No, all the mugs who say "only $7.50" and buy one just to see what it is.
It probably changes the output from the MAF or MAP. Just a guess. Why doesn't someone buy one and tell us about it!

so how would it work?
would it work on CFi as well as MPFI? for $7.50 if it doesnt work you can throw it away or get your money back, who cares?

Yes, would be nice if they showed a picture and how its hooked up etc.... Sounds like a great idea, but i dont have the money to waste at the moment on things that, without seeing it first and actually believing it works, i wont waste my money. If someone here trys it and it really does work noticably i may consider it!
