All I hear is that they make a very slight difference and eat more fuel. I have been told that there is very little gain on the butt dyno. ( I asked around b/c I wanted one myself and this is what I was told; second hand now)

You'll want more than the chip. The chip by itself won't get you anything.


You'll still be bringing in the same amount of air and exhausting the same amount due to stock intake and exhaust limitations.

Forget the chips. Get headers, a larger diameter exhuast with hi-flow cats and muffler, and an intake tube.
