We need a lot more information. Year? S/C?

What type of 'chip' did you get? Why don't you think it works?

its b/c those are gimmick's and yield 0 net hp, sorry but your safer not running ANY "chip" regardless of what the site says.
zzp and intense both sell 1.5 bin pcms which do a little to help out a performance engine, but even those yield very little hp.(use to do things like add a little timing, up rev limit, remove speed limiter, etc) if you want to tune it then you will need either DHP powrtuner or HPtuners software and a laptop.

lol lol lol or the temp dropped outside.......... haha sorry man...... never buy a "chip" off ebay if your feeling rambunksheus, than buy a 8000K resistor at radioshack and stick each end in your IAT sensor....... BAMBO theres a degree of timing and your engine thinks its really cold out.......

This isn't the thread, but as I understand many of these 'chips', they add a resistor in the MAF signal, which fools the computer into running rich, or they fool the IAT into 'faking' the outside air temp to alter the amount of fuel and timing.

Both of these tricks are dangerous, I would not touch these things with a 30 ft pole.

Street Tech is out of business - if it even was a real business.
