Weird little thing

I brought something off ebay "High performance mod for E series Falcons"
i got it for 10 bucks so i didnt acctualy think it would work...
I put it in this morning and took my car to a quater track...
i got 15 flat without the Mod in which is what im usualy getting...
put the mod in and for 3 passses got 14.6 14. 63 and 14. 7... Much more throttle response and a extra boost around the 4000rpm mark... Now im not to sure what is it that i put in.. It looked like a resistor and it got attached to my act sensor just under the throttle body.... Looks very dodgy hey but anything thats gonna cut .3 of a sec of a quater time is better than nothing...
just wonderin if anyone else has tried anything like that and if its good/bad for motor and what its acctualy doing, ive been hunting around but theres not much info about it, that i can see anyways and it would be good to know what its acctualy doing.
Cheers

Re: Weird little thing

See my thread started yesterday about dodgy mods. Apparently it lasts about a month.

Re: Weird little thing

All it is doing is fooling the ECU to running slightly rich, so you will use more fuel anyway

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
