All the guy is selling on ebay is a resistor that you plug into the connector that connects to your IAT sensor (intake air temperature). The IAT sensor is a electronic devise that changes resistances with different temperatures. The colder the temperature the higher the resistance value. You could go to Radio Shack and buy a resisot of the right value to do the same thing. A 33k resistor would tell the computer its about 30 degrees out. This would give about a 2 degree timing advance and more fuel from the injectors, hence the power increase. Hope this helps, personally I wouldn't purchase the item shown.

I bought one for 2.00. The top end had no change seemed to have much better below 2500 rps. Also, the air temp is always changing. If it is wired in to the "return" wire to the ecu it will allow for temp. changed. They show it wired direct to the plug. Bad idea. It will work really good or really bad depending on the temp. When I installed it I had the motor off and the key on. With a test light I found the "hot" wire in the iat and wired it inline with the "cold". Works great. Pings a little in really hot weather with reg gas.
