Performance chip????

Hi I am very new at trying to improve my trucks performance and I dont know very much.

I was wondering what does a performance chip exactly do? Why do people get them?

Also I have heard many horror stories about how people install the performance chip and it really screws up their engine and it just did not run the same after they installed it, getting the chip made their engine worse.

So do these Performance chips really work and is it worth the money? If it is what are some good brands that you would recommend?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

There is no "Performance chip" for the Tacomas. Look to URD, or APR-X1. Depending on the year of your truck.

If you want a performance chip, gets dodge or ford diesel. Our trucks are one of a kind, aprx-1 if you have the dough for that bad boy
