ordering 4 for a 240hp gain and flawless victory

I was going to work on my shifting, but looks like this thing will help me with that too...


*edit:
what's even more insane is the website that makes these claims:

TESTIMONIALS

The power and drivability I gained from the SLR performance chip truly amazed me! I use my Tundra for some heavy hauls and the greater horsepower I got really helped out! My towing capabilities were greatly increased and to make things even better, I was even seeing greater fuel economy; an average of 5 more miles to the gallon!

Josephina Lopez
2001 Toyota Tundra





You know, trying to get more horsepower from my fuel injected Mustangs has been difficult and so costly I’m nearly in debt! Thankfully, I discovered SLR performance chips, which became my new cost effective means of gaining serious horsepower, torque, and so much more I can’t even explain it all here! It was easy to install them on both my 1994 and my 2000, and I can’t recommend anything better for a true Mustang enthusiast!

John C. Haaschild
1994 & 2000 Ford Mustang




Awesome power, awesome product, there really isn’t much more to say about the SLR performance chip! Pop this baby in and it does all the work for you, these guys really did their homework. My competition is always running scared, thanks SLR Motorsports!

Bruce Powers
2007 Dodge Ram 1500





I race on the weekends and drive my car to work every day. I didn’t want to do costly engine work or supercharging so I looked into the SLR performance chip for some extra power. Let me make one thing clear, this product offers unbeatable horsepower, torque, throttle response, and much more for an unbeatable value! I can beat on my car all weekend and drive around all week knowing that it is safe and sound with the tuning done by the SLR Motorsports performance chip.

Todd Little
2002 Chevrolet Camaro





As much as I love my little S10 I’ll admit that it needed a little bit more pep. I tried exhaust, intake, and other mild performance parts but nothing worked. I like to do things myself, so seeing that SLR performance chips could be easily installed made me give them a try. The fun I have in my little S10 now is through the roof! I put my foot down and it GOES! I get better gas mileage and don’t struggle driving around town anymore! This girl is having a great time in her truck because of an SLR performance chip!

Dayne Phenix
1992 Chevrolet S10





If Chevy is the heartbeat of America, the SLR performance chip is like steroids for my Silverado! I installed this a few months ago and the wows just don’t stop coming! My horsepower and torque have greatly increased! It feels like I’m driving a rocket! I originally bought this chip to gain fuel economy because I was filling up two times a week. Now I’m going faster AND filling up about every week and a half! I recommend an SLR chip to anyone who uses a truck like this for construction work, like I do. It really makes all the difference!

Rick Forster
1998 Chevrolet Silverado 1500





Would you believe you could see almost 60 horsepower from something that takes 10 minutes to install? I didn’t until I bit the bullet and bought an SLR chip! Adding this chip was painless and really opened my eyes to what I’d been missing out on from my car!

Patricia Mund
2001 Volkswagen Jetta





I came to terms with the fact that my car had anemic power. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on adding a turbo that may not have even gained me much power. I picked up an SLR motorsports performance chip for less than 80 bucks and was completely satisfied at what it did for my ride! It’s like I’m driving a high-end sport compact that I didn’t have to spend over 40 grand for!

Steven Nicks
2001 Chevrolet Cavalier





My Titan was pretty quick from the factory but like any performance enthusiast I just wanted more power. I have an exhaust and intake on my truck but that stuff was nothing without some proper tuning. I looked into chips that required you to program in their air and fuel curves and they all seemed to cost a fortune. Then I found SLR Motorsports performance chips that offered “on the fly” tuning for a super affordable price! This ended up being my best purchase next to the truck itself! With my intake and exhaust I ended up making more than the stated 60 horsepower and torque and even picked up serious fuel economy along the way!

Leon Disneros
2004 Nissan Titan





Anyone who has a Tacoma needs this chip! I’ve tried all kinds of things to gain extra horsepower and fuel economy, only to end up thinking it was a myth. Expensive self-tuners and other mild performance upgrades or fuel saving gimmicks have nothing on this! Simply install it and you really do see loads of extra horsepower, throttle response, and even fuel economy! You really know what you’re doing SLR Motorsports!

Anna Hudgens
1997 Toyota Tacoma





SLR performance chips are wicked! This is the easiest thing I’ve installed on my teg’ and the one performance part that’s added the most! I swear it gains more than the 60 horsepower that it’s claimed to bring! My intake, headers, and exhaust all even function better because my motor is being tuned for them. My friends have spent thousands on engine swaps and turbo setups, I spent $80 and smoke them!

