Just seen on Ebay a Loyale performance chip do these things really work and boost the horse power like they claim or are they a boogus item that doesn't do what they claim.

from what i understand, its supposed to make your car run like its cold all the time, they usually plug into your temp sensor and create a signal that makes the car "seem" cold.

hope that made some sense
i know theres others out there but the cheapies usually just hijack/alter the signal.. your just tricking your computer..

not to mention kill your fuel milage.

chances are this "chip" is just a resistor you can buy at radio shack (10 in a pack for $1.99, iirc) thats just marked up to profit from the not-so-car-savvy.
