Sct-4 banks eliminator chip inquiry?

Hi I'm curious how this chip works. Can you upload customs tunes, how do you hook it up to a computer, how much hp can you add from just a full exaust bigger throttle body a tune and cai? Also if you have it can you share useful information about it. Can't seem to find to much info about it or how it works.

Yea I think they are like the other tuners but are cars are to old for the plug and play under the dash by bamba so we have to tamper with the computer and insert the new chip. And actual Ecu chip. I could be mistaken

Correct and they don't support things like data logging.. Ect.. Because isn't not a handheld... Also why it's cheaper..

I have the chip it my car it came with it, the previous owner had it done by am. It has race performance street and stock mode it's pretty cool and useful because you don't have to turn the car off and reflash it to run the tunes. You just turn the dial not really sure about the power gains but the tunes that they give you are custom made for whatever mods you have on the car. Hope this helps

If u are going to spend money on a chip then go to a dyno shop an get a custom tune wrote for your car. A generic tune is a waste of money. I wouldn't try to write your own tune unless u know what u are doing an have the software. Which cost a fortune.

94gtconvert,

The SCT Eliminator chip is great if you have an OBDI Mustang. The SCT Eliminator chip does allow the tuner to adjust every possible parameter in the ECM, which is as good as it gets with OBDI. Even better, if you were to add a supercharger or turbo and wanted a dyno tune, most OBDI Mustang tuners use the SCT software. So, the chip will still be used to hold the custom tune, if needed.

Bottom line, if you're planning on modifying your OBDI Mustang and continue to use the factory ECM for tuning, you can't beat the SCT Eliminator chip. It will be by far the best mod you've ever added to your Mustang!

Thanks Shane, its really cool that American muscle has people on the forums. Not many company's these days offer costumer support like you guys. Everything I order from AM comes within 2 days and is quality stuff that is not defective. I have bad luck with defective stuff, but with AM no problem. Thanks again Shane!

The mail order chip I think is $260 or $280 and if you ever get a custom dyno tune your looking $200 for a blank chip plus $400-$500 for dyno tune!
