Default Power Chip

Does the installation of a "power chip" really give the engine more horse power and more miles per gallon??

If it does, what is a good brand of power chip for a 2008 NA, automatic?

Save your money so you can trade your PT in for a turbo.

The JET PERFORMANCE CHIP is amazing...

Wow.

Well, I watched the whole video. Now there's 27 minutes I won't get back.

Surely, this is not to say that ALL power chips are bogus, or are they??

Am I correct in saying that there are different electric control modules and maps that would give their correlating specific engines better performance and economy??

well im not a ASE Certified mechanic nor am I even a real everyday mechanic but I am pretty sure that if there really was a simple little chip that would give you 35 Hp and 10 miles more per gallon really think about that for a second no adding NOS no changing cams no changing injectors or adding a programmer all with a little chip they would #1 some how be outlawed but the big gas company's and #2 be so out of stock it would not be funny and #3 who ever came up with it would be such a billionare in a super short time

Me im saying some may be better than others but most are simply snake oil

i think i'd be pretty pissed that chrysler didn't include it with the vehicle originally. i'd also be shocked they didn't give you that power and mpg from the factory, since marketing vehicles tends to be mostly bragging about HP and MPG.

just FYI- the chip from my era ford was two confusingly packaged 1k ohm resistors that touched a number of important sensors, but in the end only lowered the ACT and ECT by appx 20F.
