Performance Chips

I been on ebay looking for some performance chips for my 2001 Lexus IS300, and the only chips i seen look raely little and go for lik 30 dollars and say they instantly add 10-25 HP, it says and describes what it does how to use it and how it is performed.. just wondering if they realy work and if they are worth buying for my car.. if you can pm me and let me know it well help a fellow IS car owner.. thanks

Those are fake and dont work. There is no "chip" for our car. Get an AFC, emanage, or full standalone.

those things are scams... you will see no gains, please dont waste your money on that.

instead, take your girl out for a nice dinner and explain to her how your car will always come second to her (just make sure you spend as little time on these forums as possible or you will break that promise!).

or start saving for boost, haha.

by the way, welcome to .NET!

hey, ya welcome to the forums...those chips a load of sh*t and a waste of money, they dont make chips for our car. The only thing there is, is a Intake and an R-ECU which changes ur air/fuel ratio but u have to use their intake for it, or u can get an AFC or emanage like spooner said but that also requires u to get it dynod and tuned
