hi-performance chip
« on: January 24, 2009, 10:42:34 AM »
  Still a new guy here on Mustangs eager for knowledge. Question is......... Where do I find "the chip" and can I determine if it's stock or aftermarket by looking at it? Thanks in advance. -Gary

Gary, I've heard guys talk about the SLR a lot, and they all like it.  It's only 70 bux and is advertised to give you an extra 50 ponies and 50 torque.  Give these guys a holler.

I'd steer clear of them...

As for the chip... There is no chip in a factory mustang.

The ECU is in the passenger side door. A Proper chip plugs into the service port on the factory ECU. The ECU controls the engine.

The whole point of the chip is to re-calibrate the car and in the case of an automatic the transmission as well to give you more power and driveability.

I'd look to your local SCT Dealer. http://www.sctflash.com

Contact them for more info and to find someone who can help you out. They'll be able to get you a setup for your vehicle.

With that being said, personally, I'd look into an SCT Flash Tuner. The X2 or X3 will work well, many places sell them. SCT offers a Pre-Programmed version which works out very well for stock or near stock vehicles and you can always have you vehicle custom dyno tuned later on.
