Jet Chip

I know that this subject has been covered b4 (sort of), but I'm thinking about adding a stage 1 jet chip to my stock '99 TJ. Is it worth it? Has anyone noticed any adverse reactions? I moved out of a '97 Z-71 to the TJ, and I do miss the oomph in accelaration. I don't expect warp speed results, but some more oomph would be nice.

Re: Jet Chip

In my experience, those chips don't do too much. My friend has one for his Cherokee, and it didn't do anything but make it shift a little smoother. The chip is supposed to alter the fuel and timing curves, and it probably does, but the biggest difference should be the loss of $200 worth of weight in you back pocket.

Also, I think the chips are designed to increase upper RPM horsepower, which will not help in the acceleration oomph or off-road.

Re: Jet Chip

<font color=blue>What about stage 2 chips? I know they're not street legal. What I'm thinking is: drive with it for 23 months, and get smogged with the stock chip at the 24th month...

Re: Jet Chip

YJ94 you got it man. I run the stage 2 in my 98 TJ and there is a noticeable difference. I just got smogged with the stock computer running and put the chip back in. I haven't noticed any adverse effects at all.

Re: Jet Chip

Do you think a Stage 2 chip would help the computer keep up with a stroked 4.0? Also, what size injectors would help put a little more gas in the chambers?
