    X-Chip

    hi i was just browsing e-bay and came across this chip http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/REAL-Performan...QQcmdZViewItem and i just wondered if anyone has used one and what they thought of them ...to be honest im not to cleaver when it comes to cars lol do you think they would be that easy to fit if you have to mess around with the ECU? also it says it wont harm the car either what do you guys think?

    its a resistor that alters the signal going to the ECU that determines how much air is coming into the car, so that the ECU pumps more fuel in. it will make your car run rich and over time it could potentially damag your engine.

    it will NOT give you anywhere near the gains claimed, and TBH you'd be better off setting fire to the money you'd have spent on it.
