Ok the other night i went out and had a few runs in the falcon and was pretty happy with the way it went. Smoked a few commies down the quater then a R32 pulled up and yeah.... im sure u can guess the rest. So im looking to get the Falcon chipped. Jjust looking for advice on the perfect chip.

Thanks

p.s. would a K&N panel be the way to go too?

Agreed. This thing is going to be flat out awesome.

As for the K&N pad filter. Whatever floats your boat I suppose...

Well I e-mailed CAPA about a week ago, asking them a few question about the soon to be released chip and they still haven't got back to me.

Will post the reply as soon as I get it :)

That would be great... I wouldnt mind getting my efxr6 chipped. How does the flash tuner work?? I have read some stuff about them but not really enough to understand how its actually works. Its not like a piggyback chip or anything like that is it..???
