alot of those chips just "fool" the car into thinking that the gas pedal is pressed down more than it really is. Thus giving you, the driver, the perception of more power. So you can:

Pay $90.00 or
Scoot your seat up an inch!

Just press on the pedal harder, its free.

performance chips have been discussed before, locked

Have a question? Try the my.is FAQ or, if you can't find an answer there, search before posting your question (hopefully in the correct forum).
