I think its just bs, performance modules work, but i think this company is just bs. Every other company offers something similar like they said but for them to be able to offer it so cheaply it seems to good to be true. Plus their 20hp gain isn't guaranteed on all vehicles, more then likely thats their biggest gain off of some V8, which usually respond much better to after market parts.

Use your best judgement... there's been tons of posts on "modules and chips" that claims to add ridiculous amount of power @ a cheap cheap price. Everyone will tell you not to believe any claims untill you see prove (dnyo or experience with the product from someone with a celica)

Sigh: if only it was that easy. Then all the money i spent on my car i should be at 8,600 hp.

I have seen one of those 20 hp for 30 buck ads or whatever on a TV infomercial. And for this one, it was a "supercharger" for the Intake(its a spiral shaped piece of metal fan that goes into your Intake piping, thats supposed to spin the air and shoot it into your engine)

Let me point out some key facts i noticed about this tv infomercial. It was a long time ago but if i can remember.

When they dynoed that SUV the first time, it shows the speedometer and the car is doin about 60 i think. Then, they dynoed it again and the hp was up by 20, BUT the speedo shows 80. So thye pretty much didnt reach the top of the powerband in 3rd gear or whatever the first run.

Other thing i thought was the stupidest thing ever is this old lady is talkin and shes like "wow it makes such a performacne difference, after it was put on whoever(son i think) took it out and came back with a police officer and a speeding ticket cause it made it so fast!" It was on some v6 mustang i think it was. I find this stupid cause If youre driving over the speed limit youre driving over the speedlimit, it doesnt matter how much hp your car has.

if you're getting close to 1 hp per dollar, it's fake. it should cost you at least 2.50 per horse. if you want easy horses for cheap, I've got a set of Type-R emblems for you. $100 for 40 horses.

my battery posts are better than any others. i use silver plated alloys and a fatter base module to ensure there is minimal current loss flowing from the battery to the post.

and as always, i also offer 4-gauge wiring kits for the same reason of ensuring that there is virtually no power loss. don't be fooled by kits that offer 12-gauge kits, they simply cannot perform up to the standards than many 'audioheads' desire not to mention provide clean, crisp, undiluted power to any accessory you wish to wire up.
