It IS a resistor. All of those chips are. And it isn't good for much if anything.

What really gets me about this is the packaging! I can't emphasize enough how it really looks like something as compared to other eBay resistors! That is the weirdest idea I've ever seen. And what'* with the $89.95 price tag? It'* not 100, and it'* more than 10 less... I guess it should be just expensive enough to seem to need to work and yet cheap enough to buy.

I figured it out. 2 pairs of wires.

Their two 'claims' are AFR and timing.

One pair goes in between the O2 signal wire and the PCM for AFR modification.
One pair goes to the IAT for slight timing advance (very slight by my testing).

Thanks, WIll! Well, that definitely does not make it worth anything near $89.95 - especially since you have to install it!
