Jim Wolf Technology makes the best ECU upgrade and runs 600 dollars or so.. Stillen markets the JWT ECU under their name also and it cost a little more (same exact ECU) JET makes one also but I have heard little in the way of good comments regarding the performance of the JET.

how much HP does the replacement of the ECU give you? Also what about the rev-limiter? Is that able to be taken off...or does it matter with an Automatic??

how much hp gain?

its going to depend on the mods you have on your car. if you are running bone stock and get a ecu upgrade it will probably give a little based on it remapping your air/fuel ratio, shift points,etc.
now if you have say i/h/e, pulleys,tc, lsd,nos,whatever, i'm sure it'll make a bigger difference.

So I take it would be better to add is after you mod your car rather than before?

it might make less of a difference if you advance your ignition, because JWT advances ignition through the chip, so, you'll have to set your ignition timing back to stock.

yes, it is best if the ECU is like the last mod u get...
and if u do some more major modifications, they will tweak it...
i don't know how much the adjustments would be though

Hey Shri222, what did the chip change?, I mean besides the usual aggressive fuel & ignition maps. Can you list the changes the Jet chip did, please?
