Default What do you think about this, TPS enhancer?

It also says it elliminates "dead spots", which I've heard some people say is what causes the shaking and hesitation:

To be honest... for that kinda money I rather buy a game and think I drive fast, or even alcohol injection ( for me )... All it does is trick your accelarator pedal so when you push down 20% it'* actually down 50% ( hear say for argument sake ).. so you feel and think the car is peppier.. if you want to take off quicker... stomp on it.... trust me.. our cars will be up over and gone before you can say " Holy R!ce **** batman ". I would spend the money on booze, girls, intake, or new plugs, or save it for a rainny day...

a be duh a be duh...that'* all folks...

Don't spend forty bucks on the IAT enhancer thingy, either. Just stick a resistor across the terminals of the iat pigtail, and trick it into thinking it'* whatever temp you want it to.....for the proper amount of advance. Most people are set up around 60F, that one'* a 3.3k resistor. This may need to be done on a car running water/alcohol injection, as the injection takes place AFTER the IAT.

I"ve heard that with the resistor, it'* not recommended.. however.. I don't see why not as long as the sensor is still in place since it'* just simply tricking the sensor by ( for arguement sake 10Celcius ) so when it'* 30 C outside.. the computer is thinking it'* 20C... but I would still leave that part alone...
