So I keep Running across these Chips on ebay

Example:
Clicky

+25bhp will modify any standard ECU by telling the ECU that the incoming air in the intake system is cold and so advances the ignition by up to 2 degrees with more fueling to compensate, therefore producing more power. In many cases fuel economy is increased too. Power is increased by up to +25bhp and torque is increased significantly.
It will be more responsive

That Sounds right to me... ive never seen a before/after proven power increase, has anybody on here ever fitted one to there car? or known somebody with one fitted, there is many a hundred on ebay.

i was just wondering what people think of them.

More fuel doesnt equal more power, more air and fuel does.

The chip makes the engine think there is more fuel, however as there isnt more air this fuel will just be thrown out unburnt causing damage to your cat.

Increasing fuel economy is a joke.

So where do we buy this so called "Goo car maintenance" and how do we go about using it.

Depends what type "chip" it is, theres a few on there that are a total scam, go onto a sensor most cars dont have lmao.

The power increase is most likly due to the rolling road lol
If you want to do the same, unplug your CTS lol

lol i see these threads on forums all the time

their simply resistor chips worth a few pence that change the fueling of the car iirc.

they dont work, the only thing they do is help **** up your engine. youd be stupid to buy one.

if the did work everybody would buy them

you can't get more power and increased fuel efficency at the same time its a massive con just like those fuel additives
