came across this performance chip, they're making some pretty big claims about it, 40+ HP, 4-7mpg gained, etc....just wondering what everyone thinks about it, it is only $69, so im obviously quite skeptical

if it were that easy Dodge would've done it from the start...especially with the price of gas.

just say no...just a resistor chip that will fake out the iat sensor into thinking that the air is 20 degrees cooler...

Not worth it nor does it really tune the engine.

Wanna tune up that engine? Look at SuperChips or, my fave, Diablosport and their Predator programmer.
