      Some chips make you larger... some chips makes you small and the ones that ebay gives you don't do anything at all....

      Just put a couple of go-faster stripes on it. Actually put 4 go-faster stripes and get double the HP increase,! ๐Ÿค”

      In my experience arch flames work the best...unless you put 8 stripes, then maybe...

      @ 11:20 They should make those splicers transparent, then you can see if it made a connection or not. Great vids, Cheers!

      Thanks - through and all that. Can you tell me which chip would be brilliant for my 2013 Dodge Charger SE V6 3.6L, so that 'Bob can be my Uncle"?

      MAF and MAP are two very different things, you cant put a glove on your foot and call it a shitty sock.... you should redo this episode with compatible equipment to see gains/loss.
      normally I don't Necro post but this is was unavoidable.

      I love how the mod guy says the ECU cost $20 bucks, then 1 min later the Haltech guy asks how much they cost. Classic dumbass. Also you guys are obsessed with Unicorns, V-Tec and balls, its all getting so old
