Like I've said before:

It's like what a snake oil remedy salesman does. If you make
a great pitch without any backup, people will buy it just to see
what the hypebole is about. After they buy the product, they'll
tell themselves and friends, i.e. it must be better because they've
spent their money. Then they'll suck their friends in too. Who
would ever admit that they've wasted money and look like a fool?
Two or more fools are better than one, right, because you're
no longer by yourself?

Can you think of an easier way of making money than by "playing"
like in the movie Matrix on your PC and changing code without
doing testing to verify your results? There have been a lot of
performance chip guys over the last 15 years with sophisticated
test equipment that have tried to make improvements over
the Porsche stock chip without problems, e.g. pinging and
driveability. Andial racing (www.andial.com) can't be wrong
about performance chips too or are they? Furthermore, how
can anyone make a whole family of performance chips tuned
for each UNIQUE mod without testing for each mod. Let's be
real now!

Hey, we all need a little snake oil from time to time to make
our cars FEEL better!

Have Fun
