what happens if you use a smaller resister on the 5k deal

can you hurt your electronics? has any body tried different sizes? or just used a wire to jump in stead of a resister?

The ICP sensor. The resistor mods cause internal leakage in the ICP faster than you can blink..........& ICP sensors are not cheap either!

Using any resistor mod is hard on the ICP plug, it spreads the contacts out. You can use different resistance ratings, the lower the resistance the more power/smoke/lope you'll get. I had a 1K on mine for a few minutes and it loped so bad it almost wouldn't stay running at idle. If you just straight jumped it it would wouldn't run.

Sure I can, Jake, I'd be glad to!....I had a Banks Six-Gun, remember? That's basically a $400 resistor mod() that plugs right into the ICP sensor.......& has a digital display that tells you when/how fast your ICP sensor's getting fried.

Yeah i remember you had banks junk. I doubt that had anything to do with a failed ICP sensor. All the mod does is change the voltage.

I beg to differ. The ICP mod is great for poor people such as yourself(j/k). But seriously, people swear by the 10k, 5.6k, etc. mod like it's life altering. In reality, it's like giving your truck a shot of crack/coccaine. It probably feels good @ 1st, but after awhile it just tears up your ICP sensor. After the Six-Gun & reading other people's ICP resistor mod horror stories, I've stayed as far away from them as possible.
