Performance chip

I have, probably a stupid question, does the 96' escort have a performance chip or is that like something you add on to the vehicle?

Re: Performance chip

On your car you would replace the stock chip with the upgraded performance chip in the ECU .

Re: Performance chip

As already suggested , get yourself an early Christmas present and buy a workshop manual .

Re: Performance chip

Yes .Going by your previous posts , if you are not sure of what you are doing on the car , you are best leaving it alone . " A little knowledge is a dangerous thing " certainly applies to cars .

Re: Performance chip

Your welcome .Every man to his own trade . The number of times I've had cars brought into the garage by people with limited knowledge trying to carry out DIY repairs and making things a whole lot worse or introducing further faults , beggars belief .
