resistor?

So back when I had my nitrous GSR (was about 18, 25 now) A friend hooked me with a resistor and we put it into one of the sensors and supposedly it boosts power, but it made it run real cold, and I noticed no significant power increase so I pulled it and never really gave it a chance. Does anyone have any knowledge of these things? Hollar

Re: resistor?

So what exactly does said resitor do?

All I can see it doing is being a band-aid solution. By tricking one (or more) sensors, the ECU compensates by changing the ignition and/or fuel maps, thus altering the way the car runs. But unless you have the time to carry out trial/error testing, you can't actually access how much the maps are changed.

Just get a piggyback ECU and a tune.
