Default Prefomance chips. Are they any good?

Hey guys and gals of the forums! I was looking around for ways to increase the whp (and possibly mpg) of my PT. I don't want any ridiculous power. I love my PT and just want to squeeze a bit more power from the 2.4L N/A engine. I found these preformance chips that i assume you plug into the ECU of the car and they claim anywhere from 10-60% gains. I was wondering if any of you have tried these chips and/or know if they work or not. I do know that some cars you can get extra power by flash tuning the ECU and was thinking this works on similar concepts. Thanks in advanced!

Well all I can say is most if not all are just a gimmick they try to trick the computor and most if nto all are usless they will not give tyou more Hp and no way will they give you more MPGs
A Non Turbo is what it is a cool looking care that is underpowered and getts around 20 or so MPG

to make it fast would cost more than a getting a turbo PT GT
