Post Jet or Superchip?

Ok my dad has a 2000 Ford F-250 Super duty V-10 (Gas powered, not diesel) and was thinking about hetting one of those 2 chips i forgot which one he said but one of them said it would give him like a 20-25% increase in horsepower and torque. Are these stats accurate or are they bull? Could my dad expect these kind of boosts from the chip? Also the chip is like $700 which shouldnt be a prob since he does have money but would it be $700 or would there be better mods for the price?:o:

for $700 i'd get a cat-back exhuast system and/or a cold air intake. read this car and driver article on chips.

Attention

For $700 the only way you can get better performance from a computer on a Saturn is with a Greddy e-Manage.

The Saturn PCM is flash like the LT1 and has been since '91, BUT no company has the knowledge of it like they do the LT1.
It's not chippable and no one flashes it. Many people have DYNO tested the JET offering to find it usless.

If you want real computer performance install a piggyback ECU like the e-Manage and have it all dyno tuned to your personal car because every on is unique.
