Jesus christ that scared the ---- out of me. I had my speakers turned way up.

No I have not tested them. I would not waist my money on them to test. This would fall into the same category as the electric turbo.

yeah don't do it... they're just one of those stupid things that makes your ecu think its -20degress out and then it puts more gas and advances the timing a little. they're worthless

a friend bought this "kit" just to prove to a bunch of guys on the mr2 board what it was.... he showed a pic of this "kit" it was a resistor taped to a paper saying something to the extent of "wire this between the water sensor and the ecu"

i know in the toyota prformance book/bible it says something about this kinda thing except using a *** so you can "tune" the resistance and increase how rich or lean it is... in theory you could wirse some sort of progressive switch to progress w/ boost... would work... but not ideal

old school tuning. Yea, the toyotas have one for 50 bucks. its a variable resistor and and a/f ratio meter...pretty cool idea...but cheap and fun to make.
