Default performance chip for the hardbody?!

yea no id leave that alone, a hardbody making 300 hp would have MAJOR mods including forced induction.

a little sketchy? 4 times the mileage and twice the horsepower over stock from a $20 chip

skip it. look into basic bolt ons like an intake and some headers.

Please don't. Chances are that doesn't do a thing but advance your timing a bit, making you run premium and not gain much if anything. Bolt ons, or turbo.

isnt that just one of them deals that you replace the intake temp sensor with a little resistor? id definitely steer clear of that one homie

Lol I think it's funny that it says " our product will not affect your engine or electrical in any way" does that mean the hp too??

Those are all over ebay for my dodge among other cars. I dont know much about nissan engine sensors, but more than likely it is a 10 cent resistor in a pretty box, that you connect to yout inlet air temp sensor ( if nissans have this). You unplug it then jump the wires with this. This is how it is done on dodges. And no it does not work.
