Engine Chip?

Does anyone have experience with putting engine chips in their car? Does it really improve MPG/horsepower?

usually some sort or resistor that may trick your car into thinking it needs more or less fuel depending on what one you get get. Problem is our cars aren't stupid and see the change and make the proper adjustments. Buy a flashpro

what mine did was trick the intake air temp sensor into thinking the air was warmer than it really was so the ECU would try to take in more air to accomodate the "warmer" (less dense) air.
