You'd like to be faster than your friends SE. W/o having your info in your sig, you'd need to tell us what you are driving.

Performance chips as a whole don't work well though. Most are simple resistors to trick your fueling and the compjter learns rather quickly.

Once we know what your driving we can help more. But a performance tune will be a good start. You can buy canned tunes for about $100. These are much better then a chip.
