:driving:I'm currently researching this topic and I'm hoping someone can help me select the right type. I would like to squeeze a little more power. I've already installed a short ram intake from Takeda and a catback from DC sports. I'm reading that some chips work with gains up to 36hp , others do nothing and some can reduce the horsepower by 10.

Agreed. You can however get a throttle controller. Not really the same thing, but its definitely fun to play with and if you leave it in eco mode it'll help with the mpg's.

Alright guys thanks for your input, I did have this discussion with Bob from versaspeed this morining and he also felt that those chips wouldn't yeild any positive results. I also discussed the throttle controller but It doesn't appeal to me. Bang (hp) for the buck I'll settle with the intake and exhaust upgrades for now.

How can they have a chip for every single car made? Doesn't seem legit

Snake oil people. "special offer for limited time" $69 for a chip that promises the moon? There have been burns like this crap before.

all those chips are crap. If your serious do as many real bolt ons for now, even get some new custom work done, Then find a local shop for a dyno, maybe if they research enough you could start a flash for versas.

Nope these chips work. I have used them before. They custom program the chip for the car. That is why they can offer so many models. It is a ten minute installation. I got 10% more horsepower and 20% more gas mileage with my chevy.

They advertise that the 2012 sedan will get a boost to 115 H.P. and get about 20% better gas mileage.

They have a MONEY BACK GUARANTY.

These chips DO work.

if you get one of these chips do a before and after dino run so we can see the gains (or loss) that these chip make. I am interested in anything that can boost up my hp since the handling is right where I want it, I contacted gfchips a few weeks ago but they didnt have anny "proof" as to what there chips do they just said that there custemers have found a difference but I need some kind of proof before dropping that much money.

The GF "chip" is a resistor, that's it. If you open the box you might have one with a chip inside. The only issue is that the chip isn't connected. There is no possible way you can connect a "chip" with two wires and have it get power, analyze what it detects from those same two wires AND alter the performance of an ECU over the same two wires.

A simple resistor can, it's an old trick that make the ECU think your engine is running lean.

I just got a performance chip for my 2009 versa from a company called powertune. I was not expecting much when I bought it and it's just ok, no crazy increase in HP but it does give it more pep. If you want a little more kick then I'd recommend it but don't expect to gain a ton of hp. The company also put together reviews on their site from customers. Some just talking about it and some doing 0-60 tests with and without it. power tune performance chip review
