Default What about an ECU resistor ?

I saw this on Ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...908565981&rd=1

Will this harm the PT? Is it worth it?
Thanks,
Jeremy Bays

Harm...don't think so. What it does is trick the ECU to think that it's seeing cooler air than its actually seeing, therefore sending more gas to compensate....more gas, more power. Although it won't be a seat-of-the-pants kind of surge in power, it could be a couple of horses. Down side is that your MPG will go down a couple of miles per gallon.

I saw the same thing, only sold by a different seller for only 5 bucks, and I bought it, thinking that it cant hurt the car and even if it doesnt work it was still only 5 bucks. I didnt see anything wrong with buying it. I havent yet received it though

AND, if you're in a state like mine that tests emissions, you may not pass ...

Don, this chip/fuse thing is so easy to put in it only takes about 20 seconds. You just unhook the connector that's attached to the air sensor that's located in the air tube leading to the throttle body and put the chip/fuse into the end of it. Can be put back to OEM specs in the same 20 seconds right before any kind of testing.
