Don't do it!!!! This is only a resistor that 'tricks' the mass airflow sensor to send more fuel to the engine. After a while, the computer figures out what is happening and sets off a 'check engine' light. The performance then goes back to original or worse. Some people that have done this mod have actually had to replace their MAF sensor afterward -- very expensive!

By the way, you can probably buy the same type of resistor at Radio Shack for $0.49.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

This holds true for all those BS magical additives for every fluid in the vehicle.

Unless the chip is made by one of the big performance chip makers, I would stay away from it. I highly doubt the big companies will make a performance chip for this vehicle.
