Waste of money.Tell ya what,send me the money and i will put it to better use for me for ya,lol.You cannot gain the the horsepower and mpg's out of a chip.I had a SLR chip and it didn't work.It only threw codes in my truck until i got rid of her.Now it sits in my garage collecting dust where it will remain.

FALSE

All major reputable tuning companies offer the option of a chip. Its the EXACT same thing you would get from a handheld tuner, without physically having the tuner. The .PCM file is still the same, and yields the same gains wether its loaded from a handheld or is pickybacking the PCM from a chip.
