Its possible to actually improve HP with a chip, with no loss in WOT power, with the right programming.

You'll have to switch to Premium fuel. 92+ octane.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

Wouldn't make any difference, as the computer is set for 87 octane.

Ok, then yeah, you have to give them the specs on the program you want.

There are cheaper modifications, that will get you more bang for the buck.

It installs at the computer port behind the passenger side kick panel. you basically clean up the contacts and install the chip.

nothing to it.
