    Although, to be fair, for a tenner, does it matter if it's cr4p?

    But it's a waste of a tenner cos it aint gonna work, well not on a petrol which is what he is claiming. You cant buy a tuning box for a petrol that gives 25bhp so he is talking cr@p . On a diesel I belive you have to buy the right box for the car? Or a least specify the car you have before you buy it. Not any old box will work on any car?
    So would you want to waste a tenner (well - nearer £14)?

    IMO, anyone who would actually fork out for anything like this deserves to lose their money. If you're serious about tuning your car, firstly you wouldn't bother with 25BHP, and secondly you'd be saying exactly what you've just said - that its an impossibility to fit a box to a petrol engine, and that theres no way those dodgy looking wires will actually fit any modern car!

    Joker, hope he gets the ad removed.

    it looks like another sneaky way to sell those cheap "resistors" again, i bet you have to connect it to the air flow meter, total sh*t

    Thats a good point, its not plug and play so you would hack your loom to pieces to install it. That will be a dead giveaway next time your take it to Vx for a service...
