I think my car can get a good 22hp kick from this! What do you think?

I figured I'd mess with his mind a little:

The claims you make for selling your IAT modification are false and misleading beyond mere negligence. 15-22hp is NOT attainable with this modification and it has the potential of making the engine run lean and cause catastrohpic failure. If you do not remove the claims made about horsepower gains, potential for damage, and its effectiveness as compared to Jet and other performance chips I WILL report this as false advertisement and fraud.

You might gain 5hp for about 5 minutes, until your PCM figures out from the MAF and O2 inputs that something is wrong and re-adjusts.

This is a potentiometer. Also know as a 3 dollar variable resistor. DON'T fall for this, and DON'T buy. In fact, laugh out loud at anyone who does, except here on this forum.

Many REAL aftermarket chips don't even produce 22hp. This is a fraud.

That'* the one that really hurts. My WTF sensor has been running mighty lean lately, too. Any leaner and I'm going to get some detonation.