Steve Shoemaker
1997 Acura Integra





Fast, fast, fast! My car is finally fast! I drive an hour to school everyday in traffic and sometimes couldn’t even make lights because I couldn’t speed up to them fast enough! With my SLR chip, I put my foot down and go! Did I mention the awesome gas mileage I’m getting? 34 MPG in the city!!!!!!!!!

Jessica Trillo
2006 Scion TC





I feel like I’m driving a high-end luxury sedan, this is amazing! I was looking for a little more power because all of my buddies talked about what was in their Mercedes and BMWs. I wanted to add power as cleanly as possible and the SLR performance chip was just the trick! Installed it one night in under ten minutes and it has since brought me days of driving that is so fun it should be illegal! This is my little secret to making my 9-5 job a lot more fun!

Jeremy Fischer
2005 Acura TL





There is nothing greater you can do to your F150, period. Yes, there are a lot of things you can buy for your truck that claim to bring huge amounts of horsepower for a decent cost, but this one really lives up to its claims! I drive my trucks daily and as a construction business owner demand everything from their performance. The horsepower, torque, fuel economy, towing capabilities, and throttle response I’ve gained from adding the SLR Motorsports performance chips greatly exceed my demands. Pick up an SLR Motorsports performance chip for your F150 if you want to see what your truck is truly about.

Ted Scoggins
1996, 2001, 2009 Ford F150





I couldn’t afford the SS but still wanted a sport compact that had good looks and decent performance. I tried intakes and exhaust systems but nothing seemed to really gain me any true power. I thought about swapping in an SS motor but didn’t because I just couldn’t afford the cost! When I finally got around to installing an SLR motorsports chip, which cost me less than $80, I didn’t think twice about anything else! Adding this chip completely revved up my driving experience and now I have the power and performance I want!

Jack Criba
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt





Want more power for your CK? The only way to go is SLR performance chips! I swear, this thing gained me more power, more fuel economy, and greater drivability than I ever thought possible from a truck that’s over ten years old! I just want everyone to know!

Tom Baiola
1996 Chevrolet CK 1500





You buy a vette’ cause you want the best that a company has to offer. You want to be part of the American legend that has raced through the minds of guys like me since we were kids. I’ve found that the only way to truly experience everything a Corvette has to offer is by installing an SLR chip on it. The greater horsepower, torque, fuel economy, and throttle response I’ve seen with this thing has rocked my world. Simply put, wonderful part for a wonderful car.

Gary McGuiggan
2000 Chevrolet Corvette





My Impala goes real fast because of the SLR chip. This is the first thing I’ve added to my car as far as performance goes that makes it truly custom! I’ve gained horsepower that I can feel and gas mileage that I can see since adding the chip. There really is nothing like it for improving your ride.

Tyrell Hardy
1996 Chevrolet Impala





They just don’t make them like they used to! It’s been tough for my husband and I to get the power and fuel economy we wanted from my car, it’s nothing like trying to tune a carburetor that’s for sure! Thankfully, we came across the SLR performance chip and were able to stop wasting our time with anything else! Horsepower is up there, fuel economy is where it should be, and I’m one happy driver!

Esther Tamminson
2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo





Heavy duty is a word I can now use to describe the power and performance I got from adding an SLR performance chip! Gobs of extra horsepower, torque, and throttle response let me load up the bed and drive on with ease. Extra fuel economy has saved me hundreds of dollars on fuel in the last couple of months and in every sense made the SLR performance chip pay for itself!

George Ramirez
2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD





My wife is driving the Suburban around everywhere, so I wanted to make sure she was making the most out of her fuel economy. I added an SLR motorsports performance chip so I could do that and found myself behind the wheel of her truck more and more! The fuel economy is through the roof, but the power gained by this thing makes taking the kids to soccer practice a blast! Time to get an SLR motorsports performance chip for my car!

Jacob Higgins
1998 Chevrolet Suburban





I take my Tahoe to places most have never gone. I wanted the security of greater horsepower and fuel economy, which I found with the SLR motorsports performance chip! Sometimes after a rough ride through the woods, my truck would even run a little rough, but that’s also changed since adding the chip! I’ve gotten greater off road adventures since adding the SLR chip!

Julie Tierney
1995 Chevrolet Tahoe





I got an SLR performance chip because my Trailblazer just wasn’t driving like it should. Since installing it I’ve found that my acceleration and fuel economy have greatly improved. Things that are more important to me, like idle and transmission shifting for a smooth ride, perform like silk since the install.

