2002 Ford Ranger horsepower chips?

Has anyone tried these "horsepower" chips? They can be found on
E-bay and state that they can improve your hp by 15-20. Just curious
to see if anyone has tried installing them onto a Ranger and if they
actually worked and what problems they had with it. Thanks for all the
help!

Re: 2002 Ford Ranger horsepower chips?

Do people *still* fall for this crap? The "chip" is a $.02 resistor from
Radio Shack that fools the computer into thinking that the air temperature
is -40*. The computer will enrich the mixture, which will then be instantly
corrected by the O2 sensor as soon as the ECU goes into closed loop. Net
result - zero. Best case? Waste of gas and a check engine light.

Don't get the electric supercharger, either.

Um, I don't think that's what he's talking about. I might be wrong, but...
