Newrockies VATS bypass

Has anybody used this unit?
How much of a PITA is it to install?
The owner talks a pretty good game on his website and guarentees results with this thing.That being said, this unit is pretty pricey.I'm not a fan of doing a job 2 or 3 times.Is this thing for real??

No way I'd ever pay $180 + shipping from Canada to bypass VATS when 95 times out of 100 a $1 resistor will fix the issue!

There are several other systems besides the resistor available on the web and/or ebay for closer to $50 that many folks here have used and had success with. $180 is way too much!

Only downside to the Resistor method, s that the VATS module has to still work. But if it dies? $20 will fix that.

What I posted? No. I completely bypasses the entire VATS module & no chipped key or resistor is needed anymore.
