Re: to chip or not to chip that is the question...

hmm well they tinker with air fuel settings right..
id spend 1500 on a full exhaust system for the car.. good airfilter setup and maybe a cold air intake. THEN get the chip. in my opinion ud get better results if u did it in that order. thats only my opinion

Spinning first .... Chirping second ... and NEAAAAARLY chirping third. Fiesta is the word. Its more than just a party on wheels.

Re: to chip or not to chip that is the question...

Does anyone know if an air fuel controller will work with the Fiesta??

I was thinking something along the lines of an Apexi SAFC or similar.

Re: to chip or not to chip that is the question...

you serious??? i thought itd be more than 800 fitted and tuned.
Is the chip traceable and can it be deactivated simply when its time for services?
