I'd be weary on this one...I've always heard if you're going to go the tuner/programmer/chip route, it's better to spend the money and get one of the $2oo-$4oo units that you plug in and program with. I'm no expert on this subject, but I thought I'd give my 2 cents on it. Search this forum though, there are a lot of threads on this that will help you make a decision.

All this "chip" does is fool your engine's computer to make it think it is seeing more demand for fuel and it overfuels the engine. They indicate that it also changes the timing to accommodate the additional fuel.

It will make some power (not much) but the additional fuel won't be burned as efficiently as it needs to be. This will send too much hydrocarbon through the engine combustion cycle and that will foul your plugs, carbon up your EGR valve prematurely, cause significant deposits on your valves and heads which creates hot spots and detonation, and eventually will plug up your catalytic converter.

You would be better off saving a bit more for a proper programmer, IMHO.
