Thoughts on Performance Chips???

I'm thinking of installing a GForce Performance Chip, in my TJ, and was wondering if anyone in the forum has some ideas as to; is this worth while, or is it just another gimmic?

Save your money for something worthwhile. None of the snake oil claims work on TJ's? And neither do CAI's.

Adding just a chip really wont do much by it's self. A few years ago I installed a Jet Stage 2, new hi-flow exhaust header, converter,and cat back system. Also an AEM intake system on my 2000 TJ with a 6 cyl.
It helped, but not to the degree I expected for the $1800 it cost me. My next step was to upgrade my injectors. The combination of all the above items does give moderatly better performance. Of course I also need to run 93 octane.

If I had to do it all over, I would drop a stroker in. Just hard to do when I hadve less than 140,000 on it.
