This product smells like another resistor in the IAT sensor gag. All those do is fool the computer in to thinking that the air coming in to the engine is colder than it really is. In turn it dials up the fuel, and in some cases, can be a little more aggressive with the timing. The computer quickly determines that the data it is receiving is off, and then compensates, thus losing the edge you just gained.

You can get the same effect by going to radioshack, picking up a resistor, and running it between the two leads of the IAT sensor. Not sure which resistance you would need, but it would be a lot cheaper.

Cliffnotes: Don't do it. Any improvements from this product will quickly be lost as the computer figures it out.

Also, to blow even more holes in to their scam, I finally found the installation instructions on the website, and it does in fact install on the IAT sensor.

You will also notice that it has cars listed in to the 70'* as compatible vehicles, with the same installation instructions no less, and the same sales pitch. Also, each and every year of every different vehicle has a different part number, and the part numbers are patterned.

Sorry, RJolly87 has officially pooped on this product.

Thank you.
