BS - If it really gives 15% HP increase = 30+ extra hp, for $300? Not in any of our wildest dreams. Scam to get you to waste money.

I've done some research on these, all they do is fool your ecu to think that the air going into your engine is cooler than it really is, thus adjusting your fuel:air ratio.
