Tuning box vs ECU Tune

Has anyone used the Racechip or Gan Tuning box on their car. Seems legit and easy to remove if needed but I’ve heard mixed reviews; although most jBe been good. I have seen some posts though that day they the safety features in the engine will render the box useless over time.

I forgot to mention the AFE Scorcher. It was dynoed with a 38 horsepower gain and 54 torque. Plus I have the AFE Intake. But the Gan looks good as well. I heard the Race chip sucks.

I have a scorcher but haven't installed it yet --- on account of living downtown Toronto with no garage and it being -12 outside lol.

Lots of people liked them though as an interim before they flashed their ECU.

Well being that it’s my daily and it’s new with a warranty, I figured this would be a good option as it is easily removed. Also I saw a you tube video between 2 Elantra sports, one with a Scorcher and one with a Lap3 Tune and the module won. I was surprised.

Manual Boost Controller

Specs:
Color: Black

Vibrant Manual Boost Controller has proven to be one of the easiest and most cost effective way to squeeze more horsepower and torque from your turbocharged vehicle.

The Vibrant Performance design team has developed a lightweight, very compact boost controller that features a unique integrated dial that allows you to precisely set boost and which eliminates the risk of “overboosting” that can occur with other manual boost controllers.

Features
T6061 Billet Aluminum with black anodized finish for corrosion protection.
Removable fittings for servicing and reference line upgrades.
Comes with low pressure check valve for use on MAF equipped cars to prevent stalling at idle.
Large premium grade brass adjustment knob to increase or decrease boost pressure accurately.
Can be mounted nearly anywhere with included mounting bracket.

Hey, how long have you had the Gan Box and what kind of performance gains did you see? Assuming you had it dynoed.

Just came across another tuning box(RSChip) not to be confused with the race chip. Has anyone used this product?

Just curious, have you had a chance to install it? If so, how have you liked it so far?
