Question PERFORMANCE CHIP?

HELLO GUYS! I WAS LOOKING AROUND AND I CAME ACROSS A WEBSITE SELLING PERFORMANCE CHIPS. I WAS WONDERING WHAT YOU GUYS THOUGHT OF THEM? DO THEY WORK? OR STRAIGHT UP BULL****? LOL

FORD MUSTANG 1989-2010

I HAVE A 2000 V6 AND ONLY MOD SO FAR IS A CAI. BEGINNING OF AUGUST I WILL HAVE MY DUAL EXHAUST INSTALLED (HOPEFULLY!)

THANKS FOR THE HELP!

Re: PERFORMANCE CHIP?

You said it, straight up bull****! lol.

I'd go with a handheld tuner with custom tunes specifically for your car.
Not the off the shelf "pre tuned" tuner, it sucks.

With a personally customized tuner, you can make your bolt on mods (exhaust, CAI, udp's) more effective, compensate for gear changes, and seriously firm up your tranny.
A good tune from VMP tuning will really wake your auto v6 up.

Re: PERFORMANCE CHIP?

Yeah, I've called around a few places, they have all recommended the Diablosport tuner over the SCT

Re: PERFORMANCE CHIP?

Really? There really is no difference. It all depends on what your chosen tuner uses to tune with. I've had both the diablo and the Sct, and I much prefer the SCT. But they both do the same thing, so it doesn't matter. It's just the bells and whistles that make the SCT better, like live link datalogging to your laptop and things like that.

Re: PERFORMANCE CHIP?

I guess the brand doesn't matter. Supposedly the biggest difference is how many aftermarket goodies you have the device tune. On mine, I have the high performance coilpacks, underdrive/ water pump pulleys and intake. I can't wait to see the change.

Re: PERFORMANCE CHIP?

I've seen a lot of Diablos fail, for no good reason. I use SCT
