    Hey i was looking at all the B.S. stuff on ebay and saw this. well of course it is probably fake or doesn't work, but i was just gonna ask what you guys think. Yes i know if getting more power was really that cheap, then everyone would do it, but i just thought if nothing else this could prove that they dont work. Has anyone ever bought this to see what it does??

    says its a resistor, isnt that different from a fuse??
    fuse just protects something from too much power going to it by blowing out,

    it also says it will give you 20 horse power...

    a resitor changes ohms... or the impedence of a circuit.

    ok its a resitor placed in line of the iat sensor and makes it think the incoming air is cooler and more dense thuse injecting more gas

    Basically i am still trying to sell the Sol, so i figure having the intake and exhaust might appeal to more people.

    so why not the axle back, i know it is still the stock piping, but is it too much $$ or are you just saying performance-wise it is not good

    both, and frankly, the more-stock your car is- the faster and more $$ it will sell for.

    :/

    if it's a real 5Zigen Fireball exhaust then it is well worth it. the muffler alone sells for almost $250. if it's an imitation then its not worth it. and as far as the intake, they all do the samething.

    my friend had the 5Zigen Fireball exhaust on his b20/vtec turbo hatch. I liked how it sounded. of course it will probably sound a little different since you'll be puttin it on a n/a car.
