    Sorry, I don't get it. Are there any non-sarcastic opinions out there?

    dont waste your money. If you want power the only real way is a Turbo or supercharger kit. Oh and a tacomaworld sticker. :D

    GTE is an old phone company.

    Look at the URD MAF Calibrator or the Unichip Piggyback computer. There are no "chips" for our trucks. Toyota is a lot smarter than to allow someone to put a cheap ass chip on their computer.

    While I do not have any experience with this product, GTE also offers an electric supercharger, which is a complete ripoff. I would imagine that anything that they make is also crap.


    BTW, GTE was the name of a phone company, hence the phone company reference in post #2.

    They are useless my friend.
    $ better spent on exhaust or intake or supercharger...

    I have installed this chip in my 1996 Honda CRV. 2 minutes to install with wire taps. It does everything it claims.
    I am getting 4mpg better fuel consumption around town and highway running. Probably because I'm getting lower revs for same speed eg 3000rpm was getting me 110kph , now 120kph.
    Seems to have found a 500rpm overdrive gear.
    Much more torque - holds revs and speed much better up inclines.
    And just quicker off the line - just quite a different drive.

    What sort of dork says 'proof?' - I'm just telling you what my experience is- I''ve done a 800km road trip and about 300km town trips since installation with tank full to tank full and that's what I've observed.

    I once bought one of these chips and my truck flew to the moon. I have moon rocks to prove it too.
