Chipping out an 07 Mustang?

Looking at chips. Def a plug and play.

Has anyone out there chipped there mustang? What kind of chip did you use? I was surfing the net and there is a lot of different types to choice from.

First question: Do they work?

Second question is it gonna mess up my car in the long run?

Gas at the pump is going up. Looking for something to gain a pinch more ground with.

Any other suggestions for fuel milage gains?

What kind of gain did you get after installing?

First of all you dont put a chip in any more, you use a tunner that programs the ECU so you can revert back to stock tune very easily.

First question: They work great when done correctly

Second question: Only if the tune is a good quality tune and not one just picked up from a vendor that has no clue how to tune a car. Every car is different and it takes some hands on to get it right.

They should be able to help you with gas mileage and performance/driveability overall~

its all about getting a tuner that knows your car, dyno tunes are the best (from a tuner that once again knows the car.)

Re: Chipping out an 07 Mustang?

also remember there is a WOT tune for when you floor it and a normal driving around tune, data logging is the ONLY way to get a tune 100% spot on... dynos are great but wont get the car in perfect running shape~ for most this isnt a big deal just FYI.

I am not sure who does good tunning on 05+ stangs im sure some will chime in and let you know who to check out.

I think bamachips does a good many 05+ gt's

Bamachips would be the place to look. A lot of people have been really happy with their tunes.

Re: Chipping out an 07 Mustang?

Went and found a SCT Livewire. Niffy toy for tuning the pre-loads aren't too bad. The Fuel econ defly a boost in MPG pushing 29-31 mpg interstate. The Performance wasn't bad either quicker off the line and beefier acceleration. Literally turn off the car, select the load you want and then when its done. Ready to play

Website: SCT Mustang LiveWire Tuner (96-08) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Only problem now is where to place it so its not messing with anything else.
