It's nothing more than a resistor to fool the computer into thinking cooler air is coming into the throttle body. It attaches to the IAT in the intake. More fuel is added to the mixture .....all the time, even when your sitting at idle. You can stick one in almost every car out there. They used to be about $5 but now they're packaging them so they look high-tech and charging more.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
