Redline Power Chip on eBay?

Scam?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...QQcmdZViewItem

20+ more MPG? in addition to 35+ more HP? For $25?

Huh? Did I miss something in physics class? Did someone perfect Cold Fusion while I wasn't looking, too?

This has been tested. We lost .5 mpg and no increase in acceleration. Hasn't screwed up anything electronic yet, but I'm sure it's still an unattended variable..

What TCP Meta said. It only does one thing: takes your money, in a small enough amount you will most likely write it off rather than pursue getting a refund.

So I told you guys before, that my Uncle Matt bought one for his 94 New Yorker. He has a 3.5L in it. On the ebay site, it claimed better MPG's and 60 HP!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say, we got neither. I want 60 more HP for $7....
