tuner chips?

i know everyone likes the bama tuners but i cant aford the 400$ for it, i was looking at the used ones on jusnes websight but the older style is out of stock that was like 250$+ i forget, but is there a chip or tuner that is under 300$ out there that works. ill get killed if i buy the x-cal 2 lol. i jsut want something for better MPG thats all like an economy tune with a lil power increase would be excelent for me i never use Premium gas ever so i dont need the extra tune there

thanx

check out Jet chip. I've got one in my '01.

power and economy usually don't go together. In most cases, you'll have to sacrifice one for the other.

Do I like my chip? I paid 225 on ebay. I guess it's okay. But I wish I would have spent the money on header, exhaust or some gears!

Later.

I got power and economy with my bama tuner so that statement is incorrect. I gained alot more power and 2+ mpg being lifted so its worth it. If you can wait I would.

I know you cant afford it but it would pay off to just wait and save some money on the side to get the X-Cal II. Where you get power and economy like Bill said I have the old blue one and I love it
