Hi omgwtfbyobbq

I think those % gains are from the tooth fairy.

I saw some other goodies on ebay too , like the electric supercharger you put on your air intake and the +20Hp chip selling for $6 that was actualy just a 5 cent resistor .

Ahh , I love eBay

Nah, the part. I doubt someone would actually manufacture an item this useless... I'm thinking it was part of something that was bought en masse and dissassembled? Then again, given the crap I've seen at dollar stores, maybe it was built specifically to do nothing, which it probably does spectaculary.
