    The ads are what they are. As with anything else you buy for your car, it is a good idea to post up a question on here and see what kind of feedback you get from other members. There is a sheet on Frost's website that you can fill out with all your info. Changes that I am aware of include fueling, spark advance, torque management, shift points (A4), line pressures (A4), volumetric efficiency (VE) table, DTC reporting, and I am sure there is much, much more.

    i think chips and predator tuners are stupid unless you own a car that nobody really fine tunes. There are a ton of people who tune GM cars so it is not hard to find some good tuners. When i first bought my car it had all the typical bolt ons without a tune so i sent my PCM to frost and when i got it back i noticed some difference! it was definitely worth it imo.

    No problem. Just wanted to let you know that with those ads running, sometimes you'll see some odd things come up. As Jeff stated, the best thing to do is ask, which you did.

    I've also had first-hand experience with e-mailing and personally talking to Steve (Frost) on here over the phone. He tuned my car for me on the street and on the DYNO.

    I also noticed a difference in power when I went and picked my car up

    I did not see anything about the exchange on his website. I did, however, email him to see if that really is an option. I do not know if I will get a reply though. I received a message stating how busy he currently is because of the weather. If it does not say that on the site, or he does not return my email, how will I be able to communicate that the exchange is what I want to do?

    No problems except for the fact that LS1's dont use "chips" and those plug in tuners ad no power what so ever...I can sell you a $350.00 paperweight if you want...mail order tunes are 1/3 the cost and will probably give you 10-15 more hp then you'll see w/ your Gforce chip lol

    I have heard stories about chips frying motors. I never tried chips, nor ever will.

    To me there is no sense in having both this site and the one you mentioned. I started with this one and it has been good to me so far. No real need to switch. Im sure that frost will get back to me about it. Thanks for the heads up though.

    You can almost always tell how good someone is by the volume of business that they have. I would also wait for Frost if given the choice.

    I have experiance with some "chips" but they are usually more suited to older SD (speed density) ECM's or OBD1's..

    The Hypertech series I, II, III chips have always worked for my older smaller displacement (GM) V6 engines with good results..

    A step further would be to have "chips" burned by a tuner whom actually knows what they are doing for those factory setups..

    I was never a fan of "tricking" the control module with inline chips and research is highly recommended if you go the "chip" route..

    Some companies will sell a "chip" that simply leans out the mixture and you could destroy your engine over time though it may feel like your gaining in some way..

    Too lean = Bad..

    Honestly there's really no need for a "chip" in OBD2 vehicles when they can be interfaced by a professional tuner and tweeked to operate without any guess work you sometimes get from "chips"...

    A stand alone is also an option here, but again, essentually it's not needed for OBD2 and street use imho..

    I'm am using the Mega Squirt II in SD and a custom harness for my project because I need more control over the engine under/for boost than can be offered in a factory OBD1 ECM..

    This was done out of preferrance as I could have changed over to the OBD2 version that was used in later years of my engine, but I am shooting for a "one of a kind" thing..

    Happy Tuning!
