Default Performance Chip

Was looking around and stumbled across this http://www.gfchips.com/nissanmaxima.aspx. Is this thing for real? The claims it makes and the price seem too good to be true. If not, are there other chips anyone would recommend to increase hp without costing fuel economy?

Looks like bullshit to me. The first eyebrow raiser is it has a chip listed for the Buggatti for the the same price.

No there is NO CHIP for our cars.

I hope all the newbies that read this understands that after 02

most ECU are Can data link , which means all the sensors and tied in on 1 circuit , tampering with the ECU will cause the ECU to fail and out $1000.

ECU CHIPS *WERE* popular before Nissan went CAN BUS

most ECU from 90-97 Nissan , you could solder a chip into the daughter board of the ECU to get the gains, these chips were program into the chipset like your PC.

YOU CANNOT do that anymore ,

This is a gimmick , and for that price, if it did work wouldn't you think it would be a popular discussion ?

don't buy into the hype


There is NO CURRENT CHIP FOR our ECU

And this statement " increase hp without costing fuel economy? " will NOT HAPPEN.

in order for you to get something you must lose something

And no really such thing is

Pretty sure all of those chips are crap. They claim some crazy hp jump and 8 more mpg. Dumb

So what exactly was Technosquare offering for some of our cars. I know some had their ECU "flashed" but I never knew exactly what that did or if it really worked. What do you think?

Default Re: Performance Chip

Thanks for the replies It looked like complete BS to me but I have had friends with other vehicles get wicked gains from a simple chip, so I thought I would ask. I'm definitely a noob so I appreciate the education- that's why I'm here. On a side note, my CAI and brake kit arrived today. No more warped rotors and it's time for my Max to growl a little. Thanks again.

Default Re: Performance Chip

You want performance get a SAFCII for your car, tune it and get the most performance out of your car. Its a piggyback tuning device. Do it the right way. Those chips are nothing more than a resistor that can do more harm than good.
