Stay away from any of those products on ebay that state hugh HP gains of +20HP for under a $100.
It ain't gonna happen.

Yeah... stay away from those... just like those 35 dollar spark plugs that claim 10hp or those $8 headlight bulbs that have "the appearance of HID" and come in those packages with more japanese words than english words on them.

That crap you see on ebay is a $.50 resistor from Radioshack. Steer Clear.

.50 cents at Radio Shack but only .02 cents at your local electronics store.
Those guys on ebay are making almost pure profit when they sell one of those resistors to some unfortunate sucker...
