    It may have been mentioned here before but has anyone tried this chip? Most of the reviews are very good. For $130 I’m thinking of trying it out.

    Probably shenanigans. Any chips like this just add in a resistor (I think) to trick the IAT sensor into thinking its colder out.

    Unless you personally know the reviewer, and it's backed with a pre and post install set of dyno pulls, color me skeptical. Lots of color please.

    $130... sounds like a sham.... probably some BS resistor setup, most plug in programmers dont require to stay plugged in.

    What about shift sense pro and pedal commander. Both of those items have to stay plugged in all the time.

    If it did what they say it can do it would be patented and that’s not the case here.

    those both wire inline with the pedal it basically modifies the signal to the ECU for throttle control. same can be done with the OVtune if so desired, or modified to do so.
