Question Garbage?

This thing showed up at my front step today.
Saab 9-3 Performance Chips - Saab 9-3 Tuning

i was wondering weather it is fake or weather it actually works?
Does any one else have one of these things?

The HP graph is garbage....
I would recommend you not let that thing anywhere near your car.

Should you chose to ignore this advice, though, your best bet would be to buy another one, wire them in series, and get a 100hp gain!!

Make sure you got the right one. Not sure what would happen if you hooked up the one made for the 10 cylinder Saab.

Haha, 70 bucks for that? I would not put that in my car, ever. It will not work, plain and simple.

i believe it changes the MAF reading in order to trick the ECU there is more air and dump more fuel. In theory it should work if you can install and set everything up right, however you can also knock like a mofo.

So, I offer to tune your SAAB and this is the end result?
*facepalm*

Edit: The moment you hook that up to your ecu *cough*HackUpYourMafWires*cough* T7 is going to throw a conniption fit.

They also have one for my 10 cylinder Taurus, with double the HP over stock?
