No one is going to spend money with a company putting out claims like that.

True, true, but turbo, I think, is a different story. Tough to get big HP changes on an NA engine by just tuning timing/fuel curves, especially if you still plan on running regular octane. Shooting from the hip, maybe 10-15 hp on an NA engine. Crazy to think I'd void my warranty for 10-15 hp, but everyone is different. Whether you'd actually have engine problems, chances are pretty slim but ...

I'd have a hard time believing 60HP though, without other supporting mods (CAI, exhaust).
Oh c'mon. You see the asterisks behind those 60hp and 10% mpg- they are defined at the bottom of the page. Those values where pulled from other vehicles. Any company using these tactics are shady regardless.

Mmm ... I think it's a pretty good argument if you are starting from a baseline of no hardware changes, just the chip. Not so much that the factory couldn't have theoretically tuned for more power, but given considerations such as durability, octane/driving condition variance, emissions, etc., I think the manufacturer is in the best position to determine the programming for the factory hardware.

That said, I agree the factory tunes are on the "safe side" with respect to emissions and warranty issues.

I just recieved a letter from the Deputy District Attorney of the Orange County District Attorney's Office, Consumer Fraud Unit, regarding G Force. They obtained my address from G Force while serving a search warrant during a law enforcement raid/investigation at their facility. I had returned an un-opened G Force chip for a refund - which never came. They found my refund request and returned product.

Included in the DA correspondence was an in-depth questionnaire which made it abundantly clear that G Force was selling nothing of value and simply taking their customers for a ride. The questions clearly indicated that there is no computer software in the chips, they are generic, are not Dyno tested, and do not perform any of the improvements promised. A raid and confiscation of all computers and documentation by the Orange County Consumer Fraud Unit speaks volumes to me as to the authenticity of the company and their products.

With the help of the DA's office, I received credit for my purchase from my cc company. I hope they put these folks out of business - no telling how many people have lost money; or worse, had their auto's damaged by G
Force's Half-Baked Chips. This was my experience with G-Force, others may vary. As always, buyer beware.

Hope this helps.

the key is "without any drawbacks"

hacking the ECU is all fine and dandy to me if you're unlocking factory options or reprogramming stuff to fit your tires, etc. If you're looking for horsepower and economy, it's mostly a waste of time. Especially in a wrangler. Even the real programmers only net you 10-20 hp for the cost of a warranty and any potential issues. mostly for bragging rights. $0.02
