Plug into OBDII port under the dash and press some buttons (select tuning options) unplug and your good!

I agree. A chip is a dead end nowadays. Too many variables and if you get it wrong the first time you're up the creek.

A tuner is the way to go. SCT for sure and work with a tune vendor like Wayne and Fred who are cooperative and knowledgable.
