find a dyno in ur area if possible to have a dyno-tuned sct/predator chip done...do not just order a chip when going turbo.

moving to forced induction

do chips show much improvement to your performance if you don't have turbos or anything like that? And if so, where can I get one, and how much will it help?

You will want to go here for now.

http://www.focussport.com/chip.htm

Then when right before you go turbo, get the pro racer upgrade package here.

Don't have a laptop? Got ya covered there too.

Compare all 3 components to a Pectel Engine Management unit or the DTA Fast System and tell me what you think.

After that, find someone to install the Pectel or DTA and THEN lets see what you go to say.
