could either mean he has a piggyback computer or a reflash (ie. utec, accessport, ECUtek, . it does help out in the power department if its tuned right

its not harmful to the car unless its tuned wrong. I would guess that one would see 10-20% gain in hp on a conservative tune

Just ask him exactly what was put on the car. To a non car person an AP might sound like a new computer.

Could be a utec, hydra, or some other EM system.
