Perfomance Computer Chip

I have a 94 318is that is bone stock with no intake or exhaust mods. I understand that I could squeeze out an extra 10 to 15 hp and torque with a computer chip upgrade. I have looked at Turner's E36 318i/is 1992-1995 Turner Motorsport Conforti Performance Chip for $250.00, Powerchip's PowerchipGold 93 for $390.00 and Dinan's Performance Engine Chip for $200.00 Is this a worthwhile upgrade? Will I notice an increase in performance and gas mileage? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

What the chip is primarily designed to do is to remove the speed govenor, raise the RPM limited, and change the fuel mapping for optimal performance. You will probably notice a bit of difference by itself, but the chips work best when combined with other mods such as intake's, exhaust, underdrive pullies.
