#8 of 22 IS IT POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE????
Sep 27, 2005 (8:39 pm)
I am adding an AFE cold air intake with a Granitelli mass airflow sensor to my 99 sierra. I also wanted to use a chip programmer like superchips or diablo after the engine parts are put on. Will the mass air sensor and chip grogrammer have conflict if installed??? The diablo programmer can get custom programs to run smoothly with the mass air sensor I imagine using the internet or local programmer. I live in alaska so custom programmers are limited to find I think, If there is a soultion to all this plz let me know. I asked some rep from superchips and he told me that it WONT work the mass air sensor, so thats why I want to figure out if the Diablo can line up correctly with the engine upgrades nicely. I have the superchip with no upgrades on right now and its a good peice of equipment so far, but I want the cold air + mass air sensor on as well. I have all 3 items but dont want to sell the superchips programmer, but maybe use the Diablo instead and get a coustom dyno program. TY for reading my long post but its an intracate situiation as YOU can see. PLZ GIVE ME SOME INFO OR INSIGHT WHAT TO DO!!! it on a 99 gmc sierra 5.3 engine (AFE cold air intake stage 2, granitelli mass airfow sensor with cold air tuning, and maybe a engine programmer 2)
#9 of 22 2003 Lexus GX-470 chip?
May 14, 2006 (10:14 pm)
Can you recommend a performance chip or programmer for my 2003 Lexus GX-470? I would like to improve my horsepower and mileage if possible. I see a lot of products for American made trucks, but not much for my Lexus. I see the Unichip and the Superchip in my searches. Is this the best way to achieve horsepower and mileage?

I don't think either project is worth doing. You'd be much better off selling the V6 Mustang and buying a newer V8, which will give you all the power you'll need...and then, if you wish, you can add some mods to the stock '06 or '07 V8 Mustang. If you try and do an engine replacement you'll need an entire donor car's computer system as well and there would be an enormous amount of figuring out to do---to say nothing of having to strenthen the '05s chassis, brakes and suspension to take 500HP. And finally, you'd end up with a car worth less than a stock V6 Mustang.
The Volvo is the same deal...it's not a car worth modifying because you'd have to do something really radical.
You might look into supercharging or turbocharging the V6:
Here's a link for that:
That should boost you up to perhaps 275HP or so or maybe more, depending on what you do, and should cost under $3,000.
