Default Performance chips?

What about those near-magic performance chips that claim to improve fuel efficiency, power (up to 30CV+ !!! ) and a bunch of advantages for a mere $25?

Anyone tried one of these?

If its too good to be true it sure is. $25 is not going to give you anything. Save it and put it towards a DiabloSport or Superchips.
