    bhp resistors

    hi everyone bin browsin ebay to see what cool stuff i could find for my new car keep seeing these things bout 10 quid they say they give 12 - 20 bhp im pretty sure its just a resistor on the air temp sensor i guess it tells the computer the air is denser anyone no if theres anythin else in them and what size is the resistor refuse to 10 quid for a 10 pence resistor

    it will have saved you a few punds when your engine didn't go boom from fitting it.

    i bought one a few years back and so did a few of my mates at work. TBH we all had the same reaction, better pick up in lower revs! Now was that because of the resistor or that we were booting it more because we thought we had more BHP??!!!
    199 BHP 322 lbs/ft Torque from a smokey diesel!!!!

    Question

    LOL haa I swear Ffoeg is in denial cos when he bought his ones off ebay they stitched him up and sold him diode instead..


    Fair Play!!


    Seriously though, if they are so shiiiit how comes these peeps selling them are getting so much feedback from so many people, and not people with one or two good feedback either.


    I also wonder if they do work, but people bad mouth them once they find out they could of gone maplins and paid 4p for one...lol


    Do you still use yours Astra Coupe?
