    It re maps your fueling tables MAF ect to a
    preset in that is built in to the unit to a leaner fuel mixture. It's a external power programmer

    Ah, i thought it was a generic unit rather than application specific.

    total and complete bullshit. the box probably doesn't even have circuity in it.

    there's no known way to externally control fueling (or timing or anything else) with OBD-II comms in a universal and generic way that would apply to 'any petrol or diesel powered car'. reprogramming fuel tables or dynamic control of fueling just isn't a universal thing.

    if such a thing did work, the technology would be way to valuable to put into a $50 box.

    That’s what i’d presumed.
    Other than it setting DTC’s i couldn’t see how it could alter the pcm code.
    It’s not piggybacking any input either.

    Hmm....

    That's a universal butt dyno recalibrator. Most butt dynos are negatively affected by a heavy wallet so devices like this provide a means to lighten the load.

    check these guys out

    they've somehow figured out a way to get a net energy gain from separating hydrogen from water, which is something that the world's best scientists have been trying to do for years...

    now that we know we can produce energy from water, we can create sustained reactions and power our cities with a lake with zero emissions.
    yet instead of solving the world's energy problems, they're making plastic car add-on kits

    they actually went as far as building a narrowband piggypack fuel controller
