Re: Chips

Save your money for now, then if you have it dyno tuned they can add a chip.

The stock ECU can handle all but the most exotic mods anyways.

It is if you have enough mods to make it worthwhile.

That should help make some power.


Take a look at the Trick Flow Top End Kits.
They have one that will net you around 360 HP.

Trick Flow Top End Kit


P.S. I tried to find it at our site supporters, but was unable to do so.
Their search features are terrible, but if they have them and you get enough posts (50) they might save you some money if they have them in stock.

No, I have Edelbrock heads and intake, but my build is for a different purpose.
I'm going for excessive horse pressure.

Not a good idea, you might end up frying the ECU.

I'm pretty sure cranking out power and being able to apply it is everyone's goal here.

No, actually we are all about butterflies, flowers and rainbows.

We just use the Mustangs to cover that so people don't make fun of us.

I love pay days. I have to be creative and hide 20 here 50 there, just to save up to buy a part. 33 and married with a kid. My wife sees no room in our finances for me to be a kid but I make it happen!

I know how that feels. We are a big happy family now though. My daughter loves it too. I just have to be easy with the upgrades and extra spending.
