Yeah I agree. Notice you don't see the name of the company that makes this thing anywhere on the site. You mean to tell me somebody's making these things in their basement and have programming for any car that might want one??? Bullshit. Looks like somebody on a shopping spree at radioshack and selling it on ebay. I wouldn't even give it a second look without knowing who's making the thing.

Looks like a battery for my kids remote controlled car. It looks like you have to run it inline in the wiring, but what they are saying that they do is change the fuel curve which would not require reprogramming on the BCM and could easily add 8 to 12 horse power. I don;t tink I would pay for one to put on my car though. Email the dude and tell him that you are a member on a large LH website and that if he sends you one for free and it works you maybe able to get him a lot of business.

They don't work, the computer picks it up and adjusts accordingly. Therefore rendering it useless, it's already been tried.

The wierd thing is if you look at the seller's feedback, they're all positive. Either people are really really dumb or this product might actually hit the spot. Despite the matter, this guy is making a TON Of money on plastic and wires, i want IN!

HAHAH ya i'd laugh if someone got alot and thought they would get ...extra power.

I don't know how it could give anything more power, energy has to come from somewhere, you can't create it out of nothing only manipualte it.
