Default is this BS or not?

I have been searching the internet and came across this chip. If this chip worked like it is supposed to then I would have as much power as a 99-04 mustang GT right? So do you guys think it is just BS or not. I have found it on several websites and several reviews for it so I really don't know what to think.

Unless your car came with six degrees of timing advance, like mine, I don't see how you could gain 50hp from that junk.

Venom 400 systems are huge BS. Here's an example of what it does. When you put ur pedal down 25%, it makes your car react as if you put it down say 50%. There are absolutely zero power gains at WOT. It just makes ur car think the gas is down further than it really is until its floored.

I've heard the same negative things about it--not worth the $$. If you really want a chip, finish your mods and give SCT (superchips) a call. They can burn you one for your exact setup, or go w/ a twEECer and you can change it all as you do your mods.....

I've also heard that its a load of crap. For the money though you could prob get a tune and a chip burnt for a small extra fee. I know LaRocca's was going to dyno, tune, and burn a custom chip for my friends 99GT for $600 and they would reburn it for extra mods any time for $50 bucks (or something like that).
