If it's not tunable then i wouldn't bother, generic chips can gain but can also lose depending on the car.

they do make gains, not huge but noticeable, they aren't tuneable so its a set and forget system but for the price compared a 'tuneable' unit + dyno time, its not a bad purchase.

Same year, and same model car wont necessarily have the same ECU code. If you decide to buy it, at least double-check before you hand over any cash.

Personally, I wouldn't bother with it for $200....money is better spent elsewhere.
