They wouldn't give you 20 bhp, they wouldn't even give you 5 bhp! The resistor brings down the current given off from the the air flow meter to the ECU which controls the fuelling etc., and it opens it up to bring more air through the inlet.

Are they chips or is it a by-pass plug?

In a nutshell this so called "Chip" tricks the E.C.U. into thinking the engine is cold even when its hot, therefore it allows the engine more fuel constantly even when hot.....

For you Dumbass's out there your car senses when it is cold and the E.C.U. pumps a bit more fuel in to allow for the cold running conditions to prevent any hesitations and stalling when cold, the "Chip" tricks the E.C.U. into thinking its cold all of the time therefore more fuel....

Its a Scam, I have fitted many even warning the customers it wont work and they dont make no differance but they have all been removed as in the long term they cause running problems.....

Be Warned !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
