    Apparently they are just resistors that goes where your air sensor (IAT) goes to fool they ecu, is it that simple an worth ago because on the feedback peolple seem to say it works and doesnt blow up there engines??

    Like using a PC's fan as a supercharger I've got more chance of finding rocking horse poo than you have of getting 5bhp to 10bhp out of that

    Just wondering if anyone has tried one or know anyone who has as the buyers of these are happy with there purchase. It must be doin something.
    Not intending on buyin one to break my engine just curious if its a simple bypass that works.
    As in does it tell the car its cold all the time? ifso it would harm the engine in the long run surely...

    It may make a difference for a little while as IIRC it tells the car that more air is going in that it really is and then adds more fuel
