    My friend used an ebay chip on his 1995 Mercedes E420 and it removed his governor. His top speed was 130 before the engine cut power and after the chip he was able to hit 137 before running out of road.

  3. Good video but I think it could of been shorter in its explanation

  4. BaconNBeer says:

    I was hoping it would blow up. At least it would have been fun to watch it go up in flames.

  5. BaconNBeer says:

    I think you are susposed to run it for over 100 miles to get the most from it. Who knows.

    Performance chips do work! Maybe not those cheap 20 dollar “performance” chips, but my revo stage 2 performance chip changed the top speed on my GTI from 128 to 162. Granted I spent $900 American dollars + new reinforced motor mounts and Audi R8 ignition coils. Still all for around 1 grand. Not too bad. Pulls a lot quicker too

  11. The chip is literally just a light. Lol

  12. Maybe tuck that chip in ass get better result. Where do u guys find time for the t shirt planning with all that amazing tuning u guys do?? What time u guys gotta be out of that shop after every video before the owners get back to use their shop?

  15. Eric Favors says:

    Man I'm 13min in and this shit is too funny…. The false faith they have and expressions

  16. John Doe says:


  17. This video is so unnecessarily long.

  18. To save you 27 minutes. Before chip: 177bhp and after chip: 177bhp. No difference

  19. Worst fucking video

  20. Brikkyz says:

    Still not as cheap a power upgrade then putting a chev badge on your commodore

    It's not even as good as "shit in a box". At least with "shit in a box", when you throw it away, the shit will help grow something (or at the very least, decompose) in the landfill in which it will be buried. That "chip" will just be another useless pollutant lying in a landfill somewhere, taking zillions of years to decompose due to the plastics and such in which it is made up of. Yeay-rah!

  22. Turbo Diesel says:

    Chip information is scratched off so you can't trace what they were or are for. Sorta like removing a VIN from a car, it's no longer able to be properly identified.

  23. Turbo Diesel says:

    This is a totally useless "chip" that has a tiny toggle switch and 2 LED lights to impress the foolish sucker (er, I mean, purchaser…) of said chip. LMAO!

  24. Turbo Diesel says:

    Simply put, it does absolutely NOTHING except one thing. It lightens your bank account balance if you purchase this snake oil bullshit "performance chip". Duh. Like anything that is too good to be true… it is.

  25. I had a Mitsubishi eclipse that had something similar installed into the MAF sensor. The car wouldn't run in cold weather. Definitely not a good idea

  26. Im planning on making my car spicy but I dont know how much sauce to use. Its a 2007 honda 5 turbo fast car from 2009 quad turboed

  27. 121bham says:

    Lol Moog at the end says VTEC is like having turbo lag without boost. You're waiting and waiting and waiting and then nothing much happens. But it sounds nice.

  28. Is their a way to put a aftermarket radio in 2006 base grandprix
