GForce Performance Chip. Anyone recommend this?

So I picked up a 2011 Ranger FX4 almost 2 weeks ago, and I have been browsing for aftermarket mods/accessories for it and I stumbled upon this:

http://www.gfchips.com/fordranger.aspx

It seems simple enough, I would just like to know if this is a good idea and if anyone would recommend this. I would like a little bit of an extra kick out of my Ranger, so if this would do the trick I won't think twice.

Thanks!

Waste of money... it's all BS. Click around.. it's all 60HP, 4-7 MPG's... for every vehicle you select. If you want more power, put in a V8.

You're right I didn't even think to do that, thanks! And I am likely going to swap in a V8 in the future. I'm just looking for something to push just a tiny bit more performance out of my 4.0 until the warranty is done in 5 years.

Any recommendations on a V8 swap? Like which engine I should get for the swap.

Thanks!
