    A Resistor Chip whatever that is. Looks like alot of people got them and liked them. Probably the same one's that buy the fuel molecule aligners and stuff.

    You can install that with your Tornado and gain about 50 hp. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'm not sure, but it sounds like it's too good to be true to me.

    Well, judging by the number of times they say, "IT WILL WORK!!", you know it doesn't work. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    My god! the only thing I think they could be doing is changing the reading of either the O2 sensor or the engine temperature to trick the computer into leaning out some. That a real sweet trick if you like burned pistons.
    The crap people will buy never fails to amaze me. If this thing was safe don't you think that GM would have installed it from the factory to make the EPA happy.
    I run a Cellphone repair shop. I get asked every day about that stupid sticker antenna. Hmm no dirrect connection to the phone. You put it under the battery that has metal jackets on the cells. The back hosing of ALL phones has a sheild coating to prevent stray RF from excaping the phone. So this thing is installed between two peices of metal for all intents and purposes. Is it going to do anything...NO.

    It is a resistor that fools the ECM and makes it think the engine is running 15 degrees cooler than it is. Its an enrichment thing. I have heard of them working some.
