Think about it though, the chip you might need higher octane fuel but maybe not with the shift improver....GAS PRICES, MAN! GAS PRICES!

Thanks for the input. I read somewhere on the site that all work with aftermarket chip. Now how they know that is something of a mystery.

BTW, how close is around the corner for the SPI chip being available?

about the chip...

it is currently being tested.

the only thing i have heard about release date is "patience grasshoper" lol

i believe the first item (the split port power controler) is a rip off. sounds to me like the SWAB mod. i wouldnt spend $80 for something i can do basically free.

the other two items seem a little fishy as well.

but hey, if you get that, i have some very important blinker fluid i could sell you.
and if you buy that, i also have some ocean front property in Arizona.
