The feedback on this item shows about a 98% approval rate on e-bay, but I'd
like to hear from someone who has tried it.

Thanks

I haven't heard of them and not to say they aren't legit or a good product, but you just never know what your getting on ebay. My recommendation would be to talk to the vendors here first about what your looking for and if they can't convince you to buy from them then hit ebay. One thing if you buy from the vendors here your going to get good customer service if you have any issues. You might not get that on ebay.

just save up for a few more months and get one of the good ones from a vendor. when you have trouble installing or something breaks vendors will go the extra mile for you to help within reason of course.

I've seen those before, and they're just a fancy switch on the fly resistor mod. Bumps up the fuel to your motor basically. Its not actually reprogramming or "fooling" your ECM.
