Has anyone bought one of those "performance chips" off ebay? them say that it increases hp by like 15-30 and 40 ft of torque. Just wondering if they work, or are they a waste of $$.

All those ebay junk things are is a $0.25 resistor that goes in place of the IAT to trick the ECU into into thinking the air temp is lower than it really is.. You could risk detonation, fouled plugs and pig rich smelling exhaust.. I remember all the hype when those started being sold on ebay back in the 90's.. I was pretty big into the F-body cars back then and we tried everything.. TunerCat ended up being our best friends back then. It was like a dream come true being able to modify every parameter or everything :D
