Im sure it will add up to 20HP and lb/ft torque, but are those minimal increases worth running premium and $250? Not to me!

Yes they increase power...mostly by changing spark and fuel curves...but to run more advance, you need to run premium fuel. If the power is worth it, then go for it.

I've heard people buy JET stuff and have their car run great afterwards, but then I've heard people have their car run like shit.

I'd personally spend the extra $100 and get a Hypertech programmer.

Do not, under any circumstances, do any business with autopartswarehouse.com. Absolutely horrifying service.

As far as the chip goes, I wouldn't do it.
