    I've seen them and never heard/seen/read anything positive about them. Due to the explorer weight, It wouldn't be a good choice.

    I bought one too, have'nt put it in yet. It makes the engine run richer, that's it.

    It's a cheap "mod" that you plug into your intake air temperature sensor harness. It tricks the computer into thinking the air is colder (?) so that it runs richer and "more powerful." It's basically the same thing as the newer mods on eBay that are now a larger plastic casing that you plug into the IAT harness.

    DON'T BE FOOLED!

    Runnin' constantly rich will cause ill effects to the emissions system.

    Those "superchargers" are based on nothing more than bilge fans for boats. What a joke. Don't be a sucker.
