    Question Performance & Economy Chips

    I see lots of inexpensive "miracle products" listed on E-Bay that promise to add up to 25-50 horsepower and 35+ ft/lbs of torque, and an increase in fuel mileage by 25% or more. All for the low cost of $20!

    Has anyone tried any of these products? Is their any truth to their claims? Do they work for more than a couple of months?

    Thanks for the replies!

    Welcome to the Club! Snake oil by any name is still snake oil. Sound like it is chance for you to poke around the site and get some more answers.

    Welcome to the club. And for the most part, it's all garbage. Very few things will function to improve HP and torque, and the ones that do are very well known. Even those that DO improve things, often do so at rates far less than the advertised "up to XXX HP Gains!" See that "up to" they toss in there? It protects them when the actual value is only 5% of the advertised. LOL

    If you have a specific item you're looking at and would like opinions, please let us know. If there's something we're good at it's opinions.
