Please! Help!

Hey guys... where is the IAT sensor on my 07' zx4 ST? I bought one of those chips that connects to it and I can't find it. Can someone tell me where it is? Also... does anyone know how good these things work?

Is it the one that you buy from ebay?

If it is, just throw it away.

yeah, just throw it away. Sadly, you are a victim of the "buy this for 20 bux and get 20 hp" scam. Sorry...

Hey, you live and learn. Something to remember in the future, power doesn't come cheap. IF someone is offering something that is supposed to add all of HP for little $$, it is most likely a scam. Sorry you had to pay for this lesson.
