Looks like another fancy resistor to fool the MAF. I don't think I'd touch it.

Check this section for threads on all the brands..

read what member have asked and been answered...

some seem easy but may not be...


Then check the special PERF 2500 section as there may be more threads on Programmers

Foodog- You want a Hypertech or Diablo for your 8.1. It wadd about 500 rpm to your usable engine range and get you about 0.5 mpg

New AC plugs will do the same for your performance also if they are the originals
