Total waste of money, you can spend much less money on this chip and get the same performance increase

Alot of times...if its to good to be true....THEN ITS NOT TRUE!....And i find it very hard to believe that these chips can increase your over all power while at the same time giving you more mpg's....its either or buddy...you cant have the best of both worlds with these engines...

Of course it's not true....
Listen to what the add itself says....
""The G-Force module installs into your FORD RANGER's engine bay and is connected via 2 wires that plug into the IAT sensor.""

Okay, lets pick this apart....
First: The IAT sensor is the Intake Air Temp Sensor. What is it for and what does it do? It checks the ambient temp. of the air that is entering the induction stream for the engine. As we all know, or at least we hope you all know, the cooler the air is, the denser the air is. Thus more fuel is needed to maintain the 14.7:1 stoch air/fuel ratio. The truck's powertrain control module (PCM) reads this temp and adjusts the fuel mixture. (with other info from other sensors of course.)
Now, if you alter the reading from the IAT sensor, you can in fact make the PCM "think" that the air is cooler or warmer than it actually is. By making the PCM think the air is cooler, it will then add more fuel to the mixture. (warmer air and it would add less fuel)
Now, the problem in this is simple.... More fuel does NOT mean more power. More fuel with the properly increased amount of air means more power. When it is all said and done, this and all of it's many, many, clones on Ebay and other predator marker sites, this "Chip" which is actually just a 3-10 cent resistor from radio shack (yes they only cost 3-10 cents), is actually only going to make your poor vehicle run rich, foul plugs, kill O2 sensors and burn more gas.
Now, why do they get so many people giving them praise? well, that is also simple science. Because the people that buy these WANT to see a big difference and in turn do one of two things. Either they Imagine a difference, (sounds funny, but happens A LOT). -OR- they see no change but talk up a big line to support the item to defend feeling stupid or cheated.
Bottom line is...
If ANY bolt on part can give you anything CLOSE to 60hp or 4-7MPG, it will cost A LOT more than $69.00!
Case closed.
