Ok, so check this out:
At first I thought this was an error on their website. It looks like they have the same language for every chip and just <insert vehicle make/model> throughout their boiler plate text. I've used tuner chips in the past on my Mustangs, but did not expect to see them so soon for something as advanced as the Volt. So I called them up and they confirmed this is a real product! They said they are making some final improvements and they will be ready to ship in about 4wks. They said there will be a news release as well.
They claim the chip will improve horsepower and gas milage while reducing emmisions. So I asked them if that meant the chip only helps out when the ICE is running? They said no, that it also improves performance in EV mode and that they're working on several EV chips besides the Volt! I'm skeptical, but curious. Any volunteers willing to be the guinee pig and test this
I'm particularly interested in what WOT thinks and has to say about this mod. WOT? I'm not sure I'd risk my warranty.
