No. If it sounds too good to be true IT IS!!! It is simply a resistor... If it gave you an extra 75 horse and 30 mpg, every single one of us would have one...

I don't think that it is worth it honestly... Vehicles didn't have the same kind of fuel management that they do now. I don't know if a real tuner would do you much good. Your best bet for real power is either a SC or some sort of forced induction setup

Oh yes, HID is considerably better than most other options out there for headlights

HIDs are considered illegal correct unless they come equipped with the vehicle? I have the 35W 6000k cuz i didnt wanna take a chance of the brighter lights getting me pulled over. I was gonna get the.......50 or 55W bulb but the guy advised the 35W for on road use.

Correct, HIDs are illegal unless they came stock. But for all intensive purposes, any bulb that is in your headlight housing that is not OEM is considered not legal. You made a good choice going with 35w. 55w, especially just dropped into a stock housing is too bright for daily driving. Oncoming traffic will loathe you

I do average off-roading and i was wondering if i could buy a pair of 55W 6000K bulbs to switch out when i go off-road for more illuminating and then switch the 35's back in when back on the road? Between using each would it be okay to switch the bulbs without changing anything in the HID boxes? Or do i need higher wattage in order to run the 55W's?

Good info on the chip, what chip is actually worth spending the money on? I have a 2013 2.7 4.0L and would like a little more beef to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
