i have it..it definatly helped torque maybe gained 1 or 2 MPG it made my truck shift at same RPM everytime.....not a bad investment...you will have problems with the truck for a day while it calibrates itself to your driving

I too was interested in it because of the price. Buuuut.. considering that bama chips spends a bit extra time tweaking some of the finite things *and* you'll have the chance to change setting on down the road.. IMO it's worth the extra cost. Even if I have to wait a bit longer I think it'll be worth it.

does the jet chip kill the speed governor thing that stops your car from getting over 95 mph?

It would be a rev limiter that wouldnt allow you to rev past 3 grand in park or neutral. A speel limiter/governer is the same thing, doesnt allow a speed past 96 (well on my truck anyway)

im new to this forum, but ive been tinkering with tuning fords for about 10 years or so. ive seen em all and for the most part most are just junk. im not going to tell you what to do, but ill tell you what id do. i find the nearest SCT or Diablo dealer to you and have them put your truck on a dyno, burn you a few files onto either the xcal2 or preditor handheld units. then just change tunes via the handheld tuner to fit your needs. lastly i think jet chips are JUNK!

I have a Jet chip installed. It has helped out allot, but i should have gone BAMA. I'm still limited at 93MPH, and i have heard BAMA has greater gains. Go BAMA guys, i think it's worth the extra money.

what are somegood websites for like chips like the bama and the other performance parts for my truck.

with the buma chip you guys are saying it will remove my rev limiter, my speed sencer and increase horsepower and alll that? What is it like on gas? DOes it improve your MPG and how much it cost

Their chips are 300-400. I believe they affect the whole power band. Its basically like all the other tuning products out there, except they suck basically.
