Well, it's not even a chip, it's a 10 cent resistor stuck in a plug. Looks like snake oil from here.... :roll:

Take some time and read the seller's feedback, some interesting comments (if you weed through all the useless "great product, fast shipping" messages.)

This guy is amking a ton of money on this! Look how many he has sold in the last month! Also, if you notice, most of his sales are to fairly new Ebayers.

Boy...even his postive feed back is bad. A vast majority of them say didn't work or something bad but still gave positive resonse.

I think you have to go, first and foremost, to a reliant source for supply-Superchips, Banks, Nissan, etc. for a chip resource. Who the heck makes
chips for the 2005 Titan anyways?

It adds about as much HP as this chip...

It is way over priced and it is a $0.10 resistor packaged in a plastic box but it can work. What it does is tricks the computer into thinking that cold air is coming into the engine 100% of the time thus richening the fuel mixture, advancing the timing, and creating more power (in theory). It disables (bypasses) the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) Sensor and replaces it with a fixed resistance (ie: the resistor) equal to cold air. I did this mod (I use that term loosly) to my 1996 Z28 Camaro and it was great when it was hot outside but when it was really cold I think it hindered power. Never dynoed the car so who knows? But for $0.10 it was worth the try. Cheap mod to test at the track though. Just buy the resistor at Radio Shack or your local electronics store instead. ;)

Just noticed they don't even try and hide the fact it is only a resistor. How funny.

I don't know, calling it a chip is a bit misleading. I know they have a picture of the resistor sticking out of a plug, but the ad copy leads the buyer to believe that they're getting something more than just a resistor.

I totally agree with you. It is VERY misleading! Even I was confused at first glance and I knew what it was.
