Default WTF? is this for real?

I saw this thing on Ebay... is this for real or a scam?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-2...ayphotohosting

Sorry I don't know how to do links. Basically, all it is is a "speed" chip that acts as a "piggy back" to the ECU that increases the fuel injection to the motor and supposively is dyno proven to increase hp by 15-20. Lemme know what you guys think and if you can get to the link or not. Thanks guys.

im sure it would work, hp numbers i dont think would be that high thou. as long as they make those right. from what im getting from the ad, it changes the output resistance of the MAF(very easy to do, which = cheap)to say its reading different temperature air, making it either advance the timing/fuel or lean the motor out a little for a better combustion, not sure exactly what that would do. its possible to burn a motor up(over lean) or cause pinging/detonation(advance timing too much) that way tho.

Anything that changes info to the computer aside from actual conditions is not good. A cold air intake actually cools the air so not a big deal but telling the computer it is different then actual? Not good. Any item on ebay you ever see that brags about hp for $1/1hp ratio probably isn't worth it. Also, if you read feedback on these type of items, many say that it wasn't worth it. Don't you think that for $10 everyone here and in every other automotive forum would have them and brag about them?

it will lean out your a/f ratios which will give you more power and less fuel consumption, but in the end you might melt your pistons if it leans it out by too much.
better stay away from it
there are heaps of other mods which can be done under 20$

What kind of mods, Strannik? I am currently working on getting my 87t in mint condition, and then I plan on modding it a bit. It has 255k on it, but the engine was rebuilt ~35k miles ago.This is my first car and I use it as a daily driver, so any cheap and easy to install mods are great.

Any help is appreciated .

Talking

trust me thats not gonna help.... cause i have a buddy use to have those part on his mk3... and 3weeks later on.... he busted out his ecu... cause it got toasted.... and what it does is that... when we open those cheap box... and inside the box... they just use a little ohm resister (spelling need help) to trip the ecu to read cold air... and to me it seens like they just want to cross over your ecu... so its better for stay away from those type of thing... i pretty sure that they have a spacer for the mk2/mk3... find one of this spacer and use on your mk3 thortle body... and it sure give you horse.... thats what i were using on my mk2 tho.... cause i got for free from my bro. in the tokyo. cause he is a serg. base in tokyo right now... and he brough one for me in this past x-mas.. and it does make a diff.... and i hope you can find one of this thortle spacer somewhere in the US.

bla bla bla bla chips

= don't waste your time or money

get a safc, emanage, aftermarket ecu etc if you want to screw with the engine but at least you are screwing with it with the right tools


basically.... no chips

Default crap

i know someone that bought one of these and it did absolutly nothing it gave him worse gas milage which in turn would make it even slower because if you do not need the extra gas it is going to make your car run richer and more bogged out on hard acceleration.
