Is a performance chip worth it?

I came across this chip online, just wondering if this would be worth buying. I don't think it will add much power unless i have a turbo. Any thoughts?

Don't let the name fool you. They make a legit piggyback ECU and have been fore many years. Chip is just in the name.

I haven't seen their site but I know they have been doing this for some time now. You don't have to buy their product if you don't like their website.

Try a TRD Cat Back exhaust if you want guaranteed HP and Fuel Economy...Chips may void that warranty thing.
