What do you call chips that aren't your's? (title)
Ok sersiously, what can you guys tell me about mod chips. Which have you used, which are the best, the best value? That sort of thing. Any advice is welcome.
how much info do you want on chips? as far as general information goes, they typically only give you a few more horses but also smooth out your rpms, etc. some testimonials on the EAT chip claim that it even improves gas milage. i didn't have mine for long enough before chipping it to really tell you whether or not that's credible.
i've been satisfied with mine. it's a little bit peppier, which was about what i expected. as long as you don't expect HUGE things from a chip, you'll probably be pleased with either one.

well nacho cheese is usually a bit more at most places if you want that with your chips.. j/k
well it also depends on your mods. I would say around $250 - $300. Some chips charge maybe $50 more if you have some sort of cam (I dont know if there is a popular cam swap from M20's like us e36 guys do with the e36 m3 cams), or also a lightweight flywheel. Conforti seems to be good, but the best I would say would always be a custom tune.
+2 on what the guys said. You should really look as to what kind of mods you plan on and work from there. I would start on the mods like intake, exhaust, headers or what not. Then work on the chip. The chip I have is custom made that I got from a good friend, and coupled with some changes I did on the drive train also, I have been able to up the overall output of the car itself.
Also, when you go for the chip, get one that is worth the money and that you feel that will deliver what you want in terms of power output.
Oh, and the final rule, DON'T GET A CHIP ON EBAY!!!!!!
How do I spell relief??
