    what a load of rubbish

    looking on ebay to see if anything was on there i am interested in and seen this
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UPGRADE-MOD-5-...QQcmdZViewItem
    read the recommendation down the bottom and one of them says
    works a treat 0-60 down from 11.3 to 8.2 (fiat punto cabrio) A*
    surely they are making these up no £2.49 mod can do that!

    They are a complete load of s****. All they do is trick the AFM into thinking the air is colder or more is entering the engine. My brother in law despite my advise bought one for his FTO and it didn't even fit as it said let alone work. You may pick up an extra bhp or 2 until you melt your engine cos it's overfueled. Also most modern engines have a MAP sensor aswell so that cancells it out anyway.

    engines actually run hotter lean than rich......


    but nevertheless overfueling is bad... m'kay
