A sponsor GF Chips has a $69.00 chip install with a claim of a 60HP increase bringing out put to 320HP from our stock 260HP. With the GMPP tune you get 30HP for 290HP total with a 10 time price increase but you get to keep your factory warranty. Has any one tried this chip?

These "chips" are actually not chips, just bad ideas. What they do is sit in between the intake air temperature sensor and the CPU, and modify what is reported by the sensor, thus increasing ignition advance.
You will not gain 60HP, 5 is more in the ballpark given the size of the engine, and in some cases, if the ambient air is hot enough, will encounter knock which can potentially destroy the engine, especially in turbo applications. Don't do it.
