I'm thinking of getting G Force Chip that advertised here. Does it work like they said? Any of our member used it? If anyone using it please let me know if it worth.

...the consensus seems to be that such "after-market" tweeks are not truly useful for fuel economy.

...they do seem to work for bumping up HP (and fuel consumption) however.

The G Force "chip" is a resistor that "spoofs" the intake air temperature sensor to tell the ECU that the intake air is colder than it actually is, and results in a few more degrees of ignition advance. Save your money.

Thumbs down g-force chip

Do not buy this chip its a rip off
here is why:
i ordered the chip after 30 days of waiting, I emailed them ,"they said it was shipped i should receive it. they said "Shipped. 1-1.5 week arrival". its been 3 weeks.
they used to sell these chips for $399.00 and now they sell them for $69.00
maybe its because they want to get rid of them or they are scamming before closing up shop.

Regards
Jag

this chip is not worth it. i tried it and was not happy at all. i did come across volo soft flash programmer. they are for hho systems but carry regular ones as well.look up volo performance.com, model fs3.1 . definitely less power and hit 200 miles before half tank mark (still first tank with this).it is looking promising.

I haven't used the G-Force, but I did try another brand on my '02 Escort a few years ago. I took advantage of the money back offer. Lowered the FE, if I remember correctly about 2-4 MPG decrease.

What kind of results did you get with the FS3?

Why do you want a G-force chip? do you wanna go to drag track?
For fuel consumption it can't do anything.
