chip/programmer help

I know of Jet chips and Bama tuners. I found Jet at like 235 ish I think. And at Jusnes Bama Xcalibrator is 275 and Xcalibrator is 399. What kinda of increase in power will I see? And what are other alternetives (sp?). Thanks.

I would go with BamaChips XCalibrator 2 from Doug (You can get it from Jusnes Modified). If there is anyone out there that knows the Ranger inside and out, it's Doug. Personally, I don't trust any other person's tunes.

Hard to say what gains you will get sicne we have no idea what engine/transmission you have. In your sig, include make/model/tranny/ etc. It makes answering questions a lot easier.

doug has gotten some amazing gains out of the 2.3, if youre looking to save money, our used X1 is the way to go for sure, for 275, you get three custom tunes written by BamaChips, that are without a doubt far superior to the JET tunes

www.bamachips.com is Doug's website. Or check out www.jusnesmodified.com that's Bob's website. E-mail Doug with any questions you have. He would be the best person to answer the "What gain will I see" question and any other questions you may have. After any questions you have are answered, you can order it w/ the tunes you want from either website.

its prob the valve seals/piston rings. make sure you change your pcv valve also if you have never changed it.
