Use the "easy" button. Call or write to Intense Racing http://www.intense-racing.com/Mercha...tegory_Code=IE and tell them what you have and they can fix you up right. You dont need a chip, they sell reprogrammed original PCM'* dirt cheap, $99. And are happy to sell you colder spark plugs, a smaller pulley to fit your needs, and a cold air intake system. I havent seen cheaper prices and better support than they provide.
