    i can't convince him that if it's on ebay and it says it's "not a chip" and "not a scam", then it most definatly is a scam and a rip off.

    Not a smart thing to spend money on.Looks like it probably just fiddles with the air intake temp sensor and attempts to tell the ECU that the intake is getting very cold air.Could get ugly if it works on a very hot day.

    Avoid like the plague. These things just force your ECU to pump more fuel in. You then get all of the associated side effects of overfueling which will eventually kill your engine.
