Has anyone ever heard anything about this item?
Is it complete BS or does it actually do what it says it will do?

THEY ARE JUNK!!!


They will break and lock the engine up. Then about $5000.00 later you will be running again.

Did you make a seperate post for that?

Have you cleaned the throttle body?

Yes I posted a thread called "Hesitation @ 40"
No I didn't cleant the throttle body. This car has only 17K miles on it. My last one had almost 70K and I never had this hesitation and low-gear rumbling in 4th.

It could be many things. I would still start with cleaning the throttle body.
They can get Gummed up within 20,000 miles.
