If it'* Jessica Alba, it'd have to be pretty expensive to not be worth it....

total waste of money. its only a resistior that tricks your car, for about 10 minutes, to make it think that the IAT is a colder reading...then the PCM compensates...

It fools your Intake air temp sensor for a bit, then the pcm see'* this as an error and ignores the data rendering it useless. Use that money on a good cai or better yet a fwi.
