The power gain will be different depending on what kind of car/truck you have and what kind of motor is in it? I personally would not recommend chipping a car, especially imports, as the chips max out parameters of the car that are not supposed to be maxed out thus greatly shortening the life of the engine. The only thing I would recommend is to chip is a diesel, and only if you have done prior work to it, such as turbo, injectors, exhaust, etc. then it is proper to retune the car/truck and a way to do that is to chip it (from a good reputable company such as banks)
