Chips

I have a 2000 v6er w/ cai and my friend told me to research in chips. I did and i found some tempting offers like $40 for a gain of about 20-40 hp, or 60+ hp gain for about $300.
i had no idea that chips were such a great deal. If anyone has some experience plz let me know
i am am willing to pay below $100.

haha, ya, that's called a SCAM! the cheap crap off of e-bay doesn't work and will usually harm your engine (resistors). for brand name chips that actually work, look at SCT or something, they usually run $200-$400 and give you bout 10-20hp i think..., depending on what you already got. if a company says you'll see 60 extra horses, its a joke.


anybody else have more to add/correct me?

Ok that was a stupid question i never really trusted ebay. i did find out that the top of the line chips come down to the SCT XCalibrator, and the predeator. i am interested in the mustangtuning.com one (the x cailibrator) they are selling it for $299.99.
Gains on stock GT's around 17 RWHP and 20 ft-lbs of torque. More on V6 and S/C Cobra.
Remember, these are stock numbers. Gains will be higher on modified vehicles.


Though there appear to have no garentees or warrentys. i am considering it what do guys think...

yeah, don't do it!!

you can find used chips for $70.00. I'd go with those.

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.

If you're willing to use 91+ octane, you'll get between 10-12 hp.

A better deal is underdriver pulleys for the HP, or a DeMolet intake.
