Performance chips?
Anybody have any results/reactions with the performance chips? I am thinking of buying one for my 97 Honda Accord EX.

I can only speak from my experience
I have fitted the Volo chip on two occasions once to a Caddilac SRX and once to a Ford Transit saw no gains either in performance or mpg
I have now removed them where they are now in a draw with four new ones which I purchased at the same time
I hope my comments might help you to save some money
My advice is if you are thinking of chipping go for a full engine remap through the diagnostic port

Thanks- I found a website, http://www.driveaccord.net, and a poster, prepreludesh, has done an excellent job of explaining all about sensors, ratios and why the chips don't work.

I can't imagine how a chip can help you to save fuel, maybe it monitors and tells you where fuel is being wasted?!
