Chip gimmick??

JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED GF Peformance Chip


Is this just a gimmick or what? Sounds too good to be true.

Yes gimmick. If they had even used reasonable numbers they might be believable but 60hp, roflmao. You just get around 60hp from a Supercharger.

I think that you should be the first to buy it and then report back the results. How about it?

Both. A waste of $. Unfortunately, if you want more hp you have to get a 2012 JK.

yea i figured at much bc I flashed my ECU on my GTI and that gave me +75 hp just because its a turbo and I hold 25 psi now but that was $500. $69 for 60hp on a non turbo seems to be just funny

The 3.6L Pentastar was designed for that capacity too, but I'd wait and see which set up works best. Best not to be a test subject.
