it should work with it, but wether it works well is a different story... its a generic tune designed to work with a stock setup... you would have been better off putting the cam in first and then getting it tuned...

did the chip give you any noticable improvement?

i tried a chiptorque on mine a while back with a big cam, i ripped it off the same day! i gained so much more by just advancing the ignition timing at the dizzy... although i still have a rich fuel mixture that i need to fix, so ill be looking at a custom tune sometime soon...

If you get a cam you should definately see a power increase. I'm not sure what effect the chip will have on it as I have only been in a stock car that had a generic chip (I couldn't tell the difference, he could though). Best bet would be to get the cam then get flash tuned/custom tune

dude go and see Joe at Crescent Motors in liverpool, will hook you up with one of the best cams you can. with ya powerchip i dont recommend them anymore, mine made her worse with the new cam (was a wade cam at that time) havent even bothered to put it back in and wont now, anyway see joe and get one of his cams, will go nicely with the induction and zorst mods you've already done.

What month in 98 is your falcon? Because from march onwards they have different motors and a normal cam will not suit.

For this car need a custom tune with cams. dont worry many people here have been ripped off by powerchip.
