I purchased one of this companys devices to put on my 2009 Kia Rondo. I sent them an email after two weeks of waiting and they then shipped the unit. It arrived in mailer, opened mailer and plastic bag inside was open and contents all over inside of mailer. Installation instructions are on a single piece of paper with printing that requires a magnifying glass to read.
Unit comes with wires attached which are no more than six inches long and these wires are supposed to connect to your existing wiring harness after you determine which two wires on the engine air intake system that you are to use. Of course the wires are too short to reach any part of the wiring harness. They provide a 1 square glue pad and the pad would not stick to anything under the hood and in fact would not stick to anything.
I modified the wires, connected the unit as instructed and used Velcro to attach it under the hood.
There is no method or test you can conduct that will verify if the unit is connected correctly or if the unit is working. The instructions state that you have to drive 100 miles for the unit to learn your car. The warranty for the unit is 14 days from the day they ship it to you. Restocking charge is 25% of value paid plus shipping.
I have checked closely and the unit has in fact decreased my gas mileage and has had absolutely no impact on improving performance. I am ashamed that I got caught in this scam but maybe this note will help someone else avoid the scam.
