Does this crap work? (performance chip)

Has anyone tried or experienced a car with this chip installed. It is extrememly cheap which gets me, but then again the seller has gotten like lots of good reviews.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...79154&rd=1#faq

Tell me what u think. Would making ur car think it is receiving higher temperature air affect the reliability in teh long run? I woudl hate my car to get f***ed up because of a 2 dollar piece of crap.

read the whole thing...

" Q: What is this Device?
A: It is a static carbon resistor that gives out a constant reading of outside air temperature reading to your ECU."


and hit that into ebay and you see what he sells...

heres 300 of those for 1 dollar.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW



tell me hes not making a killing


and on top of that hes a dumbass for saying that a carbon resistor gives out a reading... he should at least goto school.. or do a google search on what a carbon resistor does.. all it does is RESISTS A LOAD... sigh. when will these ebay retards learn.

there was a guy who put resistor into AIT circuit and dynoed his car before and after. result was no difference at all.

Try it and let us know, but don't go a kill the guy when it frys your ECU or something. I wouldn't trust anything like that....it's cheap for a reason.

Agreed. That is why I stick with Comptech, if they dont sell it, i dont buy it. Performance chips, spark plugs, etc., dont mess around with those. They negate warrenty, and eventually cause your car to experience premature tranny problems. It might be pricey, but there is no better bang for your buck when it comes to performance AND quality.

Comptech, can't be beat...

Watch out on eBay for scams (like so), they're just trying to catch the last few that aren't so eBay smart out there.

Looking for a performance chip? Search around the forum for threads on the UNICHIP. Help support our vendors as well as V6P.net.

^exactly. From what ive heard from anyone that's put in in their ride, it's good stuff. I've driven in a 6th gen with an AEM V2, hammerbeck mufflers, and the Uni-Chip...OMG what a ride. best bang for the buck the Uni-Chip is the way to go, IMO.

you really are pushing comptech, aren't you? what proof is there that they are significantly better than other performance parts companies? sure they release a nice supercharger here or there, but its not even close to something like an hks supercharger. or do you just buy them because you're another fanboy that thinks because he buys comptech his car will magically be perfection on wheels?

bang for your buck? how is $120 for a sway bar or $1000 for a catback exhaust bang for your buck?

Word. My TL sway rules up a Comptech bar that is the same, but half price.

Do they make a unichip for the 4bangers, i dont have any mods either, its just stock (except for TL sway). Anyways, i went to teh v6performance shop and they didnt have a unichip for the 4 bangers.
They cost a pretty penny as well, no doubt. I am pressed for money in that case.
Well i will definately consider it. I know stuff from V6p is not sh*t.

Because it won't negate any warrenty, and the exhaust is made of a very high quality stainless steel, which means it won't rust, it will last pretty much forever, it has GREAT resale value, oh and did I mention great power gains as well? (the dynograph on the comptech website speaks for itself.) Add to the fact that EVERYTHING comptech sells in C.A.R.B. Approved, including their superchargers!

Safe, reliable, and backed up by Comptech's quality, It simply cannot be beat. And your right, my car is TRULY is a magical perfection on wheels.

not true. it'll negate a warranty the same as any other exhaust system.

... why, again? don't say because of the name, cuz that's just plain not true, or because of the quality, because comptech's quality isn't that much better than borla, who SPECIALIZES in exhaust and costs 400 dollars less

a comptech exhaust system is just steel piping, mufflers, and resonators just like every other exhaust. the power gains it makes are not gonna be worth the extra price. there are PLENTY of other companies that are completely CARB approved.
you still haven't explained why you're such a fanboy.
