The only performance gain you should expect would be the result of a lighter wallet.

It a resistor that fools the computer into thinking there's cooler air coming into the throttle body so more fuel is added and the timing is advanced. Problem = it does it all the time, even when you sitting at a traffic light so more fuel is being used ALL the time. Gain = maybe 1 - 2 hp "maybe". It also makes the "check engine" light come on.

I guess if you are going to lie you should lie really big. Sad that people fall for it.

Don't feel stupid. A lot of people fall for that and then try to unload them on ebay. Last I heard was that Mopar discontinued stage 1. There are ways around that, though.

How are they lying? The add says "Up to 50 HP Gain", 1/10 of 1 HP falls withing the range of what was advertised. The problem is that people see the 50 and never think about the 1/10 possibility.
