    Has anyone here used one of these that are pop up ads here? I know that the one's for the Scion's that were on those sites would work for a couple of weeks and the go back to the stock tune because the EMS would go back to the factory tune.

    You buy one, it lightens your wallet. Makes you faster due to the lightened wallet & placebo effect. :wink:

    There are some real proven power adders for the R53. :yesnod:

    Here are mine:
    15% pulley :D :D :D
    Cold air intake :D
    Free flow exhaust :D

    Disclaimer:

    There more things you can do, but for me these have been rock solid with zero problems.
