snake oil, was it! Trusty ebay!

Oh yes. eBay just allowed the snake-oil salesmen to not have to leave the comfort of their own home.

I love the "testimonials"... "... Can't Stay off the Gas Pedal "- 95 Accord George D.
I'm sure you can't George... in a 95 Accord, you have to beat three shades of sh*t out of the engine just to get it up to 45mph in a decent time! :bash:
