i have a question for you about these performance modules and chips, they say you can gain upwards of 20 hp and torque by plugging in a resistor. you put this in you air/fuel temp sensor plug and bam 20 horses. now does this really work and if so what size is the resistor b/c they want like 20 bucks for somthing i can get at radioshack for 99 cents. i could try it and if it doest do anything im only out like a buck. so if anyone knows what im talkin about id really like some answers

dont even concider those chips. if they do fit in your car. then they just mess with the fuel to air ratio. Most of them make your engine run really lean and that is HORRIBLE for your car. They destroy your car. Its not worth it. Cheap performance... that dosent really exist. If you want some performance gains you should concider buying performance parts before you tune your engine. Your engine is allready tuned for its setup.

Trust me, you wont see any power... That was a myth a long time ago, and some people have been making money off of it... Use google and search on the topic, you should find the same article that I am talking about..
