    ha ha i've seen that crap on ebay! I knew someone who tried fitting a hairdryer to his intake and achieved an extra 35 bhp ( that is a vicious lie but if people are dumb enough to try it they are dumb enough to believe it) but he did try nonetheless!!
    those things do sod all! but good advice for people who aren't in the know!!

    if you think of it, an electric turbo,... no way that thing can possibly get more air in the engine than the engine sucks in at full throttle, it only blocks the airflow.

    Just common sence people,....

    Nah mate, mines wicked. If you run an extra belt off the alternator, works like a dream. I gained 10 torques and 20 horses but I think that's because my plugs were spitting

    the cheap ones on ebay are shit end of, the bloke who was saying about making his own one would work but you need to use good quality parts, even if you could get the right parts cheap they would fail so quickly.

    they are shit, end of!

    I believe posting in the correct section, and one that's not 4yrs old may prove more helpful.

    I am a newbie to this forum so should probably keep my mouth shut!
    But.....
    First of all I was surprised by the foul language used by the initial poster.
    Secondly, discussion/questions about 'chips' from 'newbies' is not stupid as many cars are easily chipped to improve performance.

    That is not what this thread was about. 15 years ago when it was posted eBay was full of cheap resistor 'chips' which claimed to increase power.
