    Its a resister in a posh box that fools the car into thinking the outside temp is lower than it is. In turn over fuling. Sod that mate! HP fuel pump will have extra work to do and then the sensors all over the engine will read different things.
    My advice would be to leave it because the extra power is not realistic or worth the problems in the long run.

    Just Buy a GSi Cheap enough these days
