Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

I have contacted a few companies about burning a custom chip for an 89 Mustang gt. A few of the ones with the chassis dyno needed me to take the car to them. The closest one was around 4 hours away. If anyone knows of a company that could help me out with this by me just telling them the modifications and them in turn burning a chip please let me know.

radical racing in atco, NJ would probably do it for you.. but he'll tell you right off the bat that he can't be 100% sure/accurate without doing some dyno pulls

Stang Hi here might be able to do it as well. You could email/call him and tell him Rob sent you.

Welcome to Stang-Hi Performance if you want to look up his info

He has been deathly ill this week and just opened up for the first time in a week yesterday. I say ping him again when you get a chance...he might have forgotten about calling you back as he has been the walking dead lately.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

I wrote an email to Jason at VMP this morning asking if they are still burning the chips with the multiple setttings. I left a message for radical racing yesterday and didn't receive a return phone call yet. Thats too bad about the dude at stang hi. hopefully he feels better soon. I will give him another call next week maybe he will feel better.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

Jason at VMP contacted me back this morning and said he really doesn't like to burn a chip for a 5.0 without the dyno time. Not because he wanted to make the extra money at all but, because he wanted to do it right. Seeing that he is located in Florida that's a little too far. So I am still stuck. Hopefully stang hi performance will be able to pull through with something when I call them next week. Motorvation said they can do it but, he said it may take a few times of me sending the computer to them then them sending it back to me to get it right. I guess that is better than nothing though.

Shouldn't need the computer to burn you a chip, so long as you make sure the contacts are clean before you plug the chip in

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

Both of thos last 2 companies I mentioned seemed very knowledgable and both were definately places I would do business. However I finally made some progress today and found a place in Central PA called CJ's pony parts. They seem to have alot of knowledge on 5.0 computers and said he can put 2 more programs into the chip I have for around 40 bucks. The chip I have is currently setup for my old modifications. It took some searching but, I think I finally made some progress. Thanks guys for the advice.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

I have a chip that has a 4 program memory bank in it now from superchips. it works really well. you can't set the timing over 10 degrees advance though. It will start to ping. This setup is probably only temporary. Next winter I am going to tear it all apart and use my good heads and roller rockers for something with alot more power. the 302 is OK but, it took a ride in my buddies 79 Z28 with 650 horspower from a carberated motor with no add ons and never experienced anything like that.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

Is your car doing stupid stuff like bucking and having trouble idling. We are headed for a tune here as well sometime SOON.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

It was bucking till i bought the right mass air meter. Also I have a fuel pressure regulator that runs a constant 30-40 lbs. and when pushed will allow up to 65 lbs. of fuel pressure in. It beats having to adjust one all the time. Timing also had alot to do with it. I patched alot of vacuum leaks to make that all 100%. Now it feels right. It has alot of power for a 302. The computer tuning did alot. CJ's pony parts in PA helped me out with that.

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

Where did you find most of your vacuum leaks and what did you do to find them? I heard just using some starter/carb fluid around the intake and listen to when the engine revs will find some leaks. What did you use to patch them up?

Re: Having trouble locating someone to burn a custom chip

Alot of the leaks were from old splices in the lines. I replaced them with new splices of larger vacuum line that fit over the old stuff and clamped them off. You could hear them though. I have been told to use a straw to listen for them. I don't know if that works or not. Mine were bad to the point that you could hear them.
