I was looking for a performance upgrade and it seems like a chip is the way to go for a quick and easy upgrade. The question is where should i get said chip from? There on ebay for super cheap, advertising that there as good as the $300 counterparts. Whats the lowdown on this? Any info would be great!
no, no, and no...believe me this is one mod you dont want to take the cheap route on. Get a genuine JC Chip for $250 and chalk up the best $250 you ever spent on your car. Ebay you never know what the hell is gonna end up at your door. I would never trust ebay for such an integral part for you car

WOW!! good to know, where did you get your jc chip from?
Everyone is going to tell you not to buy an ebay chip except for the people that have bought a chip from ebay. As far as I can recall (and you could do a search for "Ebay Chip" and confirm) I have heard mostly good things from the people that did buy their chip from ebay. I think I only remember one or two that didn't work. But perhaps I just do not remember correctly.
It would be safer to buy one for the extra money from the manufacturers of the chip or a very reputable site. However, that is not to say that there isn't a good chance that you would end up with a very good copy of the same chip that you want from a fraction of the price. Hopefully one of the members with an ebay chip will speak up to who they bought their chip from. Or do a search for it as I previously stated.
dude, i dont care what anyone says about ebay chips..they dont work the same and will be a waste of $50 bucs.. a opy is exactly that- a copy..and what happens?? it is not a great as the original..thats a fact
