Ebay

So I got a lil bored today and was just leafing through the interwebs and found my way to ebay somehow and I decided, "eh ill type mustang performance into ebay and just see what comes up"

Funniest stuff ive seen in a while, literally every post on the first page was selling chips guaranteeing 150+hp and better gas mileage at the same time. I wonder how often people actually get tricked into buying those things.

Re: Ebay

this girl i know who has a charger was telling me how her boyfriend bought her this "chip thingy", her words not mine, and she said he told her it would make it more powerful and get better gas mileage.

I didn't have the heart to tell her, all it was probably doing was making her run lean, if it was even doing anything.

Re: Ebay

Yah like everything else there's always a bunch of ******** trying to scam you. Even if you're new to modding or just not mechanically inclined, it never hurts to ask whether a certain product is legit or complete crap.
