A seller on Ebay is selling a "chip" called "The Juice Box" for $28 that supposedly gives you more horsepower etc. They appear to make them for all kinds of cars, but they appear to look the same.

 

Has anyone bought one?

 

It looks like a scam to me since it appears to have only 2 wires and does not hook up to the ECU directly, just to the air temp sensor or water temp sensor...something fishy here??

I was reading through all the "positive comments".

 

It must have took them and their friends quite a while to type all the B.S. compliments.

 

Crap like that tries to trick the sensors to make the engine put out more power.

 

It has little or no effect despite what all the "thrilled customers" say.

IF it actually does ANYTHING, it probably alters the MAF sensor readings to trick the computer, which is a band-aid solution at best that usually causes more problems than it's worth.
