well our ebay chip arrived last night.
i pulled out my resistor and spliced in there box with a resistor in it, there system calls for splicing bolth wires of the iat and puting the box with a ressitor in it into the wire relay.
i even used a lil soddering to enshure there would be no excuses for it not working right.
when i test drove it i could only feel a very very minimal difference in first gear, seemed to move a lil faster and rpms seemd to move just a lil faster from 3k to 5500. After that i felt almost no difference at all throught gears when compaed to radio shak resistors. The only reason its still in thair right now is because when we gave it the burnout test it did apear to squeal the tires like piggies a lil longer almost 5 secs.
Funny thing about there resistor is when eletrictaly tested for resistance I CANT GET A READING!!
SEEMS TO ME SUMTHIGN FUNNYS GOING ON.
its got 2 wires coming out each side one red and 1 black and gives directions on how to splice it in.
In there directions they go through how to instal it on maf/iat and map/iat combo systems. now im not a ase mechanic but if you had a manafold absolute presure sensor wouldent that map the fuel better than this because you would then have a light boosted system right? Anyhow if you have a map sensor it says to remove it and just splice this in, real real funny. ANother thing they misspeled tempeture twice and mispeled there own company name once "which i wont mention for the sake of legal issues"
In the end all this chip did was make my car run richer than hell at idle and apeared to want to run between hi ideal and low rich except on full throttle, it made that air/fuel gauge hop around crazy!!!!
For any1 who is considering buying 1 of these chips i suggest you go to wallmart and get your self a dremil rotory kit and port and polish your intake manafold being as that will add sum power hell even bore out the throttlebody. when i bored mine and ported the intake i felt a more signagficant gain than this whole resistor/chip ordeal did!!
1 last thing at the end of there directions sheet it says if you want to post posititve feedback you will recive the same back but if you post negative feedback to expect the same feddback toward you, seems like they saw this coming. Well last night we thought up a new project to add sum real power and compensiate for the robust amount of gas we can shuve in the car.
A leaf blower supercharger sum of you may have seen the dyno tested pull adding upwards of 40hp untuned leaf blower boost @ www.streetfire.net
wallmart is having a big sale on leafblowers were gona go check out the cfm rating of sum of em and see if this might be worth the trouble of riging in throttle cables to it so it can run throttle impedant with the tempo and relocating a knn onto it.
For note its gona be gas powered blower.
