Default Performance chips

On our opening page, theres an ad for $69 performance chips, promising 60 extra HP & 7 MPG mileage increase. Do any of you guys have experience with this brand??

It's a fraud. There's no way a chip alone can give you 60 hp.

It's a SCAM! DO NOT BUY! No chip can or will do anything like that on our trucks. Save your money and get a real tuner. I have a DSP tuner and absolutely love it! By the way Welcome to the Forumz!

Yes, I would take Jpaul's advice. He knows a thing or two about scams.
