Chips are no good for the LT1, go with a PCM programmer.Originally posted by $Bigg Money$@Nov 16 2003, 04:17 AM
has any1 ever put a performance chip in theres and where can u find 1
really 20.00 think this would work do u think they make the vechial run ritcherOriginally posted by 1LOWCHERO@Nov 16 2003, 12:59 PM
All those performance chips do is make the computer think the incoming air to the intake it colder, which advances the timing a bit. On Ebay there is someone whe sell this adaptor for the temp sensor on the intake. All it is, is a resistor which fools the computer. Cost is $20.
I am not talking about a programmer you can buy off the shelf.Originally posted by 1LOWCHERO@Nov 24 2003, 07:31 PM
I'm not saying to go out and buy it. I'm just stating what you actually do in the computer when you buy the $200+ hand programmer. Its just adusting the timing, and thats why the car runs hotter (thermostat), and knock sensor, cause you have to run higher octane gas. When you do this to the computer, its fooling itself and makes the cars run abnormal. Think about it. :biggrin:
