    I saw on Ebay an auction for a 2.95 resistor that tells the ECU there is colder air coming in the intake. Seems like a good tactic, but what will it actually do to my car in the long run. Has anybody had one on their car, and should I continue to be afraid of putting one on mine?

    you could spend just 20 cents @ radio shack for the same shit.

    In the end it's still ebay scam crap

    to sum it up it tricks the ecu so it will advance the timing. Thats about it.

    which in the long run wont help your motor.


    If you actually did have parts on ur car that would benefit from advanced timing, it would be wisest to get a computer chip or other piggyback device which would allow you to PROPERLY tune your vehicle.
