Chip?

I have a completely stock 94 cougar with a 4.6. I would like to add a little bit more pep to it. I have heard a lot about these dennis chips and so on. What is the real deal. How much horsepower gain do you actually get. Can you tell a difference when you are in the car. IS this a safe mod to do to the car or is it going to be really tough on it. PS where is the computer located in my car. Thanks

Very safe, very noticable, and in the passenger kick panel.

You can get the chips from the following sources

as a follow up....are all their chips the same? I mean, they can custom tune for your specific vehicle, but does one company (of those on the list) do a better job than the others?

just a dumb queston....

All of them use the same tune, all have learned from "The Man."

That's good to know...i guess the only differences would be price and delivery time (depending upon location) ???

Another satisfied Dennis customer!

I got the chip quick and remember to get cooler spark plugs and maybe a new thermo. I ordered the plugs AND chip from dennis at the same time.
