stay FAR..far..FAR away from these. They offer you everything you could ever want in a chip, and give you none of that.

You need a tuner not a chip

Its like an old, but true saying. "if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is." Those "chips" basically are a resister which tricks your truck into thinking the intake is pulling in air which is cooler than it truly is. You are not going to notice any difference in power, and you most likely will loose MPG's from doing this to your truck. Some of the horsepower increases they are advertising could not be reached by supercharging your truck and running nitrous at the same time.

A tuner is the option you are going to look for, it will actually make a difference that you can feel. You have to remember though, this is not like bolting on a supercharger, its not going to turn your truck into a 12 sec 1/4 mile speed demon. Most likely what you will see is a 5-10 horse increase on premium fuel, and if your running an automatic you will benefit from firmer shift points.

These are Chips/Tuners you can benefit from, although i have seen some questionable reviews on Jet Chips. The best thing to do is research what works and what doesn't, its not overly exciting and it will likely take you longer than picking up a soda or pack of gum, but you will not regret a little bit of research before you throw your money down.

Thanks, I would like to increase the power and remove the speed limiter. OBJECTIVES The is that the Ranger can reach 125mph
Premium gasoline in Brazil has a very high value. I would work the chip to work Etanol with the Ranger

Thanks for the info. My desire is to research enough. That's why I'm in some forums. I want to see the experiences of others.

125 is pretty...improbable..to achieve in a ranger. I suppose if you removed the engine speed limiter with a tuner then you might somehow achieve that speed. You might blow your engine. But a ford ranger will handle like **** at that speed. Just because it is a truck and not a sports car. Here's something that could probably handle 125.

Thanks for the link. I know it's possible to see this site Google Tradutor

This was a category that existed in Brazil. The cars were really powerful twin-turbo using Ethanol
I thought this change was common in the U.S.

Ethanol Turbo vehicles are not popular here. I run Ethanol and Methanol in my Evolution IX; but I'm a professional tuner and nothing I modify is very "popular".

I think you are going to want to build your ranger up a bit more if i am catching your drift correctly. An N/A tune with a K&N filter is going to still only net you about 4-15 HP even with an expert tune and Higher octane fuel. if your aspiration is to be running similar to the trucks you showed in your link, you are going to need to go with some type of forced induction (turbo/supercharger) or yank that 6'er out and get your hands on a V-8. The trucks you show in your link are pretty well modified, and thats not a result you are going to net from a Different air filter and a tune.

X2 they are only going to get you mild gains, a supercharger is the only sure fire way to gain lots of hp, unless you are going to do alot of other work to your truck, machined heads, cams, bore & stroke. lol just get a v8.
