Has anyone seen or used one of these?



(cut and paste) ""HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is a 20mhz microcontroller connected to the OBDII diagnostic port under the dashboard, present in most cars from 1996. It then communicates with the ECU (Engine Management Computer). The chip will "lend" the ECU 8 new highly-efficient MAPs whilst it is connected to the OBDII port. It can easily be disconnected and the ECU will revert to the standard programming codes. This is know as "piggy-backing". It is not a permanent re-write of the software. It will not void your manufacturer's warranty nor will it create any problems with the engine management or emissions or MOT.""

On fleabay! My car already has a Jabba map, so not for me............ but was just curious. (looks better than a resistor on the IAT lol) For anyone on a tight budget - £70 odd
