99% of the so called "chips" are a single resistor that is used to fool the ECM into thinking the engine is cold so that it stays in open loop - waste of money & time.

When I first bought my Sidekick I started to search the web to find out more about the car that I now owned.

I too read about these chips.

A short time later I joined the forums, and it was here that it appeared that the consensus was that these chips were a waste of money.

And so, I am throwing my lot in with fordem. A waste of money.
