Send me the $80 and I'll help you get more HP than any chip. Seriously, there aren't any chips out there that will work on a G, every one is a scam.

Before you make any more silly purchases ask about them here. A few of us are left here and are active that have been around long enough to help you make these kinds of decisions.

And if you ask about the Turbonator I'll ban you for life lolol.
Due to your negative response based on a bias opinion i knew that this was to be expected, but here's the thing.... You can't reject everything just because it doesn't work the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time. If this was the case Thomas edison wouldn't have quoted I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." To say they're aren't ANY chips that will work or ever will work is a very bold statement i disagree with due to the fact that technology is always advancing and evolving. When you look at the pros and cons from my perspective there's really no risk or lost here. If i did get the results that this particular chip describes, then i've gotten exactly what i payed for. If it happens to flop then i send it back, but at least i attempted to try it for my own personal experience so that i will be able to let others become aware of its faulty presentation with that particular chip. Oh and far as a Tubonator is concerned, that's completely out of the question for me..

Might as well get 3 for that procharged combo.

OP, we've been working on G's for a while and a fuel tuner isn't enough for the G's.

Dude take your foot out of your mouth now. Your post fails in a lot of ways. First I quoted it here so you could re-read it and tell me where it was negative or biased. I clearly stated that no chips have worked so far and that's a fact, not bias. Don't you think that out of the tens of thousands of members on Driver, many of them enthusiasts, if there was a chip that worked someone wouldn't have found out about them and posted that here. Not just us but performance magazines, websites, or other media that deal with hundreds of thousands of people looking for better performance out of their vehicles. Or are you "the one" who will make a miraculous find and locate the unicorn that's supposedly out there? Nave at best but whatever. I did say if you bought it send it back and that's exactly what you posted you'll do if it flops. And show me where in my post I said "To say they're aren't ANY chips that will work or ever will work is a very bold statement ". Here you're just putting words in my mouth to make your case stronger and that **** doesn't fly here, all it does is destroy any shred of credibility you might have built up here in the 2 months you've been around.

You asked for our take on chips and I gave mine, no need to chastise me because my opinion is different than yours so methinks you need to grow up a bit. And why the hell would anyone spend money on a mod that "temporarily" works lol? I do thank you though for the morning amusement, it's been a great way to start my Friday!! You perfectly embody the FPFQ deterioration of many car enthusiast forums and for that I will not thank you.....

I have an 06 coupe and it's my first car. I want to get into working on cars, and was wondering what the best mods are to start off with. On the internet I found a cold air intake that I'm thinkig of installing.Is that a good idea to start off with and how difficult is it to install for someone with very limited knowledge cars? Any help is really appreciated.

Hi Venom. All the guys at the car meet might think a CAI is a good upgrade, but it's been dyno proven not to be on our cars. It just sucks hot air. The OEM intake is actually pretty great as is! What you can do for a little more intake noise is get a Z tube and a plenum spacer. Those are all pretty simple and fun to do, and will give you mid range Pep.

Try those out!

So its been about 23 days since i've purchased the power tune performance chip and i must say that theres definitely some changes to how the G operates. I can tell that my exhaust sounds more aggressive, the g drives alot smoother, and it does feel faster. For these reasons, i've decided to keep the chip along with any other mods i do next. In my honest opinion, it was well worth the money for what i paid for it despite what anyone else says or thinks.

Thanks for the advice. One more thing; I was thinking about getting this exhaust. Is it worth getting and is that a good price for exhaust?

There is an Invidia Gemini for sale on our marketplace here that you should check out first. You can find plenty of Ebola videos on YouTube showing that exhaust.

It's always best to hear it in person, if you can head to a local car meet or something.

Borla makes a great exhaust for the coupe but Urban has excellent advice. The Gemini is a good choice as well and who cares if it's used, exhausts don't wear out like a lot of parts do.

03 g35 coupe 6mt

ok so in the spirit of newbieness, so from what I've seen everyone saying stay away from the CAI and get a z tube. So what about the stillen z tube kit, or any better options? Also what's yall opinion on manifolds, cause people on YouTube be raving about kinetx but I've read some stuff here that day it's completely garbage just looks. Any thoughts? (Blue dream please don't wreck me 😂😂&#128514
