Ebay Bhp Chips


Recommended Posts

No wi know im gonna get replys saying "NOOOOO Dont do it" and "There Rubbish"...........

But

Do they do anything at all? cus the science behind seems just. I know its just a resistor but making the ecu think the air is cold therefore making the engine work harder.....

Is it true or totally cow droppings?

maybe even a little increase in BHP?

lol i know, i've been debating asking for ages but my curiosity got the better of me!

I know its not gonna do what it claims but just wanted to know if it did anything, even summat small like the air filter

But if its bad then i'll steer clear

Like has been said its bad for the engine,

Yes it makes your engine think the air is colder. So you think "well my car does feel faster on a cold day"

But on a cold day, the air is colder, and therefore denser and holds more oxygen. So then the intake picks up on that and adds more fuel to match the new amount of Oxygen.

All the chip does is make the ECU think the same thing. thing is, the air isnt actually that cold so it doesnt have as much oxygen, so the car just runs rich instead (too much fuel)

And wouldnt that also be short lived?

I would have thought the pre/post cat o2 sensors would then pick up on being rich mixture - and therefore reduce the amount of fuel back down to normal levels ?

Its all a fine balance with the ECU I suppose....

I think you may be right. You gotta be clever to fool an ECU, not a 50p resistor.

Waste of time and money - go and buy yourself a magazine from the top shelf or a pint - it'll be much more fun :D

Or both :winky:

But what if your a midget and the top shelf is the OK magazine shelf for others! :winky:

ps: i'm not a midget :whistling:

PMSL - I did once see a little person climb the shelf to get to his specialist mags :D They're mega! The people that is - not the mags!

It's Verne on there isn't it? Not seen BB for years!

Weeman off Jackass is funny as, and I once downloaded a film by a guy called Beetlejuice by accident (I thought it was the Michael Keaton film) and that was proper wrong!
