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?

No.

The AEM unit, from Dezod, can be wired in, so it can be for what ever year model. So can the ProEFI. Those are a pretty high jump in price too.

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.

That can happen if the HP and TQ are set to different scales.

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

Is the trd catback the same size as our stock exhaust and 2.5"?
