  1. Good morning ,
    I have 2012 Camry with a 2.5 4 cylinder which is our daily driver. We own a truck and a Chevelle so we wanted something super reliable and decent on fuel . On a recent road trip through the Rockies mountains the Camry was very comfortable and handled surprisingly well but the power was lacking even with a tank of super unleaded fuel. I want more power and torque without effecting the cars reliability.

    Is a chip the way to go and what else can be done to improve power. I have checked with local Toyota dealers here in lower mainland British Columbia and I am greeted with blank stares and no solutions.

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Hello,
      I would recommend the stage 2 performance chip and a cold air intake to help with that issue.
      See the chip here:
      See the intake here:
      This combination will offer 15-25 Horsepower gain, 13-14 Extra Ft. Lbs. of Torque, 2-4 MPG Increase, Faster Acceleration, Better Throttle Response, Smoother Engine Idling.

  2. Hi, thanks for this post. I have a short question, do you think that using ECU file will effectively increase my car performance?
    thanks in advance for any support
    regards, Kenny

    1. Hi, the chip’s processor on the performance chip is better on the stage 3 performance chip on most of the chips we’ve tested. That’s the one to go with. It increases the power and smoother acceleration while burning fuel more effectively and efficiently. You gain at lease 1 or 2 MPG increase in fuel.

  3. I’m looking for a chip for my Hyundai Genesis 80 sedan 5.0 L v 8 . I was told put in a cold air intake would not help I was wondering if you have a chip for my vehicle
