Chips (not the potato kind)

Does anyone have any experience with plugging in chips designed to increase hp and gas mileage? I'm currently looking at something from autochipsdirect.com. Do these things actually work? Is there a trade-off or downside to doing this? What about reworking the air intake? Is this advisable with the chip. We have a yearly vehicle inspection - will this be a problem? We're talking 2007 Tacoma, 4cylinder.
Thanks for the help!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

They dont work. The URD MAF Calibrator can give WOT improvements, as does teh APR-X1, but those are the only 2 I know of.
