This is for the Diablosport delta chip right ?
They have the JFA7 code listed on their website for available ECU codes.
Can't they burn you a chip with the JFA7 ECU code ?

FYI-
After you buy the chip from them, don't expect any kind of tech support.
RPMOUTLET has good prices and ship very quickly but their tech support is crap.
I'm speaking from experience.

Oh, you can buy the chip and these guys will reprogram it for you for $35 plus ~$6 for shipping.
They respond to emails within a day if you have any questions about removing the rev or speed limiter and such for your ECU code. Not all ECU codes have the rev and speed limiter raised or removed.
I tried to get RPMOUTLET to reprogram mine since they only charge $22 bucks but they won't answer any email or give me some feedback on turn around when I called.
Telling me to send it in and we will get it out to you when we're done is unacceptable.

If im going to add small mods, like an intake, some rims/tires, maybe a short shifter, and MAYBE an exaust... do i need to reprogram the chip?

Yes. You need to have the chip burned to YOUR ECU code.
You don't need a custom burn though for the mods you have or have listed.
You just need the standard Premium Octane Performance burn. They can make adjustments for your speedo/tire size and raise Rev and speed limiters if avaliable for your code also on the standard burn.

hehe... about RPMOUTLET not responding to e-mail -- they screwed up when they shipped my diablo chip -- shipped a diablo Predator unit for the Hummer H2 as well. I always have stuff shipped to my parents place 'cuz UPS blows hard in Chicago. I e-mailed them when the I saw this and they never got back to me before i left town after xmas - so I brought it back to chicago with me. Couple of days ago, my mom called and said UPS was there to pick it up and return it -- but I'm not in Peoria and neither is the package. I e-mailed them again and haven't heard from them yet. I assume they want it back 'cuz it sells for $440, but... damn.

If I were you I would deal with a shop nearby where you can get your chip burned. I do not trust that kind of thing to mail order.
