Chips N Such

I was planning on doing a little bit of tweakin on my ole 92 K1500. I thought about getting a K&N FIPK and a chip so it runs well with the intake and exhaust that I have.

I was pokin around Edlebrocks pages and thought about getting a power package. Now they also send a chip so the compy will run with the new cam and intake.

Can I put in both chips at the same time? Or will I need to pick one and go with it? Help D:

Re: Chips N Such

I think it's a one or the other kind of setup. As they are both customized PROMs that replace the OEM chip. It's not like modern chips and programmers that are sometimes stackable. I've never heard much about the edelbrock packages, except for what I read on their site, but they sound like quite a nice setup. If you went with the edelbrock parts, I'd definately get the edelbrock chip that's been setup for those parts.

I'm pretty sure the cam that comes with that edelbrock kit is barely better than the stock one. Also, you can't have more than one chip, you just get the chip that is tuned for your engine configuration. is a good place to get a chip.

Re: Chips N Such

speaking of chips, do performance chips really make some difference without any other mod? Basically if everything is left stock and a performance chip is added, is there a noticable power gain and even more importantly are they reliable without causing and problems to the vehicle.
If chips really are an ok solution to some power gain, does anyone have any experience with a particular brand?
Im running a 2000 Z71 5.3 litre.

Re: Chips N Such

hoorders, your truck has an intirely different engine and computer system. There are no chips for the newer style (OBD-II). Chips are only available for the older series of computers (OBD-I). Now, you can use a programmer, or tuning module. Do a search for "hypertech" or "power programmer" on this forum. There are a few members that have it, but it's been discussed often.

OBD = On Board Diagnostics

Generallly speaking, the OBD-I systems are on TBI equipped trucks. It's a pretty simple minded system. It will tell you there is a problem with the emissions, not left bank or right bank O2 sensor. The OBD-II system has more memory and better programming to identify problems. OBD-II WILL tell you about a left bank or right bank O2 sensor.
