Modding the poopra a little bit

Skinny Will

Attention..Disorder..Shit
Well i came into some money, put some aside for spending and im putting the rest into my car. Yesterday, I ordered OBX longtube header, and today i ordered an AFC2 ecu chip. Once all is installed (im installing the header, idk how the hell im installing the chip), mike at Custom Sound Works in Lubbock, TX is tuning it on the dyno. Im guessing 215 whp (or at least hoping, haha). Still pretty low on power but good enough to tie me over until i go na-t eventually. i was just tired of only having the intake and straight-piped resonators and wanted to do a couple more things.
I'll be installing the header the week after thanksgiving and the chip probably the same week (i'll probably have to dig a little bit of money out of my savings to install it if i cant find anyone to help me). I'll keep you guys updated on dyno results etc..

Broke and broken!
I can't imagine swapping the chip would be difficult, all ya gotta do is know where your computer is I'd think.

Good luck breaking the 200hp mark :D

Maybe I'm just being to logical/cautious but if you came into money why would you put it into the car you were almost forced to sell due to lack of money. If your not working you will more than likely end back up in the same situation fairly soon(assuming you didn't come into 10's of thousands of dollars due to your mod list). If it were me I wouldn't be spending any money I didn't have too till I had a steady job. And with this current economy who knows when you'll be able to find one. If you have a job the point is mute but IIRC you currently don't.

Anywho, good luck.

How do you modify an ECU chip? I couldn't find anything from APEXi as far as a chip. I know of the A'PEXi S-AFC which is a piggyback unit. Most "chips" I've seen are nothing but crap using a reputable's companies' names to sling their trash. Be aware of this.

OBX = crap company. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=obx+crap&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&oq=

Throwing parts at your car just to do it is pointless. Just my take on it, but I've taken a stance against knockoff products.

Read it. Watch the vids and maybe you'll think something a bit like me.
