Hey guys,

Need some info on piggy back tuning. When i was doing my apprenticeship a work colleague got me onto piggy back tunes prior to the work I have down already. I was cleaning up and found the chip and was curious to install it. I would have called him up to install it because he worked at power chip ( Sth Melbourne ) about 20 years ago but unfortunately he has moved interstate. My mechanic is closed from now to mid Easter so discussing it with him is out. If anyone could help that would be great!

Will it play havoc with my cam?

Need to play with fuel pumps or hoses?

How easy it actually is to install..

Here is some information on the packaging on the chip :
--CELOXporformance-- + 25 Hp, smooths out flat spots, better L/100, etc, etc
Wired to inlet air temp sensor (AIT) or Engine coolant sensor. Depending on Km’s of car may take up to 400km for the chip to adjust. ( and then some directions to install )

No it is not!
Junk is actually useful to someone somewhere.
These "chips" are not.

You will get comparable results shoving a packet of Samboys into the air inlet.

Wrong again, These chips are absolutely useful. To anyone requiring a resistor that is.
You may find that Cheetos have a higher octain rating than samboys.
