Default Supercharger? We don't need no stinkin' supercharger...

Who needs to pay big $$ for a supercharger when you can go this route?

Toyota Performance Chip - 90+ HP and 25+ mpg

2 in 1 Toyota Performance Chip - 60+ HP and 20 mpg


Looks like for less than $30 I'm cruisin' in style

usually, they are the real deal on obd II vehicles. For obd I, the gains are usually minimal as there is just not that much mapping there.

Some 1995 were OBDII, all were OBDII in 1996. You can look on the sticker of your hood if you aren't sure if your 95 is OBDII.

There is no way that ANY chip can give 90hp on a normally aspirated Toyota engine. OB1 or 2. You will be lucky to see 5hp. It is a scam for sure.

yeah, if it were a "good chip" you'd see some hp. not 90 on an N/A engine unless the factory tune was just super crappy (which i doubt)..... and you'd have to run premium fuel.

I wouldn't put an ebay chip in my lawnmower though(figure of speach guys).. go with a reputable company that has the history. cheap chips are risky...