Terry Frensa
1999 Chevrolet Trailblazer





SLR motorsports performance chips add a blast of power to your car. No joke, installing this thing gave me over 60 horsepower with my exhaust system! People know me as “the guy with that really fast charger” and that makes me feel good. It was as easy as installing an SLR performance chip!

William Clayton
2005 Dodge Charger





With the SLR motorsports performance chip installed I can actually live up to my go anywhere do anything attitude! Nothing is a challenge to tow with the superior horsepower and torque I’ve gained. Driving with cargo is just as easy as driving without! My fuel economy has greatly improved no matter what the circumstance! Great Job SLR motorsports, you’ve really done the trick!

Roger Straub
2007 Dodge Dakota





I’ve had a lot of trouble getting better fuel economy out of my Durango. I drive it everyday so I need it to be super reliable. I dropped in an SLR motorsports performance chip and not only gained fuel economy, but also greatly increased my horsepower in under ten minutes! My ride to work is fun, and economical, which didn’t even know it was possible before the SLR chip!

Terri Clemens
2001 Dodge Durango





My Neon went from average to savage in the ten minutes it took to install the SLR motorsports performance chip! Now I boast awesome horsepower and torque in a fun little chassis that really moves! My throttle response is so good that I beat most cars I race off the line! Who needs the SRT-4, the SLR performance chip is really what I’d call value for the dollar!

I found out what makes a hemi move- An SLR performance chip! The horsepower, torque, and throttle response I got has me smoking the tires everywhere I go just for fun! I highly recommend an SLR chip to anyone looking to tow heavier loads, as the extra power and smoother shifting makes the job a piece of cake. Fuel economy has been greatly increased and I’m filling up less now than I ever imagined. By installing an SLR chip I feel like all the dreams about the perfect truck have finally come true!

Bob Rutherford
2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500





Holy smokes, my expedition takes me places faster with a lot more fuel efficiency! I’m a mother of three and I have many places to go with not too much time in between. Adding the SLR chip was incredibly easy and the power I’ve gained and the money I’ve saved on fuel really has me raving about this product! Thank you SLR Motorsports, you made my life a lot easier!

Kerry Richards
1998 Ford Expedition





I thought I’d take a chance and explore the potential of the SLR motorsports performance chip. Good thing I did, because in less than ten minutes I was able to add huge power and fuel economy! The more amazing thing, my drivability has increased, my truck is shifting and idling smoother than ever before! All of this for under $80, best value I’ve ever seen for the money.

Vincent Marconi
1997 Ford Explorer





Never before adding the SLR motorsports performance chip has my job of hauling cattle been so easy! Thousands of pounds of cow should be easy to tow right? Wrong, my truck was always struggling and guzzling fuel! I added the SLR motorsports chip after trying a variety of other “chips”. I simply installed the SLR chip, with the easy directions that were included and sat back in the drivers seat to watch the show. I was wowed by the ease of towing a sixty-foot trailer full of beef; the extra horsepower, torque, and throttle response really showed through! The gas mileage I gained was simply astonishing, while I was towing I still got at least 6 extra miles to the gallon! The technology behind the SLR performance chip is really the green grass on the other side of the fence!

Guy McCollum
1999 Ford F250





I’d been looking to make my Focus faster for a long time. $3000+ and supercharger kits really didn’t look that enticing. Engine work had the possibility of keeping my car off the road for a long time, which wasn’t an option for me. I needed something that installed fast and clean, like the SLR motorsports performance chip. The SLR chip transformed my car into a true street monster for less than $80! The horsepower and torque I gained was huge, and my acceleration was a catalyst for superior driving fun! No one’s messing with the awesome rally power I gained from the SLR Motorsports Focus performance chip!

Evan Kraemer
2003 Ford Focus





What do you know, the SLR motorsports performance chip really does work! I installed it and got better acceleration, fuel economy, and my oil changes were way less frequent. I don’t think there’s any easier way to gain performance like this than the SLR chip!

Joey Warsif
1995 Ford Ranger





Thanks SLR Motorsports, you’ve made my job a lot easier. Your chip was just as easy to install as you said, and it brought me better horsepower, torque, and towing capabilities. My gas mileage increased too, I really can’t thank you enough!

Brandy Rollin
1998 GMC Sierra 1500





My Accord was sluggish at times, and it seemed as the years went by, was costing me more and more in fuel. I looked up fixes and found your SLR motorsports performance chip! After a ten minute install, it felt like I was driving a whole new class of car! My acceleration was better than most of my friend’s new cars, and my fuel economy was averaging over 34 miles to the gallon in the city!

