rule of thumb: if it sounds too good to be true, then it is. after looking at the website this looks just like any other ebay crap you see with those sort of claims.

I'd get 4, make an extra 200hp, wire them in series, and laugh at all the guys going turbo.

looks like a quality piece - those are some HIGH END butt connectors. Very slick

I put 10 on my Z but I haven't gone WOT yet. I've heard that if I did, I could go back in time.

You are unbelievable. A thread was locked and answered that you made and you are still asking about this? You claim you can smoke other Z's in another thread, yet you have to ask whether one of these scam "chips" really work.
