it does cause decrease performance, particularly when the engine is cold. simply disconnect it. mine has been disconnected for a month now. my MPG's have been bouncing between 15.5 - 17.5 mixed driving.

Do you still get a check engine light?Mine keeps sending a bad code to the cpu and triggers the CEL and I have to keep clearing it with my chip.

yep, once you find the connection, it doesnt' take but a few seconds. the first thing you will notice is when the engine is cold, you will notice more power. some people, like myself, have gotten an MPG improvement.
