One of their feedback claims...


"In a completely stock 99' Dodge Neon sport, I gained ten horses and went from 34-37 wheel horsepower to 44-47 wheel horsepower (using a G-Tech Pro performance meter). I have also noted (when I drive responsibly) a gain in gas mileage. I also lost a full second off my Quarter-mile times; from 16.8 to 15.8 and probably could have done better with more time with the G-Tech."

It's junk. Just look at the comments by they have on their site. If they make it sound too good to be true...it is.

yes I have.


Oh wait no....No I haven't

You see, I am not clinically retarded, just technically retarded, and so I had enough sense to steer clear of useless consumer products which drives it sales using flashing graphics and fake consumer testiomnials.

I wasn't saying you are retarded...I was saying I am. Technically, not clinically.

Why are you being so defensive?
