    Chip or con

    Has anyone seen the chips-actually a resistor on ebay you put into your an air inlet sensor to trick your car to thinking your getting more and colder air/oxygen in than you actually are thus apparently increasing fueling rate and power.There have been alot purchased and alot of positive feedback even proven r/road figures with some sellers/buyers.Although a couple of people have warned of possible damage and fault code reads.One says the inreased fuel results in carbonizing of the piston rings and sleeves and the head gasket to go cause of a bad fuelburn.Anyone know whats true whats not as i said thereare alot-(hunderds)of happy customers
