Venom 400 anyone tried it yet?

I see there is a venom 400, I hear its nice for low end power, anyone have one of these?
Part #V40-164 $300 with shipping, but I hear they dont work with the sportshift.
I found them at coximports.

Update: directauto.com has it for $269

The Venom400 performance control module is an add on control unit that features it's ownmicro-controller. This module is connected to the throttle position sensor and the Manifoldabsolute pressure sensor, and by monitoring the sensors output characteristics and modifying the input signal to the vehicles existing ECU.

Improving horsepower by as much as 25% through the range of approximately 1,000 - 5,000 RPM. The Venom400 is OBD II compatible. Besides substantial increase of torque, the Venom400 reduces the flat spots or delay timing during sudden accelerations. Incorporated into the Venom400 is an 8-bit micro-controller that is capable of monitoring the various sensor inputs and modifying their outputs at more than 40 times per second.

If you already have another performance prom installed not to worry the venom400 is a mid range performance chip and the prom chip is a wide open throttle application thus complementing each other through the entire RPM band. The Venom400 has an on/off switch so smog certification is possible without detection of unit. Easy installation with basic hand tools requiring only four electrical connections.Loss of gas mileage to be expected is 1-3 miles per gallon in fuel economy. No significant damage or long term stress side effects in long and short range testing.

The venom control module will only simulate wide open throttle (WOT). The only benefit is at low rpm's it tells the ECU to go full throttle. CONCLUSION~ just floor it yourself.. waste of money... get the apexi S-afc if you have a manual..
