Default No more threads about performance chips on ebay.....


If you're looking for a performance chip for your saturn, you can end your search right here. There are no performance chips for saturn. The "chips" or "piggy backs" or whatever other name these things are being called on EBAY is a rip off.

^^^EXACTLY!

Here's some info I found on why you shouldn't mess with anything that tries fooling the computer into giving it more fuel than it needs.

The unit that I have had the best results from is available from Innovate Motorsports. This method looks at the oxygen/unburned combustibles in the engine’s exhaust and then the unit supplies an air/fuel mixture reading; the readings are very accurate...
