No. Chips are as useful as racing stripes that add 20hp. Lets all be grown-ups here and move on from "chips".
If you want to add HP to your car then do it properly. It starts with researching and gaining a bit of knowledge about BPU (basic performance upgrades), and a "chip" is not one of them.
all I chip is usually just a mini circuit board with a led light inside it.
and some of them potentially can interrupt your maf signal and alter it (don't know why you would want to cause rich conditions)
I got bored one day and took one apart...
Why are chips such a controversial topic? I assume the interest in the idea comes from all the squad cars that are supposedly chipped for huge power, but even with those the insiders say the chips aren't for performance. On the other hand, I know trustworthy people who swear by the dyno-proven performance improvements of chips specifically for their cars. Better fuel maps and what not. Do some chips work and others do nothing positive?
