Tom: Responce to blowthru thread on FJ

Hey Tom thanks for the email. Blow through is something I've been kicking around because it seems that everyone says there is better drivability to be found. I have one of your really old chips that I got from a guy named Matthew Graham. I'm looking at the cost::benefits right now mostly. Seems like I'd probably need a new tune, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you can do.

Yes you will need a new tune for sure , you will need 6 inches of straight pipe before and after the MAF anything less than this will create issues with the idle and part throttle

It will be VERY hard to tune something like this mail order , i have some realy nice 3 inch MAF tubes that are 7 inches long that work well for blowthrough

I was wondering what all of the programs were on the chip. i.e. low boost low octane, high boost low octane, low boost high octane, high boost high octane....etc.

I'd love to gain a bunch, but I'm really looking more for driveablity. If I'm gonna need a whole new tune it's going to be hard to justify with my Gril. We have a baby coming in October which will make spending money on a new tune look bad...but I'm gonna try and sneak it in some how I think. Maybe I'll start a penny bank and one day a new chip will just show up at the door?
