Default Performance chip

Has anyone put one of those "G FORCE" chips in their car? and do they really add to the mpg and HP? are they worth the time and money?

I'd get a real tune, although if you have no mods a mail order tune or canned tune will show improvement. Predator has a canned tune that you load up by yourself and works ok. The more you've done to the car, the more sense a real tune makes.

I put a Jett chip in my C-5 years ago, couldn't notice much difference.

There are some pretty easy gains to be made on the C6. The LS3 is very conservatively tuned from the factory. It's easy to squeeze 10+ HP and similar torque gains without being very aggressive on the A/F ratio or running on the edge of detonation. I've looked less at the LS2 and LS7, but understand that they respond positively to a simple tune too.
