    Honestly, don't waste your $$ on a "chip" -- best bet is a mail order tune from Frost. A chip is simply going to feed false data to the PCM in an attempt to alter the fuel and spark for "more power". Better to do it the correct way with a tune.

    Like Jeff said I wouldn't use a chip as they can do more harm than good by sending false data to the computer. As suggested my Jeff I would do a mail order tune or a dyno tune depending on your mods to do it the correct way and get the most out of your engine without risking damaging it.
