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.

.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...[8]

People are actually BUYING those things???
If your buying something that claims +20 hp for $9 (or somewhere around there) you need your head examined.

the one i bought was from a company called vortek, i thought it was vortec. the colors were all white and blue and the font was all the same and everything. it was supposed to be a new chip that they were testing and there were supposed to be 2 more stages of chips coming soon. it didn't sound like all the others.
