Performance Chips

Continuing and constant research has brought me to Performance Chips. I know absolutely nothing about them, aside from that certain chips yield different results. Depending on the desired output you desire, will that determine that company or brand chip to get, or are there other aspects to consider?

Ive seen ads on WF for Superchips and they are recommended on Quadratec as well. To start with I know I would like to get more low end torque and more HP would hurt either.

Shoot me your advice, opinions and experiences


Craig

Either do a search on the forum or just wait and read the posts. Performance chips and CAI posts are very common here.

Listen to Atthehop. I use to work for the company that made Superchips and Edge products (Superchips is owned by Edge and Edge is owned by MSD Ignitions and I know all the engineers. For a TJ they are useless and the engineers will agree. For a JK they have a little more options as in changing tranny shifting patterns and things like that. Spend you hard earned money elsewhere.

Awesome thanks for your input. I have friends that dub vws and they thought it would be good to have, but they are concerned with race vehicles and don't really mess with off road vehicles. Now I know thanks

Take a look at my reply on the thread below. I spent a lot and got moderate gains, probably none of it from the chip.

Thoughts on Performance Chips???
