    Performance chip

    Purchased a new 2012 SRX a year ago and just started reading this forum. Saw an ad for a chip that will enhance the performance and mileage on our SRX. Has anyone installed this chip ($69.00) and gotten any benefit? Herb

    stay very far away! checkout 'ripoffreport' about the company...
    IMO, the 3.6 doesnt need to be chipped. I wont make that determination for you tho.
    Actually, I think someone will speak up that you CANT chip the SRX because the computer is protected. All that $69 thing does is fake out the airflow values, I think.

    The only performance Tuning for the SRX is Trifecta Tuning. About 18 Hp and 20 Tq at the wheels. A bit more on the 3.0. More aggresive shifting in Sports Mode too, if you so desire. I'll be Tuning mine once the snow is gone!

    Can't wait to hear about your results. Do you know anyone else who has tried it? Approx. cost? I tried checking their website but I didn't have permission to continue so I want to know a little more before I get "permission'. thanks in advance for your reply.

    Re: Performance chip

    Those chips are a joke, they are just resistors or boxes that modify the data coming from the sensors before it gets to the ECM (jetchips is an example of this). You do NOT want the ECM being told it's 10*F outside when the actual air temp is 90*F, you'll have major problems, maybe even blow an engine.

    You need a real tune that actually modifies the code inside the ECM, which is what we do.

    Remember, GM can spend a billion dollars trying to add 1mpg to a car platform. If just $69 would have done the same thing, I think they would have already put it into the car and saved the billion.
