    subscribed. my first opinion is that they are all claims because there arent any chips for our trucks that can do that much of an increase. just my 2 cents. Im interested to see what others with more experience say tho

    Seriously...

    If something is $70 and claims to give you a 60HP increase and 4-7MPG better, don't you think everyone on this forum would have it?


    These "performance chips" are nothing but a waste of $60. They do absolutely nothing.

    I sent them an email asking for the Dyno sheet they claim they having backing these claims. I'm not holding my breath for a response.

    If you want power increase, start with bolt on mods. Intake, Headers, Exhaust, work your way up from there. If you really want power, forced induction.

    I put my ass in the driver's seat. Best mod. yet.
    I know that this is an old thread, but I ran across it will searching the internet and it is worth answering in case someone runs across it in the future. This plugs into the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor. So, it is safe to assume that this is nothing more than the IAT Resistor Mod packaged in an asthetically pleasing form. By doing this, more fuel is put into the mixture than is necessary. It may help a little in the HP department but it will not increase fuel mileage and it could lead to premature wear on emissions equipment.
