Re: need help to find a chip!!

Welcome to the forums.

The general consensus is to do the exhaust (either cat-back or full) and intake before putting on a chip.

Moving this to the Aussie Falcons section since your's is a non-turbo car and you're bound to get more relevant advice from fellow N/A I6'ers over there.

2003 BA XR6, T5, Blueprint. Herrods exhaust, unifilter ,painted calipers.
0-100 in 6.55 secs.

Re: need help to find a chip!!

Yep do the exhaust and that sort of stuff firstly before going chip, no point in chipping it first else you may need to reprogram the chip if you do the exdhaust and stuff afterwards
