Default VP12 Performance Tuning Chip

I don't know if I posted this is the right place but I was wondering if anyone had reliable information about a performance chip that I have read conflicting reviews about. It is called a VP12 Performance chip from a company called Volo. The company claim is a HP and torque gain and a modest MPG gain in low demand driving (light foot). They have a calculator that will estimate your gains using current HP and Redline and added options like K&N etc. for my 2005 5.7 they estimate (with the addition of the recommended hiflow intake and muffler I assume) my increase at 26 HP and 17 lbs. torque. The intake and muffler would give it some gains I know but is the chip worth the $100 investment? Does it give any gains? Does anybody actually have it installed? It works via the OBD-II port and claims to be safe and reversible. I t also recommends the use of 92 octane in addition to a K&N type air system.
I'm skeptical. Thanks everyone?
