Has anyone tried these chips ??
Auto Chips Direct
Yes, I purchased a Auto Chips Direct and they do not work. Read elsewhere to find this out for yourself. Stay away from this product. You cannot purchase a $60 piece of performance equipment and expect it to work. Save your money until you can afford the real deal.

Here is one thats the same thing except different sticker..
(Copy/Paste from another forum where i posted it up)
Guy talked my buddy into buying one these things off ebay.
So he buys it and puts it on. I get a text message yesterday and he says his truck wont idle good.
So he rides down and hooked my laptop to it.
He tells me about this lil contraption so i took it off and truck still dont wanna idle right.
Got my meter out and tested it, haha yea, talk about a rip. $30 down the drain.
Opened it up and this is what i find.
Its a a 16 pin Dip. 39K ohms Resistor. Wires soldered to pins 1 and 16. cant find a value for what it should be. kinda curious as to what his rip off is suppose to read and trick the PCM into what IAT reading.
i tried testing it and it read 35 ohms one time but couldnt get a reading again.
So basically $30 got him a cool lil black box with 2 wires, and a DIP resistor in epoxy with awesome sticker..
2 minutes of looking online and what do ya know!!!!