Tammy Daniels
1994 Honda Accord





My ride is wicked fast because I installed an SLR motorsports performance chip! I got exhaust, intake, headers, and a few other goodies, but when I combined them with this… I started smoking everyone who tried to race me! Your dynamic tuning brought me serious horsepower and torque easier than anything else I’ve done! Two thumbs up to SLR Motorsports for a real power gainer!

Stephen Plantonis
1996 Honda Civic





I wanted my car to drive as good as it looked. I added an SLR motorsports performance chip and found out what driving a true sports car is like! My Tiburon gets up and goes, and best of all, I was able to install this kind of power by myself! The SLR chip is awesome!

Jessica Wilbanks
2007 Hyundai Tiburon






This power is crazy! The SLR motorsports performance chip really is a revolutionary product in my personal opinion! Nothing adds horsepower and fuel economy like this!

Karr Pat
2005 Infiniti G35





Now that I’ve got my SLR chip, my driving experience really lives up to the name “grand”! Driving Jeep Grand Cherokee with the SLR chip installed is a whole new adventure with a lot of power, fuel economy, and fun! I swear I’m getting over 60 horsepower and the fuel economy is better than my wife’s four banger!

Harris McMillan
1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee





You want to feel what a Jeep is all about; pick up an SLR Motorsports performance chip! I’m unstoppable since adding the chip, which really did only take ten minutes to install! The extra horsepower, torque, and throttle response I’ve gained helps me tear through any off-road situation. Jeep enthusiasts do what’s right for your Wrangler, add an SLR performance chip!

Jimmy Nabbmic
2001 Jeep Wrangler





I really am on top of the world now that I have the SLR Motorsports performance chip! My classy ride is complimented by extreme acceleration, throttle response, and it even shifts like a cloud. Try me with an SLR Motorsports chip and you’ll be looking at my taillights!

Carrigan Watts
2001 Lincoln LS





Nothing was able to get the power out of my wenkel like an SLR chip! I bolted on all sorts of performance parts, nothing was really doing the trick! The chip, which was easier to install than anything, is the only performance upgrade I’ve seen with the ability to keep everything stock while making huge amounts of power! The SLR chip is a performance upgrade and a miracle.

Nik Christianson
2007 Mazda RX8





Nothing is as extreme as the SLR performance chip! I put this bad boy in, got behind my wheel, and took off like a jet! The extra horsepower and torque is what really makes me leave everyone in the dust! It’s like I did $3000 worth of work in ten minutes for just $80, nothing compares!

Nathan Humbert
2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse





I drive a lot so fuel mileage was very important to me, then again, I definitely didn’t mind making my Lancer a little more fun! Turns out, the SLR performance chip was able to give me that and more! My mechanic even said my oil changes didn’t have to be done as frequently since adding the SLR chip! Driving with an SLR chip is a blast!

Danielle Sbiris
2002 Mitsubishi Lancer





My Altima isn’t the car it used to be, it’s a serious performer with the SLR chip installed! I wasn’t expecting the gains in horsepower, torque, and acceleration to be so great! My fuel economy even increased about 8 miles to the gallon to boot! What a deal for something that is only $80!

Sarah Hughes
1997 Nissan Altima





You have no idea what an SLR chip will do until you try it. The power and performance I gained is just awesome. My ride was fun before the SLR chip, but now it’s out of control, in the best ways possible! Cheers SLR Motorsports for making one hell of an upgrade!

Brendan Martin James
2005 Nissan 350Z





I got my truck because it was fuel efficient and functional, but when I loaded it up, there was no telling what kind of struggle it’d be just to get where I needed to go! The SLR performance chip changed all that in no time, I gained horsepower, torque, and towing capabilities that really amped up the ease of my jobs! Not to mention my fuel economy greatly increased no matter how much I stuffed back there!

Nancy Simmons
1998 Nissan Frontier





Maximum is the only way to describe how much fun I have driving my car since adding an SLR performance chip! I was shocked at how easy it was to add such incredible power and drivability for such an affordable cost! Time to get an SLR chip for all of our cars!

Taak Jevovic
2002 Nissan Maxima





I really wanted more power with my new car, but I didn’t know a thing about cars! I took a stab at installing an SLR chip and I’m more than thankful I did! The install was a piece of cake and my car is quicker than I could have ever dreamed!

Nina Romero
2009 Pontiac G6





This car’s true potential is really unlocked by the SLR chip! I stomp on BMWs and Mercedes all day like they’re clunkers. My engine’s power and acceleration are unbeatable! The gains from my SLR chip are what driving is all about!

