GForce Chips, anyone try one?

Hey guys, I see these advertised on Allpar.com, website GFChips.com, just wondering if anyone has used one of these on a Challenger R/T. Thinking of trying one on mine. Any input appreciated. Thanks!

I have never used them, but I think you would be better off with a Predator. you can do more with a Predator than this plug and play chip. I like how they list it for the 2011-12 Challengers, wonder if they have even tested it on one since code can't be cracked. Just my .02 cents on it.

i know for a fact. the picture shows a ROM looking chip device with numerous pins. But the instructions say its just a two wire connection to the IAT. All the device is is a .50 cent resistor that changes the IAT reading to make the computer think the intake charge is cooler than it really is so it adds some fuel and timing. that is NOT the way to tune a car. and theres no way in hell it will add 60 horsepower or increase mileage
