confused Performance programming or chip?

Greetings Enthusiasts! I'm new here and have been searching, but can't find any info on plug and play horsepower. I like to add about 50 hp or so to my 99 Marquis. I've looked at Bully Dog performance tuners, but am afraid to spend $400 for a machine that might not even give me 10 more horses. I know the 4.6 is capable of much much more than the stock 200hp.

Re: Performance programming or chip?

Usually for a gas engine takes more than a tuner to add that kind of power. I would be looking elsewhere to add power. Don't be fooled into other false adders like cold air intake ect. I don't do much with performance so will let someone else chime in but will say don't buy the tuner until one is needed.

Welcome to the site!

A few answers might be found in the blogs under "K&N cold air issues"

Beware of your state's emissions laws before making any modifications that you can't undo.
