Bamachip's Tuner or Headers...

I am getting one or the other...eventually BOTH sooner or later.

I like the chip/tuner as it can increase mileage, and boost performance -- although I am not going to be hot-******* this Splash. It has like, 93,000 miles and I would like it to last me for a while.

The headers will give off a nice sound, keep the temp a little lower and provide a little better airflow.

Tuner is $400, Headers are $700.

Please post what you think, along with a vote, plus a description [if you would] of why you think the way to voted.

Also included is an 'other' for other alternatives I haven't put in here. Please post you're idea.

I think chips/tuners are the best bang for the buck. if you do the chip first the headers will be worth more if you do them later.

I am with all others. The tuner will be your best bang for your buck. More horses and better mileage than the headers and $300 cheaper.
