And the whole time I thought they were talking about me being barefooted and in the engine compartment.

So does this guy burn Series 1 Chips as well. Could I have this done? If so, I would keep it very simple and down to earth, but can you guys give me some clues as to where I should go, since you don't seem to like the turner our friend here is going to. Also, willwren, what all did the Jet Stage do?

Good luck with the Chip burning, let me know how it goes!

The guy does burn Series 1 chips. As he explains, anyone can do it. It'* just a matter of what you change. I have a post on here somewhere about chips.
It'* just a matter of who did the Dyno work and who didn't.
If you guess right , you could have the guy burn a chip just like Jet or Hypertech.
if you guess wrong you just relieved yourself of 40 bucks and have a slower car.
I think with the chip vendors you pay 40 for the chip and 160 for the Dyno work.
Guessing is expensive. Then again, at 40 bucks you get 5 tries.

Wow ive seen it again! and again! and now this time! 95 you are so right about people shooting any idea down that they didnt think of, dont have, or dont have a patent for

Im really glad your going with what you decided from the beggining and not letting a few people who don't agree with it because they may have something different, get in your way.

If the manufacturer of the mods for your car say that with the mods you have, your shift points should be 6100rpm, then do it.

If your mods are manufactured by Mr. Jay in his modification manufacturing and research labratory, then you should drop your shift points.

Also i understand why your raising your idle rpm. I know with a cam mod, usually you get a rough or lumpy low rpm idle, which most people dont find healthy. IMO it sounds sweet!

I'm assuming you mean Dr. Jay and in that case you should really get your **** straight before you try to make smart *** comments. Since you obviously weren't paying attention to my posts I'll give you a little refresher:

The little bit about others not liking the idea because we have something different just doesn't hold water. I'd LOVE a $40 chip, hell if you kept up with my rebuild you'd know I could have used the savings. And what would our motivation be anyway? Do you seriously think we're jealous because someone is making a cheap generic chip?

Oh and didn't the manufacturer say 6400rpm?

Welcome to the club, sounds like you're off to a great start.

Listen, i started this theard so i'm gonna try and send it in the right direction.
I've done alot of research and e-mailing to figure out what i'm gonna do to my chip.
Now this my not be the absolute best way to find my optimum shift point but i've got faith in the people who did it before me. A dyno in my neck of the woods is very expensive and i have shoped around. So, i'm going to go with what other people have done sucessfully before.
I put alot of time and thought into my decision so if i come off as being a cocky pos then sorry.
I just believe what i'm doing is going to be sucessful. I saw the point of view that willwren and dr. jay were stating like last year and i can toatally understand where there coming from. But like i said earlier, i've got faith in the people who have done it before.

After talking with zoomer once agian, he stated that for a non- HighVelocityIntakeInsert car 6200 shifts are good, and for a car with my mods including the HVII, 6400-6600 would be optimum. He has done alot of powerband testing on these engines and is pretty knowledable.

So, i'm goin with 6300 rpm shifts.

If i had a manual, shifting at peak would be optimium. But we have automatics and your 1/4 mile is more dependant on the area under the entire hp/tq curve. That is a fact.

Well anyways, if anyone dosen't have anything nice to say then don't post. (I'm including myself)

How bout i used a diffrent approach and well see how it works out.

I'll post how it works out. If you have questions pm me. Otherwise try not to post up in here because it'* looking like a grude match.

LIke I said .. 40 for the chip .. 160 for the past Dyno work of the manufacturer.
All I'm saying is be educated on the chip change. You could get crazy real fast with a
custom chipburn. That GMperformance dude will burn it however you ask. He doesnt care if it pings like hail storm on a tin roof. The custom job requires KNOWLEDGE.
if you think you know your ***** then go for it.
I'm leaning towards not guessing. I've guessed wrong so many times.

Well, i got my chip on friday.
I put it in and my car wouldn't hold an idle. I richened up the mixture a bit with my afc and got it to idle ok. I went crusing around and it seemed to be fine. No problems accelerating and no boging of any kind.
But when decelerating, my rpms shot down fast and low to like 600-800 and it sounded like my engine wasn't even on. It did die once but that'* after i riched up the mix with the afc again. I did check my WOT shift point and it was right on point at 6300.

So, i pmed DarthFiero about my woes.

He, as he stated he would be before, was willing to work with me to get the final product i desire.
He said he'* pretty sure he knows what'* goin on w/ the decelerating and seems confident that with some scan tool data from my superchip and his chip that he can get things worked out.
I'm going to get the following info from a scan tool this week from both chips:
spark advance at idle
Maf @ idle
Integrator and block learn counts at idle.

Hes pretty good at backing his work and was really willing to work this out so i'm happy with that.

I'll post how things go.
