Ejection control transponder. make sure your seat is in the full upright position when driving with it on. Do a search, there are seveeral writeups about how it works.

HAHAHA..now thats funny.

Ive found that having ECT on drives better (im on 33's) in general, esp starting from stand still. Maaybe a slightly better MPG, but not much. Its just not as sluggish with it on.
