So basically you just make the engine run rich? :blink::yawn::ohmy:

I thought you could do this sort of mod for free - just break the o2 sensor!!

u not bought it have ya? just ignore it.few quid for a 20bhp mod yeah right! superchip costs about £200+ that increases about 7-10bhp allegedly.if it does what it says then superchip be out of business! is like a pilot green fuel atomizer thats meant to save you fuel infact is only a magnet that clips on the inlet fuel pipe.how are these people fooled by these i dont know.

back to this 20bhp mod, is just a resistor according to feedbacks oh there is lots of negative feedbacks & lots of neutral ones on these people sellling these!

people sell anything these days.....

Your right, its only a small resistor that you put between the connections of the O2 sensor. Loads of damage can be done. Its an old trick that would work a bit on older mechanical injection cars - like the Capri with Bosch K-Jetronic, but defo not a nice car like ours.

for anyone who might be tempted to try one - LEAVE IT ALONE - IT WILL DAMAGE YOUR CAR AND COST YOU 000'S TO REPAIR - maybe :)

It's actually put on the air intake temperature sensor to make the ECU think it is very cold and therefore nice dense air so it puts in more fuel. The problem though is that Toyota tend to run a bit rich anyway under load and then when it goes 'closed-loop' it uses the O2 sensor for it's mixture settings.
