GF performance chip? Does that make her want to have more sex or something?

You'd be better off buying some real chips. Doritos or Fritos perhaps?

Matter of fact.. if you look it up and you can use the one I have, I will mail it to you for free.

the code on the back is:
106946 - 110615

Don't know if that is the model number or what. But it's there.

Did you replace it with the throttle body spacer for double the power?

I didn't add anything. Was already in the Cheep when I bought it.

Performance chips that promise horsepower AND mpg gain are bullsh*t. If the manufacturer could get you more HP and mileage, they would do it! Think about it, higher power AND better fuel economy? Why would they NOT do it?

When it comes to changes in power and economy with programming you have two basic choices: Better power, lower economy, or better economy, lower power.

On Normaly aspirated yes I agree. On turbo cars (factory at least) no way. I had two volvo turbos (850/S70) that when chipped gained well over 50 whp and that was before the exhaust/intake mods!

Mileage went up, as the torque curve became flatter. The downside? You could no longer use regular or midgrade and had to use premium ALL the time.

To be honest, I can't argue that point on non-naturally aspirated engines. I have never actually dealt with it. You may be right. However the OP did not mention anything about having his truck supercharged. Perhaps I should have been more specific in my post. I would hate to have to use premium fuel all the time though. That's one of the reasons I didn't buy my brother in laws Cadillac...lol.
