Is JetChip worth it?

Hey guys! I was searching the web for a chip and came across JetChip. Is it worth it? I wish I could get Power FC, but my because has DBW in his 03' Celica GTS. It's for his car, not mine seeing that no good deal has come across for me, but I still gotta keep hopin'. Also, will Power FC ever be available on DBW Celicas???

I have no answer for you about when/if the PFC will be out there for 03-04 Celi's. Believe me, I wish they made one now. It'd make my car buying decision a whole lot easier at this point.

I can tell you that the Jet Chip probably works... for about ten minutes. The problem with all the piggyback chips isn't that they don't work... it's that the stock ECU overrides them right away. That's true for any piggyback chip you toss on, regardless of brand of quality.

I've even heard that all they do is slap a sticker on your ECU and they're done. Our cars are pretty picky when it comes to this kind of thing, I'd probably just get the Power FC instead.

i wouldn't trust jet chips at all. from other cars using jet chips i have heard that jet chips have just rebadged the factory chip and yielded no gains at all...

I can't speak from experience, but from reading what others have posted about it. They said it is absolutely worthless and does nothing for our cars. The PFC would be a good route or even an e-manage.
