you may notice a small difference but it is pretty much a gimmick it just tricks your vehicle into thinking it is running lean below 99 you have a better chance of using it after 99 I doubt it will do much your computer will recognize this and compensate so after a little while your performace would go back to the way it was before it is much like putting an adjustable fuel pressure regulator on it

don't listen to repost. i have the chip myself and it actually did make my car a lot more responsive. my car wasn't so bad as it came stock with 205 hp. however, surpassing the governed 107 mph my car did and pinning my speedometer at 140 was quite impressive. i didn't expect it to be honest but it was true to its word.

Someone who has installed it! Ive been scouring the web for something suitable for my car and this chip is the only one i came across. Where did you buy it from? I can only see an American stockist who wants to charge $30 postage. Im still sceptical as to whether this is a gimmick or it will really work - is it a placebo!? I suppose a 0-60 will prove it before and after but i fear thats way too late!
Also is it easy to install (by a mechanic! not me).

I have one in my car. I have a 98 Firebird with the v8 engine and 6 speed. When I installed the X3 performance chip, the idle was a lot smoother, I got much better throttle response, and I can burn out in gears 1-3 haha.
You can easily install this yourself or have someone do it. I work on my own cars and was able to install this myself in about an hour.
Give it a try, I love mine!!!

Come on ROB. Your going to spend up to 5000 dollars for a supercharger and you want to "save" on this worthless product? You know your car will need a totally new "tune" to compinsate for the supercharger without blowing up the engine.You might want to take time to learn some things before you get that supercharger. READ READ then read some more.

You will notice this "chip" is nothing but a fancy resistor that can be bought for 50 cents at radio shack. This only hooks up to the IAT (intake air temp) so it just tell the computer air is cooler or hotter thats it. I have no more time to write about this crap look at this GTO site for more input.

I put it in my 1999 Nissan truck, before i was getting 15-16 mpg. Almost thought about supporting the cash for clunkers. Installed it about a year ago, went up to 21-22 mpg. I will be buying one for my toyota car now but i can say without a doubt, i did notice a big difference. I was looking for just an increase in milage more so than power. Also factor in that you just cant step on the pedal and expect the chip to save you gas, you will need to adjust your driving techniques, but it was definitely noticable.

Yeah Nissan would give up 5 mpg instead of putting this junk on there car.They would of sold million more cars with this 10 dollar part. I wonder why they never thought of this? LOL Try just replacing your 1999 O2 sensors for nice new ones.
