You have a link? Sounds like junk, just from your description

I agree, and because there are no pics of it I would be scared of what I was getting for $75

I dont think you even need that with out a chip. I was never able to get mine to defuel before the chip. I am not sure if pulling the red line gets you that much more either.
But you will need it when you get a chip.

The DIY fooler is hard to get set but once it is set it will help a lot.
