Gforce performance chip?

Ser Dan
Customer has a disconnected Gforce performance chip on his air intake. Disconnected it has two wires capped off and looks like it splices with the MAF/MAP sensor wires. What is this thing and what is it for? is it a fail if it is disconnected?

Disconnected or Connected, it is better to FAIL it.

The BAR does not like Performance Chips without a CARB EO number.

The BAR has had a PT Cruiser undercover with a Non-Approved
Innovative Performance Chip wired into the Intake Air Temperature Sensor.

The performance chip sends a False signal (Lower then actual intake Temperature) to the computer,
the computer reacts by providing more fuel at "colder" temps.

Basically more fuel then what is required at warmer intake temps.

If the vehicle appears to be in the original configuration, and the chip is just hanging there, I'd pass it.  

If it's connected, it's fail.  
Why make it simple, when it will work equally as well complicated.

That's pretty much what it does.  Once all of the other sensors come into play, the PCM adjusts the mixture to what it should be.  In other words, it does absolutely nothing to enhance performance.

If it is disconnected I would pass it. It can't raise the "grams per mile" if it isn't connected.
Good judgement comes from experience. And experience? Well that comes from poor judgement.

Fail because he tampered with the MAF/MAP sensor wires by splicing them
