$69 Ford Focus Chip?

So on the homepage, right below the sign in section, there is an ad for a $69 Chip that claims to add 50 hp, msrp $400.00 WOW that is epic. Any one else noticed this? Any one else thing that this seems to good to be true.

thoughts, comments.

So this didn't go the way I was thinking.

.. I was going to use this terrible ad to ask what the best way to reprogram the ECU would be/ when would be the best time to flash it. I know a very small portion about piggybacks, and full resets, and I have read other threads about this subject, but I have no idea what I’m doing and was just hoping that some of the people who have fine tuned their cars could chip in.

Dude, really? No such thing as cheap hp. Might as well give me the $70, I'll put it to better use.
