it wont give you any gain if you haven't already done a fair bit of work to the car.

You wouldn't really see any gain maybe 1-2kw at the most on a dyno. You would need a decent cam and some head work to warrant getting one. But if you are going to do that work, you should get one.

I cant believe on there add " THIS WILL GIVE YOU A POWER GAIN OF APPROX 15 KW AT THE WHEELS" which is absolute s**t unless you have some race spec engine, even then I doubt you would get that sort of gain.

Ask them for a before and after dyno figure showing that, i'm 99% sure they wont give you one.

Its the sort of thing you would get if you chasing every last KW. I would do head work before you bought a throttle body.

These sorts of listings are the ones that need to be reported. Intentially lying in the description to gain more sales.

They'd get some gain if they put all the spark plug leads back on or re-set the timing...
