Chip for 1999 eclipse (real or fake info)
lol another thread by me... Some of my friends which are lazy are asking me to find car parts for them.

Reffering to this:

Better Fuel Economy Increased Horsepower And Torque
Up To 4 mpg Increase Faster Acceleration (0-60 Times)
35+ Horse Power Increase 50% Better Throttle Response

His has currently has 210 HP, all stock just aftermarket rims and lowerd.
Is this thing real or just fake shit, asking because it's really really cheap...

If this is bullshit can you direct me to a real chip which can have these type of effects?

I'm almost certain that its impossible to gain hp and then gain fuel mileage, usually its an inverse relationship.

At any rate, those performance chips are all bull in my opinion, first of all what is it connected to?
Second of all, 210 hp Eclipse? Meaning the turbo model, right?
It says on the auction "will not work on turbo or supercharged vehicles"
Third if anything most and almost all chips work because they tell your car to throw max fuel into your engine inorder to provide this "extra power" when all its doing is tricking the car to thinking you're flooring it.

A real performance "chip" requires ECU tuning, not just some odd piggy back that is thrown into the engine bay.
