Ive never heard of the GF chip but so far there are no tuners available for the 2011s other than i believe the hypertech that only lets you change gear ration and tire size

I thought this was a thread about "girlfriend performance chips".

What he said ^, I'd be very suspicious of any tuners/chips for 2011+ trucks without superchips and diablo sport having a product out.

Default GForce chip WARRING!!!

If you thinking about the GForce chips Please read these reviews http://www.trustlink.org/Reviews/GFo...scom-206391778 They are a scam I have posted a warring please spread this around and we hope they will be taken off this site also.

Hi I ordered a chip from you. My email said it would ship in 1 to 2 weeks, so at the end of the second week I called you 877-599-2447 phone number,when you rep came on the phone I asked him questions about my order and first off , He asked for my zip code and then told me that it would not ship till the 23, then I ask about the email that said it would ship in 1-2 weeks, he started to get very loud and rude. Then he again said it would not ship for 3-4 weeks. So I asked again about the email, so he asked my name, then started to yell at me that it was shipped last wed. So I asked if I was scammed over this order. He then continued yelling at me, so I asked for a supervisor, he then hung up on me. I called back he answered again I then asked for a supervisor, He once again continued yelling at me and said their is no supervisor there and put me on hold, I called back and the same person answered once again he said his name was Terry and his supervisor name was Simon and to email him and hung up again. If this is the way your company dose business I really question weather I feel safe to put this chip on my truck, if in fact I do receive the chip. I have posted this on the web site that is advertising your chips to warm anyone else of how I was treaded, it is a forum for trucks. The call was made at 3:30P.M. MST ( Utah time) on Friday march 9. Not a happy customer Shawn.

I wish the reviews where posted here before I ordered the chip. Its seems that Terry treats the customers very poorly he has been named on the review pages also don't be scamed!! Thanks Shawn!

I can't believe this still comes up after all these years. I remember back when the HEMI first came out these things started popping up. There really needs to be a sticky on this, on every Automotive forum in existence.

This is nothing more than the IAT(Intake air temp) Mod. All it does is trick the computer into running the engine richer. It is nothing more than a resistor and it's something you can do yourself for less than a dollar. However, and this has been debated, any gains (if any)wouldn't be noticeable and all your gonna do is waste more gas.

So please make a sticky, and basically state that any "Chip mod" that has to do with the IAT sensor is a complete bunch of BS. Stay far away guys..

if i were buying a chip for my truck, i would only consider name brands that others have had success with. if the first part of an off brands chip starts with improved mpg, i would be very concerned.

I should have read more before I bought the gforce chip. It hasn't arrived yet, but after reading everything on here and the other site I am tempted not to even open it and return it. Thanks for all the good info guyz, wish I had joined earlier.

old rule of thumb: sounds to good to be true it probably is.

Anything that costs less than $100 will not save me hundreds in gas or add 100 horsepower
