Default Another "MOD CHIP Scam" or not?

Modified IAT???

Is this basically just another 2cent resistor that tries to trick your PCM?

It'* funny the one time I caught a guy in a scam with that junk, told me it was specifically for a 94 chevy truck (mine of course) and told me that the deal plugged plugged into my IAT sensor.....Except an IAT sensor doesn't exist on a 94 chev truck (Trust me, I know, I built the engine and trans) Then I bitched at EBAY and there were about 300 auctions that he had running for different vehicles, weren't there anymore, ebay shut him down.....It was great
