Angry redline performance chips!!!!!

beware of this company!!!

they are selling a 25 cent resistor encased in a plastic module as a "performance chip" this so called chip sends phoney air temperatures to the engines computer, which seriously leans out the engine when temp outside is higher than 85 degrees.

and in conditions colder than 60 degrees richens up the engine to the point of causing cylinder wash. over 5000 unsuspecting buyers have purchased these "chips" on e-bay,

I was one of them,

Ive seen these all to often.. Comes back to, "You get what you pay for". You can make those all-day long for under 2.00 at radio shack and they eventually do more harm then good....

add another scam to the list

found another one pulling the same scam!!! It`s called " THE JUICEBOX " exactly the same piece as redline with a different sticker, only this one boasts 30 hp, had to order it just for laughs, thankfully i got my money back through paypal

Hey Ya'll,

Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I saw those things on Ebay, and was attracted to the Fuel Economy improvement, but thought it looked way to good to be true.

Later,

OMG... Is ebay this much?? Superchips might also be a similar flop as "The Jukebox" and "The performance Chip"...check it out the technical details before purchasing. Also feed backs about this from other forum members would be a great input for you to go ahead.
