Just a Suggestion on tuning!!!!

If you are going to tune a N/A car be sure to get a chip. Do not let them talk you into programming the EEC itself. I did and now i would have to go buy a chip to be able to run regular gas. Gasoline up here has Gone up $1.00 since Wednesday so I paid 3.39 for premium yet if I had been able to use a flip chip that I once had I could have bought gas at 2.98. Think about this before you go get a dyno tune. For me I am stuck using Premium unless I bought a chip and had it programmed or find a time when Jerry with SCT will be down my way.

Just keep this in mind

Re: Just a Suggestion on tuning!!!!

Yeah, at this day in age there are a few options. SCT dealers out there have to use a chip or flasher to tune a car (and the handheld flasher stays with the car), they can't just reflash the EEC like jerry does.

The SCT multiposition chips that I sell hold up to 4 programs, and the X-calibrator2 flashers I sell hold up to 3 custom programs. These days I am giving everyone an 87 oct perf, 87 oct mpg, and 91-93 oct program.

Re: Just a Suggestion on tuning!!!!

Well I believe I'm gonna go pull my chip out tonight, no more premium in town for a few weeks.
But I'm wondering something, I have an egr delete, is this gonna cause any problems as far as my car running wrong?

It will just cause the CEL to come on.

Re: Just a Suggestion on tuning!!!!

Well the CEL will come on as soon as it is taken out lol. EGR delete, gas cap sensor is screwed up, and probably a few other things. I'm almost wondering though if it's gonna mess up my mileage more to take the chip out and have the stock computer go haywire. I really need to figure out if it's gonna hurt the car to run 87 with the chip in.

I am running a special on multiposition SCT chips right now, $269, free shipping, and a free pair of 3.8 emblems.

For the SCT X-cal2s USB flasher/datalogger the price is $399.

Both products include a custom VMP 87 oct perf tune, 91-93 oct perf tune, and 87 oct mileage tune. I am currently testing a tune that may show a 3-5MPG increase. I hope to put my 97 F150 truck in the low 20s for an average MPG (currently gets 17-19mpg). I also have a customer with a 01 V6 that is getting 27mpg right now with a "mild" MPG tune, hoping to hit over 30mpg with a prototype agressive MPG tune.
