assuming this is a bad idea...?

I believe in you get what you pay for. I also have a hard time trusting anything that is not factory. I was wondering what others thought about this item. He has a lot of positive feedback citing increased horsepower. I doubt I would ever do such a mod, but want to know others thoughts.

"The module will work with the sensor to provide a new signal to your vehicles computer, or ECU"
