i think if anybody is stupid enough to buy them, then bad luck, good luck for the people selling them, even i sold a few hundred on there, but then found bigger and better things to sell.

The claim they make is not real so any item that is sold with that claim is fake.

I dont think its fake its just that they are charging people s**t for a 5 cent resistor. All you have to do is add a resistor to fool the ECU that there it is colder air than it should be so it adds more fuel. Falcons run on the richer side as it is.

why pay $30 plus for a 5-10 cent resistor thats the real scam not what it does
