I believe the gain of up to 60 HP because 0 HP gain fits in that category. I don't believe the 4-7 MPG better, unless it keeps me from pushing on the gas.

Does it come with a supercharger?

Honestly, I've never heard of it, but am already certain that it's nothing but snake oil.

GForce High Performance Chips at Wholesale Prices
this is the url
They have chips for yugos too.......
This isn't even snake oil, it is way beyond that..........

Go with Superchips, just don't expect it to work like a diesel tuner.

Well, wouldn't call it snake oil because there are several changes you can make like tire size but the tuner can be if you expect miracles. I did get about 1.5 MPG back when I got the bigger tires with the 87 tune. Not sure I got anything other then that. At least that I noticed. Did upset me that they charge extra for transmission tuning after their already outrageous price then you have to have a PHd in the field just to tune the transmission after that. Most made it out as if it came with the tuner and was easy to just chance shift points.

I was looking at those too. If they are snake oil, what is the best way to get more horsepower. I already have a mopar air intake.

BTW... just bought my first wrangler on Saturday!!! 2009 Unlimited X!

A super charger, bigger engine, wait for 2012 to come out and trade it in.. I'd say regear but I'll presume your only at stock tires right now..

You will get more noticable power when you decide to put it in 4 lo, where its designed to be driven.

So far, I've added a Borla exhaust, K & N air in the box, a JET stage 2 chip, and am about to add a screamin demon coil with dbl-platinum plugs and DUI live wires. The rise in hp is expected to be 4 to 7, with a possible 1 to 1.5 rise in mpg on road. Other than that, I'm not looking to turn my 09 Sahara into what my 55 Nomad was (or any of the other cars I upgraded in another life). 750s, superchargers, cams/keepers, journal lapping, boring .30 over, special heads, twin nitrous... just doesn't sound like a Jeep I want to maintain. A reasonable amount of increase is warranted depending on what you want to do, but I try to stay on the side of what's sane considering what the vehicle is already capable of. You will find a lot of extremely knowledgeable people on this forum that can turn a Jeep into a Matterhorn climber but won't try and exceed 400hp to do it. Just my $0.02
