Performance Chips

I'm just wondering if the Jet Performance Chip, or other similar chips are worth the money and/or safe for the vehicle. I know what the dealers say, but I'd like to hear from someone who has one.

I got the JET chip from a friend for $50.00. It is definitely worth that. I felt performance gains throughout the rpm range. My acceleration after installing the chip and 32" tires was better than stock with 30" tires. I now run higher octane fuel which costs a bit more, but as long as I keep my right foot off of the floor board, I seem to get about 1.5 mpg bettergas mileage with the chip. Just today I removed the stock airbox and put on a cylinder racing air filter. Holy shiite!! With that and the chip it must have at least 30 more horsepower. I really don't know if I'm damaging my engine. I doubt it if it's running this good! Time will tell I guess. I'm keeping a close eye on my plugs and O2 sensor for any signs of weird mixture or heat or anything.

Thanks for the info Shacky, that is about what I would expect to gain (30hp) out of a mod chip. I think I'll give Jet a call and see if I can set myself up with one.

Out of curiosity, which stage chip was it?

I believe it is a stage 1. I think that a stage 2 requires a cooler thermostat and a cat-back. ENJOY!
