    Question GFORCE Performance chip??? Does it really work?

    I came across this website that claims to add up to 60 more hp with a chip that is connected via 2 wires that plug into the IAT sensor. The unit is then able to reprogram the ECU thus improving your car's performance (That statement was copied straight from the web site) and all this for only $69, which makes me think it is a scam but then again you never know. So I was wonder if anyone has tried it or even looked into it before??
    I am new to this forum so I cant post the link to the website but if you Google the GFORCE Chip I am sure you'll find it.

    Definitely a scam. Gains like that only happen with forced induction via boost pressure. Don't waste your money.

    Re: GFORCE Performance chip??? Does it really work?

    From the OP's description it sounds like it's just a resistor that is wired into the IAT?? Kind of like just doing IAT sensor relocation (free mod) and tricking the ECU into thinking the engine is getting cooler air than it is in reality and thus richenning the AFR. Obv a scam since there is no way you'll get 60hp from this... you would be lucky to get 6hp... peak. And if anything fuel mileage would be worse I would think...

    If you want real WOT HP, and better gas mileage just save your money and get a custom tune from a reputable shop on this site imo

    Re: GFORCE Performance chip??? Does it really work?

    According to cadillac tech to whom is a friend stated these are a scam and will do major harm to the engine.He said all these do is fool the ECM into having the car run in the cold mode all the time. This allows the engine more air and more fuel.(ever notice how much better your car does in the morning) this is because it's in the cold mode. He stated over a very short time there are major internal damage to the motor. Once this is done it voids your warranty immediately and all repairs are one you. Remember all this is stored in the computer, so they know what you did. This is poison, stay far away!
