Nope there is no "chip" for the 7th gens those will not work, from what I read they basically (if they even do anything at all) tell the computer your pushing the gas pedal down further then you actually are (ie:if your pushing the pedal down 50% it tells the ECU your pushing it down 75% ) which is silly because it's a lot cheaper (read: free) to actually push the gas pedal further with your foot. In short don't waste your money

To answer your question, no it doesn't work. As for any other questions you might have, place it in the search box. Theres a tap up top called search. You can also pm your moderators.

Use your money to get a legit TUNE on the motor! 99.99999% of those "eBay performance chips" are absolute garbage. Take your ride to a real tuner shop WITH AN ACTUAL DYNO and get it tuned.
