Drop in a 3SGTE from a GT4 Celica into your Camry, it will make the power your desire!

ORIGINAL: Epsilon

Those don't work. It's not really a chip, but just a resistor that you put in parallel with the intake air temp sensor to 'fool' your ecu into thinking the intake air temp is colder than it really is to run a little richer/more gas. The o2 sensors output probably offsets a significantly richer mixture, making the 'mod' of limited merit, since they are not wideband.
I think I may have discovered a use for one of these little suckers! I was reading more about short ram intakes and came across this:
Turbulence in the intake airflow produced by the filter or piping, or a change in intake diameter at the point where the airflow is measured can produce inaccurate airflow readings. The error in airflow then translates to an error in the amount of added fuel. In the worst case, the air/fuel ratio can run lean, causing detonation and possibly engine failure although the airflow sensor will generally detect and correct the throttle to compensate for the warmer air. This can also be solved by modifying/elongating the intake piping, replacing the airflow meter, or by replacing/remapping the engine control computer to provide the correct amount of fuel for the intake airflow at all engine speeds.
So, if a short ram intake may make your gas run lean, and this chip may make your gas run rich, then its a good solution for overcoming the deficit caused by a short ram intake. Touche!

Hahahahahah wow I knew I felt a reason to pick up that thing! Now if only I listened to my gut instead of the seller's feedback! Oh well, I'll figure it out. Nice one though I didnt expect that!

Hey i was bein serious,I really wish I had known that! I would guess that lean+rich=avg, and if you consider the added hp you get from the intake and possibly the chip.. damn! that'd be sweet!

dont forget that TB spacer and also a good exhaust system (and a hood scoop if you really want to go there!)

oh yea Im definitely goin there with a hood scoop. I figure I can get one of the fake fender scoops from advance or someplace for $15, mount it to my hood above the intake cone, and cut a hole in the hood itself to let the air thru. (If I can manage to get another hood from the junkyard) And people pay so much for the same effect
