Performance Chip

Hi all,
I'm pretty new to the forums so please bear with me.

Some guy keeps mentioning a performance chip to put in my car to make it go faster or trick the computer?? I've looked and searched through the forum moderately but seem to run into quite a bit of sarcasm so I don't know if it's the truth or not.

I purchased a 2004 stock IS 300 a few months ago. Don't want to go too crazy with the car. What's up with this performance chip he's talking about?


Thanks

He's talking about something that does not exist for the IS300. Why does this topic come up every week? The ECU is too smart.

any "chip" you seen on ebay is a crock. the only thing close to that is an srt intake with r-ecu. after that you have an safc and engine management

all of that stuff basically does diddly-squat unless you're running a sc/turbo

2003 IS300 GGP 5 SPD NAVI

Precision 60/ GTE Internals/ AEM EMS/ R154/ ETC ETC @11psi

The character of Jesus has not only been the highest pattern of virtue, but the strongest incentive to its practice, and has exerted so deep an influence, that it may be truly said, that the ample record of three short years of active life has done more to regenerate and to soften mankind, than all the disquisitions of philosophers and than all the exhortation of moralists.

Go to the go fast section in the 1st gen section. The sticky at the top shows all mods you can do to your car if you want to stay N/A. FYI there is no single "chip" that will make your car faster.

Make sure you pick up a helmet with your new performance chip.

only cars that will benefit from chips are the factory boosted cars and cars seriously detuned from the gate. it sucks though, my buddy got a huge jump with his B5 S4. Best $600 hp/tq gain i can think of. just my opinion.

I WANT TO BE A RACE CAR PASSENGER.
