i dont know what i should get...chip or throttle body or gears ??i have around $300-400 to spend. i want to feel what i payed for..i have 96 impala i have k&n intake summit mass air edelbrock headers,borla cat back exhaust..

if i was going with gears i was thinking 373's

chip-maybe a jet or a VENOM 400 performance control module

throttle body-edelbrock or holley--but i dont know if i should..or if it would be a waste the money cuz i have the stock intake

:gaah:


thanks:eek:k3:

I'm not entirely certain as what I'm saying is just gleaned from roaming the forums a bit. Apparently going to the chip or the gears will definitely wake the car up more. Stock, they come with some pretty serious highway gears so 3.73s are an improvement for take offs and from what I've heard, still aren't too bad on milage.

Chips: PCMforless or something like that is the one that everyone seems to recommend. No idea about the throttle body. yet.

Here's a good place to go for finding more info about the cars.
Go Fast Basics for Your B-Body! - Chevrolet Impala SS Forum : Chevy Impala SS Forums

Also, why can't that link right there?/\/\/\ be made into a sticky?

There is no chip, you can only reprogram the PCM, which you will have to do if you change any of those other things anyway. Btw, a new throttle body will be a step backwards from stock. A simple PCM tune from a reputable tuner will be your best bet.

...and you have done a spectacular job of that so far.


Does anybody else get the feeling this thread is headed for that famous scene where the def guy can't hear you, even when you shout louder, and longer?

If those parts were on it when you bought it, then it probably has a tune already.

Chip...no such thing, hyper-crap, Venom, Jet all crap.

Throttlebody...you don't need one yet. If you don't feel like you got what you paid for already you either got ripped off, or didn't know what you wanted in the first place.

Save more money, get 4.10 gears.
