Really, for 70 bucks even if it helps a little it would be worth it?

How about the uni-chip? Its like ten times that much..

How do you think it will help? Like how do you think it will install on your truck and help you get better MPG and more power? Also the Unichip unit isn't what you think it is.

It states that in installs and changes the signal goning to the ecu to optimize fuel and timing settings to increase milage and performance. I could imagine that working if its done right.

Yeah but do you really think for $60 that it will do anything? Unichip is a real product that modifies the signal going to the ECU. Even better than that is the URD MAF calibrator. Horsepower isn't cheap man.

Anything on ebay that promises to increase power or anything anywhere else that promises to increase power and MPG for cheap is just junk. Computers in cars are a lot more complicated now and you simply can't change or add a chip to gain power.

I don't see how any chip would give it more power and better fuel economy. What it really means is, can be tuned for more hp OR better fuel mileage, not both.
