    Some companies used to sell a resistor that tricked the engine management into feeding in more fuel??

    The only proper way to improve performance is by improving intake/exhaust and remapping. But on a NA petrol engine you're not going to get much improvement without massive outlay. Resistor trickery can damage cats etc.

    Sell it and buy a diesel if you want to get big gains for little outlay, or a big petrol engine if you can afford to run it :-)
