Gforce f150 chip questions...

I just bought a 2007 f150 5.4l lariat and I have been looking online at aftermarket parts (headlights, trim stuff, etc) and in my search this gforce chip came up and the site selling it http://www.gfchips.com/fordf150.aspx states an increase of 60hp anywhere from 4-7mpg increase and 20-45% lower co emissions so my question is has anyone ever used one of these and do they actually work and is it worth my time the chip is listed at 399.99 but at this time it's on sale for $69 also if it's not worth the time are there any affordable chips to help with gas Milage and with possible HP increase. Thanks everyone for any input you give.

69 dollars for a 10 cent resistor in a box. if you want a chip, get a real programer with a custom tune that actually works, but no tune/chip/ programer will get you 60hp or close to it.

If it seems to good to be true...

That about sums it up.

Questions About "TUNES"? Read This!

You can purchase programmers and custom tunes from the following

Power Hungry Performance.......Edge Products
Troyer Performance ......SCT products
VMPTUNING ..........SCT products
5-Star Tuning..........SCT products
Henson performance .......SCT products
Tunes By James.......SCT products
Blow By Racing.......SCT products

I've used three of these tuners tunes and two different brands of programmers.......I want the best for my truck......not the cheapest most economical solution........

sorry to copy and paste but everyone needs to be aware of the scam Gforce runs. If you order it and change your mind, make sure you at least install (or make it look like you did) it before returning it. read their terms and conditions. installed = full refund, uninstalled = 25% restocking fee. ("Money-Back Guarantee"!) I lost over $25 in shipping and the restocking fee because I bought then researched. live and learn, I'm the fool this time.
