    I'm going to say this is what they call a "Snake Oil" product. a single chip giving 300 hp and better mpg and off the line. It's probably like all the other chips the say they'll give you this and you never see it.

    In my nice opinion i'd say "its probably not going to work, so just dont get it"

    But the other part of me is like...are you kidding. The companies like superchips want 300+ bucks for their tunes do you really think a 30 dollar thing off ebay is going to do ANYTHING?

    i read some of the feedback on the product. some noticed a diffrence but some didnt. not 300+ hp by any means, but if i could get 2-4 more MPG then i'd be happy. I don't make a lot of money so i cant afford the expensive chips. Is there and Cheap solutions? What about the Intake vortex fan?

    all this "chips" are is a resistor that plugs into your air intake sensor and tells the computer that its getting cold air all the time these are 5 cent resistors at radio NOT WASTE your money lol

    A handheld tuner will only net you 2mpg at the most especially on a gas engine, not tworth the time or to even look at there web site. Just do what you can that is free. Keep your tires properly inflated, a working thermostat that is OEM, and when accelerating keep your RPM under 2000.
