Guys don't install that crap on your cars. That's not a chip: it's a box with a resistor inside it; you wire it up to your IAT sensor, it tricks the engine into thinking the air is colder (therefore more dense) than it is, and it just dumps more fuel in, making it run rich as all hell. All you'll get is worse gas mileage, a black rear bumper and no visible power gain.
If you want a chip, buy a proper eprom; yes it costs 200 bucks or so, but that's because someone actually took the time to tune the fuel maps instead of splicing a resistor and two wires inside a box.
how much of an increase in hp are you going to get from a quality chip for a 318?
