Default GF Performance Chip???

Anybody try this on their 2010 model? It's not available for the 2011 yet.

Supposed to kick up the horsepower by 60 and mpg by 3-4 for around $70.

Sounds to good to be true and probably is.

Yes it looks too good to be true. But it has a good 100% $$ back guaranty. My worry is that it isnt reversible. At least it doesn't mention reverting back to standard tune. I'll have to study more before making final judgement.

Here is just one of many forum posts about it on web:


Okay, ill make it clear for you..

basically what you are paying for is

1) A cheap resistor. A true tunning company makes whole systems for ECU management like Greddy Emanage and Hondata, just for some reference. Those took them almost months/years to manufacture not to mention the amount of dynos and money invested, and that for specific cars, with specific models for specific ECUs for specific year of manufacture.

2) Acc. to their install, you have to splice it between your AIT and ECU, and supposedly it tricks your ECU to think that the air coming in through the filter is colder than it is. Highly dangerous for your engine to make the ECU believe in false numbers, can cause serious engine damage.

3) Apparently, they made a chip for every make, model and year of manufactured cars?!?! Doesn't that seem fishy to you?

4) If tunning to 60hp with just a chip with $70 was so true, don't you think you would see more and more people go with this route? rather than spend thousands to go turbo or supercharged? or engine swap?

5) If you want a true tune, you would need to get some engine parts(headers, catback, intake, turbo?) then get a piggyback or reflash your ECU, we have a sponsor here with a piggyback I believe RRM.

6) Its just plain bullshit. "

You hit it on the head with No. 6.

If you ever watch Horsepower TV and see what they spend (free for them) to gain 25 horsepower is almost laughable.

The speed-freak industry is alive and well.

That 60 hp increase is very unlikely and the 3 - 4 mpg increase will not happen either. Save your money.
