theres another fun one

I like this testimonial for the turbonator

"In a completely stock 99' Dodge Neon sport, I gained ten horses and went from 34-37 wheel horsepower to 44-47 wheel horsepower (using a G-Tech Pro performance meter). I have also noted (when I drive responsibly) a gain in gas mileage. I also lost a full second off my Quarter-mile times; from 16.8 to 15.8 and probably could have done better with more time with the G-Tech."

Yeah the most entertaining part of these chip auctions is the feedback

I think the funniest one is some guy in a Tercel gave a negative cause he didnt feel a 20 horsepower difference

Read the MYTHS sticky topic in Performance and Brainstorming. This very forum. And the threshold for 'feeling' the power is 5-10 hp.

All of them are BS. Every single one. If you want 14s you get, STRAIT intake, exaust, PCM, rockers, and cam. If you want better, I believe Intence has a turbo kit. You can run 12'* maybe higher with serious tunning.

I like how the product has what looks a **** on it, as if it is used to adjust the amount of power. So you can keep it tame for the street but wild for the strip :o
