Ok, after all the hype that I've heard about here on the BBS about performance chips I had to find out if the things really work. I wrote to hypertech and Jet Performance on the same nite to see if the things would effect the smog crap on my truck in any way and Jet replied in less than a day. It took hypertech two and a half weeks!! What service!
So, After they both assured me that it would not negatively effect my truck in any way I decided to go with the Jet Stage 2. I have the 360, manual transmission, K&N filter and a 2 chamber Flowmaster.
I got the chip/module last night and went to work on the install. The module was easy, unplug the factory harness from the computer, plug in the chip and plug the harness into the chip. Easy enough right?? Wrong, you also have to change the thermostat to a 180.. Off with the air cleaner housing, the serpentine belt, the alternator, and all mounting brackets in the general area. Any of you that have done this before know what I'm talking about... It's not as fun as it sounds.
Ok, with everything back together it was time for the test drive!! And I am still amazed that the little black box makes such a big difference!! I am no longer a skeptic,,,, this thing really works!!
(one last note, when you buy the thermostat it does not come with a new gasket for the waterneck so make sure you ask for one!)
We are suppose to go to Hollister Hills this weekend so I'll let ya know how it performs offroad.
