I could chip it to NOS it (ie. get the chip programed to retard the timing) but when you do this you lose some of your original HP, so I want to either Chip it to advance the timing and perchase a cam or I just want to run a 75 shot and not chip it. ANYONE HAVE AN ANSWER???????????????????
Humm.. in that case.. can you find a way to run a bypass switch that disables the new chip when runnin NOS? O wait.. never mind.. I believe it'* not going to be a piggyback style chip. Humm.. that I didn't know about Chip and NOS. The other benefits of the chips is it disables the speed governor which I hate
But i"m guessin if the only time you want the extra oomph is on the 1/4 mile.. then NOS it then. You won't be using it that often.. whereas the chip and cam is constant HP increase.. and may prove much safer on the engine... humm.. now I just dug myself in a hole..
I say if you like the way your bonnie is now for local driving.. then NOS it for the track. If you feel the bonnie is laggin in normal driving.. then get the chip and cam.
