No. What they're asking 20 bucks for is in fact a resistor that costs them something in the order of 20 cents. What it will do when installed is trick your ECU into running a richer mixture. While it may lead to a tiny increase in horsepower it will not do what they say it will.

Hahah.. I've got a whole set of resisitors I bought from Richard (D ick) Smith for $1..

These things on eBay.. FFS..

It fools the ECU into thinking the air is colder than it actually is. The ECU responds by pumping in more fuel, running a richer mixture..

It's the equivalent of f(cking around with a carby for a richer mixture..

The only thing it'll do is bust up your cats and have you spending more at the bowser..

Put the money towards a zorst or a CAI..
