    Has anybody tried one of the GForce Performance Chips? The claims sound about too good to be true.

    Here's a link to their website: http://www.gfchips.com/toyotatacoma.aspx

    My '05 Taco is bone stock, enginewise, but I'd like to increase it's performance some, without breaking the bank. My previous truck was a 2000 F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab with the the 7.3L Power Stroke diesel. It was easy to hop up with a chip.

    60hp, 4-7 mpg, $69? If it sounds too good to be true, It probably is.

    MSRP is $399.99 and they're selling it for $69? Too good to be true. It screams run. I wouldn't get it.
