    Seems to be offering an awful lot... Sounds like a bit of a scam, but I don't know much about cars.

    yea maybe a scam, but i do think drive by wire throttle response can be a little slow some times so could be a good little mod if it works.

    Jeez the utter crap that people make up and the claims are unbelievable.

    Mate this is in the same league as the resistor trick off ebay.

    Or the electric supercharger


    Save your money and buy a remap.
    Its a jam thing
