    Question Jet Chips?

    I was wondering, does anyone know if a Jet chip stage 2 would be good for a blazer? 1996 4.3 liter votech v-6, CPI... I got flowmasters and a k&n air filter right now, would another chip be better than the jet stage 2? im willing to spend 200-300 bucks on one, or does anyone know of something that costs about that, but adds more hp than a chip.

    Thanks for any help!

    ive heard that jet chips do WONDERS for trucks
    even stock ones
    they can adjust shift times, rpm limit, and a whole lot more.
    there ARE manufacturers that make better chips...
    i know hypertech, ADS, and superchip all make good products...but ive heard the best results from hypertech and jet

    more often than not, youre gonna want to couple a chip purchase with a new ignition control module.
    i personally like the holly anniahlator chip
    i slapped that in my truck, and noticed a performance increase in the mid to upper rpms.

    the only other thing you can do on that kinda budget
    is to put a whole new ignition system in
    thats what i did...and by far its one of the greatest investments in my truck.
    i put the MSD 6A capacitive discharge system in
    and my truck starts better, gets better gas mileage, and more importantly...more torque and HP all along the powerband.

    if you need more info on any of the above things
    drop me an email, im, or pm
    and ill help ya out

    I was under the impression that the chips were only for the 1995 and earlier trucks. Everything that I have read calls for a programmer for the 1996 and newer systems. I found this out from a buddy that used to have a 1998 Jimmy 4.3L 4x4 when he checked into mods.

    i wrote an email to jet about this a couple days ago, they said that i could use the stage 2 chip or the reprogramer, you still leave the factory chip in there, and the jet chip plugs in somewhere on the factroy chip...

    Chips and dip

    I put a jet stage two chip in my full size Chevy truck with a mildly built motor headers and a TBI spacer and a K&N and didn't get any appreciable performance gains only hat my gas mileage went down 2 mpg and my plugs didn't look lean.

    For me the jury is still out on chips and the performance gained. To me there is no replacement for displacement.

    spacer

    The spacer is a good idea it adds volume to the plenum in the intake and also increases the velocity of the incoming air/fuel charge. Try the ones with the swirl pattern cut in the bores this works even better to help keep the fuel atomized longer.
