If you want real performance, never look at ebay unless it's a used real part.

ROTL.... You should message the seller telling him that since you've removed your hood, you have already got a +75HP gain. And that his chip's fake.

You know what would prolly really get the seller confused is if you got a baseline dyno and one with like 25-50 more hp and send it to him and say that it was the best 25 dollars you ever spent and ask why he charges so little.lol
