60hp increase.. you get that sort of increase with a stg3 tune that requires hardware

Hasn't this been covered dozens of times? It's bull. A chip won't remap your ECU for 60hp. Sure would be nice tho ha.

Remember people... you get what you pay for. If you could buy a 60 hp chip for your car for 60 bucks then everyone would be tuned and every Saab tuner would be ****ting their doors.
