Default Ebay "performance" modules??

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has bought any of the performance modules off ebay, you know, the ones that send better signals to your ECU to adjust fuel/air ratio....for like <$40???. Just wondering also if anyone has found one that adjusts top end speed limiter. That 180km/h just aint cuttin it anymore for me...

thanks for the help

That module isn't much more than a resistor. Way overpriced and loses effectivity after 100 miles or less. Don't waste your money. It adjusts the IAT signal to richen the fuel mixture, but the O2 will let the ECM know how to put it back to how it was.

You won't find a module on eBay that will remove the limiter.

The best advice is to go to Intense-racing.com.

By far and away better than anywhere else.

That stuff on ebay doesn't work. Don't waste the money.

By the way the Tornado thing doesn't work either.

General rule of thumb "If it seems to good to be true it probably is".
