Just stick to dynojet cmd , poweraxel, seoulful racing, or turboxs reflash. All have been proven to make 20-40 more whp depending on supporting mods. Look around the forums a bit there's tons of info available.

I'm guessing you're talking about this:
HYUNDAI GENESIS GF Peformance Chip

Total BS, not worth even $69. I looked into something similar for my Mercedes a few years ago, as far as I know it just makes the car run lean, no real performance enhancement. When it comes to cars, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Also, take a look at this:

What you are looking for does not exist for this car. End of story. Goodnight.

However, there are tunes that you can get for your car that are easy to program.

It's best to ignore those kind of chips they mess with your A/F ratio and can eventually cause you alot of problems if your looking for under 500 look into a Dynojet CMD. Everything else is gonna be upwards of 600.

These are vendors I recommend. PM me if you think differently.

this guy shouldn't touch nitrogen or the CMD, just give money to PA and call it a day. Nitrogen is for people who know about cars, or they will blow their engine up.

yes and no. As you see in that RL link, any vehicle from any year has a chip avaliible for it. If they can make money off of suckers, they will. That is also proof that they aren't vehicle specific nor will do any good. But the old school 'chipping your ECU' days are gone, companies still like to prey on those with limited knowledge about cars or those that "used to know about cars" buy using the word chip to sell their crap.

http://www.gfchips.com/bugattiveyron164.aspx That is right, chips for a bugatti veyron.

/thread

If you asked if hey sold chips for your power wheels, they would probably say yes and charge you $200 for a "custom chip" and give the a box with components in it connected to nothing.

If a company is selling a product that has the word chip in it, you probably don't want it anyway.

If you want to laugh at "Chips". go here: Performance Engine Super Chips ECU Power Racing Car Chip Tuning Flash Chips

it doesnt matter what car you click on. Ford Pinto, to Ferrari, every chip adds up to 60 hp. for only $70!

Default ECU Perfomance Chips

Does anyone have any insight to these? It seems like it's almost too good to be true. Two of these have money back guarantees, but will these mess up your car?

betterperformancenow
gfchips
autochipsdirect

(sorry, can't post any links at this time) - but just go to these pages and look under hyundai genesis coupe and then ecu performance chips
