chip
I've got some chip (brought from ebay)that fits to the air Intake sensor and adjusts the readings it sends to the ecu and is supposed to give about 10 bhp more has anyone fitted one and if so how?

that is a chip that fits an IAT (incoming air temperature) sensor, and tells the computer simply that the incoming air is colder than it really is. Colder air = Denser air, more air = more gas being put into the engine = more power...HOWEVER...our cars do not have an IAT sensor, we have a MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor) which tells the computer not what temperature the air coming into the engine is, but exactly how much...all in all my friend, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you bought junk that cannot be used on your car, and even if you could, you aren't going to get 10 hp from it...sorry thumbsdown cry...also, beware of gadgets that claim to advance the computers timing...on our cars the comuter timing cannot be advanced. This is one of the main reasons I stay away from ebay...
