read the reviews.....not good. most say shipped fast.


rec'd "chip"; not a chip at all-hope it works.


Not a chip just a 53 cent resitor to jumper your IAT sensor

Fast shipping.. Item wasn't what we thought it was

I took the part to 2 dodge dealerships they stated it was not a perfomance chip

easy transaction.Very high with shipping cost!wow!$6.95 to mail a 41cent letter

Just came home from a trip to Sacramento California, wanted to test out my Jet Stage II chip and I tracked mileage out there with the chip installed, then took the chip out and drove home without it. Plain fact on mileage alone the chip is not worth it.

It does give you a better hole shot but does not make any difference in average miles per gallon on a long trip.

How fast were you driving. Mine at 55 is at 2000 rpms. I thought it would be a lot lower but I think when the MDS kicks in that is should be around 1500 to 1600 and would really see 18 mpg.

I bought one off ebay for 8 bucks including shipping to see what it was. It's just a resistor that plugs into the air intake sencor plug. Don't do anything for mileage but did get more snap and throttle response.

I did not track my RPM's so I cannot address that issue. As far as MPG is concerned there was no noticable difference.

However, today when I stepped on the gas pedal I did notice the lose of power from a dead stop compared to when the chip was installed. The difference is VERY noticable and is enough to cause me to re-install when I get the time.

I can do some RPM measurements if you have a specific comparison you are looking for, I have a road trip planned to the Grand Canyon on the 19th.