Theo Saravropolous
2008 Pontiac G8





My car is a rocket! Driving with an SLR performance chip has given me new respect for fuel injection! I didn’t have to fiddle with fancy computers. Just plugged it in and now I’ve got the serious horsepower of the good old days!

Alan Finfrock
1997 Pontiac Grand Am





Talk about finishing first, I do every time since installing my SLR chip! No one stands a chance, I kill them off the line! I gained mad acceleration, horsepower, torque, and even fuel mileage! The SLR performance chip is my secret!

Andrea Phillips
2000 Pontiac Grand Prix





It’s great to bring this American legend up to the standard of power of the car we all knew in the 70’s. It’s easy to add the SLR performance chip, and that has given more time behind the car I now thoroughly enjoy to drive because of the superior power and reliability I’ve gained.

Michael Kent
2004 Pontiac GTO





I’d always wanted the turbo Impreza but just couldn’t afford the insurance, let alone the car itself. Trying to squeeze power with normal performance parts out of the N/A flat four is bogus. With the SLR Motorsports Impreza performance chip, I’ve been able to get the power that’s got me right up there with the turbo cars! My gas mileage is better than all of my friend’s WRXs and they freak out when I told them I got all of this for under $80! Looks like I’m the only winner here!

Grant Sessions
2005 Subaru Impreza





I didn’t know if it’d be possible to make my Camry get better fuel economy, but heavy amounts of driving forced me to try! My tight budget allowed me to spend under $100 to try to squeeze at least 35 MPG from my car. I did my research and found the SLR Motorsports performance chip. After installing it, it was like I was driving a whole new car! Yeah, my gas mileage went well above 35 MPG, but what I didn’t expect was the serious gains in power! I feel like a real racecar driver because of how quick this thing is!

Leah Woo
1998 Toyota Camry




My Corolla used to be the laughing stock of my school, now people think I have some kind of engine swap! Now I’m the one laughing because all I did was install the SLR motorsports performance chip! I’m walking all over the kids with Civics and 240sx’s because of the horsepower and acceleration I’ve gained! I’ve got the ultimate sleeper thanks to the SLR chip!

Brett Madison
2006 Toyota Corolla





I don’t know the first thing about cars, but I do know that the SLR performance chip really put me behind the wheel of one fun ride! I wanted to pep up my car so I ordered the SLR chip and installed it myself, it had really helpful directions. Now I’m cruising through town with some serious power, it feels like I’ve got some real muscle now! I get better gas mileage too, I think the money I’ve saved has already made the chip pay for itself!

2005 Toyota Celica

I read about someone who stuck one in his Acura TL and it drove for about 2 seconds then blew the computer.

Wow, less and fewer oil changes due to a better tune! Who knew a resistor could do that!!!

At the performance shop I worked at some customer had a Acura TL and bought one of these. He had us do a baseline of the car, install the "chip", and do another dyno. He gained zero horsepower. He looked so disappointed.

Just realized two references to people with Acura TL's. Must be an acura owner thing

Doesn't it seem like they had a disproportionately high number of female respondents? Not to mention every respondent had a different model of vehicle and they were mostly grouped by manufacturer?

An Acura TL is what a sissy-man buys when his wife says he can't have a "sports car"

He probably bought the $80 resistor without his wife's permission too

What kinda surprises me is how they can make up all that bullshit and not get sued or something along those lines?

Its one thing when some redneck makes a classified CL ad, but another when a supposed "company" false advertises complete bullshit that is potentially very harmful and does the opposite of what its supposed to. Can't they get sued?

I don't see a disclamer (though I haven't looked that thoroughly) on the site.

You're wrong...

...You've made the assumption that "ghost writers" is plural...

...Judging from what I've read, "ghost writers" should be singular. "A ghost writer".

What about people who write about ghosts? Ghost writers. Plural. Or ghosts that are writing.

I don't see a disclamer (though I haven't looked that thoroughly) on the site.
If it's a Chinese company then that would explain how they avoild getting sued. Think about all the Chinese automakers that make knockoffs of a Rolls Royce and not get sued.
Also, to sue the company making the "performance chip", one would first have to own up to being gullible enough to buy one in the first place.

I love how not matter what type of car it is..it gets 60hp and 60tqs...doesn't matter if it's a 1.3 3 cylinder or a 7.0L V8

Oh and I love the pitch about increased throttle response...I didn't know it could make my right foot operate 40% faster!!

So when someone usually says I've got a chip on my car, I'll ask them if its lays or doritos....

I will now just link them to that site and tell them how much better that SLR chip is.
