I know everybody has to start somewhere, but BUNG-A-LOO-BOB has 0 (Zero) feedback. Be careful.

Supposedly this "adjustable" thing does the same as the $3.99 resister whereas it tricks the IAT into thinking the intake air is colder than it really is so the computer throws more fuel into the mixture.

Always remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for." Do not go into a scam, sure they've got a warranty and guarantee their product and replace it if it gets broken, but when something breaks in your engine, they won't pay squat.

Like what's been already said I'd be
careful with a zero score on ebay and
yes he is new etc....he does have paypal
tho....I'd take the insurance for sure
on that thing....I'm not a car tech guy
but I wouldn't go that route without some
background on the item and the company......

It appears to me that this device is a reostat varible resistor. It would fool the computer to feed more fuel to the injectors. It is a better idea than the inline resistor that another person was selling on ebay. Interesting concept.......

In all actuallity, for those that do not know...a Jet performance chip or other such products are basically just a bunch of resistors that affect the signal from the Intake Air Temp, Coolant Temp, Ambient/Battery Temp, Throttle Position, MAP and one or two more sensors, and all that basically does is tell the computer to dump more fuel and adjust timing. Only they do it in more of a professional manner. And people pay $300+ all the time. I'd rather put the $300 into a 3 inch exhaust, Adam's charge pipe or a carbon fiber hood.

I just received my muffler today, and cant wait to get it installed tomorrow. But the only thing is is that its a 45 minute drive and a 50 buck install.
