The =POWER=WIRE=> Is a PLUG & PLAY mod that will give you 8-10HP with less than 1 minute to install. Advancing the timing for increased HP is an old trick that has been used for many years. With the newer computer controlled vehicles there are no distributors to adjust, so to gain additional timing advance we need to alter the signal from the air temperature sensor for the desired advance. Your PCM uses the Air Temperature sensors to help control timing and Air/Fuel ratio.

Your O2 sensors keep your Air Fuel ratio nailed to 14.75:1 at all throttle positions except Wide Open Throttle (WOT) so the POWER WIRE can NOT cause you to run rich during normal driving because no matter what the AFR will be 14.75:1. For this reason The Power Wire has been reported to add 1-2MPG increase when driven lightly. But at WOT the Power Wire will add approximately 2.5 percent at WOT. When your at WOT you are more concerned with HP than MPG at that moment in time and while passing an additional 8-10RWHP is exactly what your looking for.


The POWER WIRE should not be confused with the "E-bay Mystery Mods" that just claim to give you HP without any explanation as to how that particular mod works... But we try to equip you with the information you need to make the best decision for your performance quest.
When installed the POWER WIRE alters the signal to your PCM making it think the intake air temperature is 20 degrees cooler than the actual temperature at "ALL TIMES". This timing advance is worth approximately 8-10RWHP

The POWER WIRE has been reported to richen the AFR by one full point at WOT, this is good if you have long tube headers and other mods that tend to lean out your AFR at WOT. Installing the POWER WIRE can help cure this lean condition.

On our G-Tech Pro Comp meter it showed a 10HP increase on a 2003 4.7L.

If you need to take it in for service, it takes just 10 seconds to return it back to stock with no evidence of this mod ever being installed!



This is a "PLUG & PLAY" MOD... We have done all the work for you! Gain 8-10HP and 1-2MPG in less than 1 minute, no wires to cut, no tools needed, will not harm your PCM!!! What more could you ask for?

How do you know which Power Wire to get 12 or 24 inch? I might give it a try.

This modification, no matter what they say, will not work for long. Engine computers are designed to adapt. They need to adapt to different sensor types and conditions. They will adapt this 'power wire' out of the system in just a few miles leaving you with zero power gain and an improper IAT reading. Don't waste your money.

i think it will increase power the entire time, because you are moving the sensor to a colder location, and since the air is colder it's denser which needs more fuel to burn at a 14.7 Air:Fuel, i know the computer learns, but if that's true then a plug in chip wouldn't do anything either, i mean the dyno results are their and i believe it, i asked my auto teacher about it, and he doesn't see why it wouldn't work, that's why im interested in it
