Power chips are generally garbage. If you look at what they actually do (change the air/fuel mixture, retard timing, etc.), you'll know that unless they are a complete ECU replacement the ECU will eventually re-adjust.

A universal "chip" is a sure sign of fail. Gains on custom programmed chips on cars without turbos are very minimal, if anything.
