I have a 99 convrt 323
I was thinking about getting this performance chip
I do not have a performance air filter or exhaust.
If I get the chip do I have to get all the other stuff.
Does anyone else have a chip. Does it make a difference?
help me out guys?
GERMAN ENGINEERED Z Performance Chips
Here is how your vehicle works: Fuel/oxygen ratios in modern automobiles are regulated by an Electronic Control Unit(ECU). Factory ECUs are set to maintain a 14.7:1 Fuel/Oxygen ratio, this is known as a stoichometric fuel mix. This mix is a balance between power and fuel economy, which is what most automobile buyers are happy with. In general, leaning out the fuel/oxygen ratio will cause a power loss, but fuel economy gain, conversely richening the mix will cause a slight (usually less than 1/2 mpg) reduction in fuel economy, but an increase in power. The fuel/oxygen ratio must remain between 13:1 and 17:1 to remain efficient, any leaner and the engine will be starved for fuel, any richer and the engine will not be able to combust all of the fuel causing inefficiency. Performance chips and modules increase performance by adjusting these ratios between 13 and 14.7, the more performance oriented fuel curves. Here is how the Module will enhance your vehicle performance: The German Engineered Performance Module enhances performance in two ways. First, it modifies signals being read by the ECU causing an adjustment to the fuel curve, which is what creates the performance gain. All performance chips and modules operate in this manner. The fuel curve is modified across the entire rpm range, increasing low-end throttle response, increasing high-rev power and making up shifting more crisp. The second feature of the German Engineered Performance Module is its "High-Heat Signal Correction." In short, when the engine compartment heats up, some sensors that relay pertinent fuel curve contingent information to the ECU begin to lose accuracy due to heat absorption into the sensor. The ECU then reads these incorrect signals, and leans out the fuel curve, which is bad for performance. These errors cannot be corrected from within the computer; there must be an independent unit to correct these errors. The German Engineered Performance Module is designed Horse power gain - 10-15
