Depends on what your doing with your car, and what years is it? OBD1 or 2? I wouldn't buy a chip for an OBD1 car. Timing advancement and fooling the coolant sensor is mostly all the chip can do.

you could buy everything seperately, like off of ebay used or something.
youll need the wiring harness, eec computer (a9p for automatic, or a9l for manual seem to be the best choices), and the mass air sensor. also the cold air pipe, since yours is a one piece, and the mass air one is a two piece.
you might be able to get everything for around 200.

To be honest, you don't gain lots of power by going with a maf conversion. It's more of a large supporting modification. Later on you can add a bigger camshaft and still maintain great driveability.

Don't get me wrong though, you can modify your engine quite a bit before a camshaft is really needed. I had a 88' convertible (speed density) with heads, intake , throttle body, exhaust done, and removed all emission equipment, and IMO, it drove better than stock. Once I bought this 89' (that has maf already) and put the trickflow stage 1 cam in it, it REALLY woke it up, even with only .500 lift . It has a nice choppy idle and sounds much more mean.
