Hey, its okay... I realize not everybody knows about that thing ( yes it is useless )... No flame from me, it never hurts to ask...It is funny though, those of us that have been here a while have seen this thread 50 times, but no worries.

just toss your 50 bucks in the driveway and light it on fire, and you'll be ahead 20 bucks...

better yet give me 20 bucks, and you can be 50 ahead ;)

isnt there a law against this type of stuff? false advertisement i think its such b.s. what ebay is filling up with. chips that give you 20+hp, rolled up sheets of metal with vanes, electric superchargers, auctions to win sites that tell you where to buy in car dvd players for $10...

theres a law but the autions are not lying they do sell u info on where to get things cheap. they can add up to that much horsepower if u build the engine up. so in all its not false just not worth the money for that little part.

Some times you gotta ask yourself...have I seen that on race cars? If the answer is no then its not worth lookin any further.
They'll be the first ones to have them if they work, untill the sanctioning body's band them.

BS! BS! BS!

If they really know how to get stuff really cheap why are they so willing to sell the info to you for $9.00? Why not just keep it to themselves and make a killing selling Plasma TV's on e-Bay all day long. I think they would net far more than selling you bogus info at $9.00 a crack.

And .39 cent resistor or a .99 cent hunk of shaped tin is not going to help (or be seriously considered) by anyone really working to "build the engine up"

theres a huge difference in a reagular daily driver and a race car. the reason u never see them on those cars is becasue millions and millions or R&D go into those cars to make it near perfect in everyway, as where your everyday daily driver doesnt. so small mods like this do make a difference. i know that my dad always bought those but before he did he took his average MPG for 6 months and then put it on and comparded it to the part and MPG did always improve. nothing like 10mpg but between 2-5MPG

i can say those work because i bought one and i have gotten many things for lower prices for exaple
ipod nano-80
ipod video 60G-180
sony digital camera 5.1 MP(when it first came out)-85
xbox with 1 game and 2 controllers-90
nintendo gamecube-40

so,e of the stuff on those list u have to jump threw hoops to get others are easy.
