That'll work for about 10 minutes. You can do the same thing with a 25-cent resistor, but the PCM will figure it out and adjust back for it based on MAF and O2 readings. Your AFR will be re-optimized in a short matter of time.

For individual track runs, maybe. $24.95 for a resistor seems a bit steep for me
This is identical to the Ebay 'performance chips' advertising as high as 22hp.

I've never believed in sensor trickers... It may fit your car, But I wouldn't do it.
