    Waste of money. Gimmick. No way that chip adds 50+ HP or Torque.

    I would almost try this im sure its not going to give u 50+ hp or torque but they do say

    I'd almost spend the $70 just to reverse engineer it and post the results. Click every auto manufacture and every model the page is the same and the cost is the same. Click on home and the first thing that is there is a picture of some high performance car with the text "Unleash hidden horsepower in your car! Up to +50hp in some models". Alarm bells are ringing.

    i looked on some other forums and so far everyone is in the same boat as us. sounds to good to be true but would a lot of people are almost willing to buy it since it offers a 100% moneyback if u dont like it. to me im fine with the power and if i had more power i would be just gassing my truck more so i would be getting worse gas mpg.

    Seeing as they're entirely different systems from gen1 to gen 2.... that was my first alarm.

    I heard these chips are like little resistors, or something like that. They make your computer think its running xx* cooler and can cause damage later down the road/ fried the computer
