Meaning these chips are ineffective. Not what they claim to do.
Thanks AGAIN JFP for taking the time to help me and others. Your opinion is highly valued.

Just remember one simple rule of thumb on making more power with these cars: It is going to cost way more than you think it will, way more.

It's probably cheaper to buy a more powerful car than to add power.

IE: a Box S is 2-3K more than a similar Box but with 50+ more hp and a better suspension and brakes. A sport exhaust on a Box is 2K without install and you get what, 10 hp?

We had a customer that installed a turbo engine out of a wrecked 996TT into a 986 Boxster; by the time he was done, he had a tire shredding monster that actually cost him more than it would have if he had gone to the dealer and purchased a loaded new 996TT. Sometimes the view just ain't worth the climb..............
