no, best advice to you is to get a dyno tune or something or that nature, then you can see from a stock car get about +2 MPG and then anywhere from 15-30hp out of it, and it is tuned properly to your car insted of downloading a program that has been preset on the chip.

A tune on an LS1 car can go a long way, even on a stock car.

The only chips you'll find in LS1 cars usually come in bags and from a convenience store. Just be careful with any dip while driving.

that is about what i figured, these guys were telling me how they bought these chips for $35 and were telling me they could really feel the difference, but before i threw the BS flag, i figured i'd check with some people that knew. thanks guys.

They probably bought the infamous .50 cent radio shack resistor off Ebay for 30 bucks and got ripped off.
