    Exclamation Chips to improve performance.

    On this site, I saw an ad for a chip that would improve proformance on my 2012 Tundra ( $69 TOYOTA TUNDRA Chip 60 Horsepower Increase 7 MPG Boost Custom ECU Chip Easy Installation. )
    Anyone know anything about this or installed one on their Tundra? Please let me know pros or cons.
    Thanks
    Joe

    I'd stay as far away form those as possible, imo. My brother bought something exactly like that for his GTP.....end result was him needing another motor. He barely takes it out of town and rarely ever puts the pedal down. Other than the chip he had a K&N intake and no other engine mods.

    You get what you pay for and if it was me I wouldn't take a chance on something like that on any vehicle.

    $69 is expensive for a resistor.

    If it is $700 bucks to improve 7MPG then it makes more sense. Otherwise , just another BS.

    nothing is going to improve mileage by 7mpg for the 5.7

    it's a 350 with almost 400 hp, you have to pay to play
