In looking at the few, (2) chips that Ive seen out there for the beloved FoxBody, which is best? Jet or Superchips???

Neither, in my opinion. The so-called performance chips for the Fox just advanced timing a bit or so I've heard. Same thing you can do at the distributor.

But, I've got a Hypertech chip for a '91 manual that I removed out of my car if you're still dead set on it.

Yeah I got a hypertech about 10 years ago and it was a total waste of $$. I didnt pick up anything on the 1/4 mile at all. Id put the $ you were going to spend on the chip toward a real performance mod

Take that chip off and run the codes.

Like Need said remove that chip and see how she runs. Check your timing and bump it up some.

Are you running 12* with the chip cause if that chip said KB on it it could've been for a supercharged application in which the timing could have been retarded some for boost.

advance timing till it pings then back off 2*

check the KOEO and KOER codes

the motor is only going to rev so high with stock heads and intake..hopefully the swapped the stock valve springs out for ones that match the cam when they put the cam in,or else your valves will probably float @ like 5k rpm lol

Well i took the chip and it actually feels like I lost a lil top end....lol but it does sound like they did a legit cam swap with lifters and valve springs, so thats a plus....im looking at a cobra intake for it.....would it be best to do the 24# injectors along with it?
