Default Is this for real?

I found this on ebay and i was wondering if it would work. It is an o2 sensor Mod. I have never heard of a mod for an o2 sensor. I was just wondering what you guys think of this.

Ok, reality check. With all my mods so far, I added a Jet Stage 2 chip. I think the chip probably gained me 20-25 hp. That gain in horsepower was from the chip modifying the inputs from the various sensors and adjusting the timing. The O2 sensor is only PART of that. 20hp from an O2 fake out adapter is a joke. MAYBE 5hp, but I doubt that, too. What it WILL do is run your car rich and kill your mileage.

Buy a chip.

If you really want an exciting drive close your eyes while going 100mph.

I think this is a hoax. Wouldnt you end up clogging your cat if you run rich for too long. Also how can it be if you dump more fuel to burn you wont affect your gas mileage. I think this is another scam just like the electric turbos you see on ebay.
