    This will be my next upgrade, well besides another one that is going to take 3 months to get to me.

    I would like to know your thoughts on these and also share my promo code "azusa"

    This will save 10% off your purchase over at PlasmaProjects.com

    Wow... I want these for my Gen 2 soon as I saw your post... But more than $700 for a set sounds a bit crazy/untenable? Maybe some other company will see an opportunity and will sell same thing for way cheaper? Until then you'd need to run your engine at extreme RPMs to justify this kind investment.

    Those "Analysis by Oscilloscope" drawings -- not actual screenshots -- look a bit contradictory.

    I only know of one person in the forum that actually has these and that is @RightOnTime

    Maybe he can give some input on his experience with them.

    There might be one or maybe two others but no one has posted about them other than the guy I mention.

    I will update this thread when I get mine.

    I know it will add to the upgrades I have already done and will be doing.

    They didn’t put any units on the axes of those graphs. How the heck does anyone know what they mean?

    I mean I do believe injecting Lysol into your body will kill coronavirus, along with forcing family to deal with your funeral…

    You don't REALLY believe that marketing scam BS, do you ?

    If so, I have some nice ocean front property for sale in Arizona.

    There is one born every minute.

    You aren't understanding the comments, apparently.
    It will add ****NOTHING**** useful to your car. Nothing.

    Oh...it is so hard to understand all the childrens meme's.

    I guess most are stuck in their ways, where the only products to use are OEM or else.

    Maybe there should only be on place to eat burgers and one place to get gas??

    Dont want to give other users choices now.
    That might confuse the heck out of some of you.

    You will end up driving in circles...

    How do you even make choices in life with so many options to choose from???

    Don't forget that, as an 'influencer', he is on the marketing side of this food chain.

    There was one of these doodads, the Smart Pedal, that struck me the same way at first look, but turned out to have perfectly coherent patents on file explaining in clear technical terms the technique and benefit of what it actually does.

    That made it kind of the exception that proves the rule, though; I looked over this thing's web site pretty carefully and didn't find anything like that, which is more the way it usually goes.

    My favorite product hawked on PriusChat was still the throttle-body grounding kit, some wires that would improve your throttle response by giving a better connection to ground for the throttle motor and sensor. You were supposed to attach them to a part of the throttle body that's plastic and wouldn't conduct between the new wires and the motor and sensor anyway. :D

    Aren't we still waiting for some particular independent test of this Smart Pedal, already in progress when it last came up?

    P.S. Yes, from this post:

    I will update that thread when I change the setting to another mode, been using it in the setting it came in since I got it.

    So far great fuel savings in mode 3
    Smart Pedal is no joke and works.

    I don't know what that means, but maybe Bryant Kong should set it to music.

    Thats a little rude but what do we expect from a spade.

    You either want it or not, no need to shoot the messenger with a deal for you...

    Perhaps you might wish to retract your very racist insult?

    No....not true at all, since he is sam spade.

    Also it makes you a racist because you actually are adopting the term as such, when it isnt, it is meant to be like "it is what it is" and so sam spade was and is..

    @fuzzy1 thanks but maybe you should find something else to troll about.

    The messenger bears false good tidings.

    YOU need to work on recognizing "snake oil" marketing lies.

    This is a classic. So are the claims for 3 electrode spark plugs and devices that put "magnetism" into your fuel and little fans that "stir" the air as it goes into your engine.....on and on.

    Helping the thieves promote their scams is much WORSE than rude.
