SCT Mustang 4-Bank Eliminator Chip 4.6 V8???


Hey everyone, the names Jon, and im very new to the site as you can see. I'm thinkin abot modding my 2001 GT. I was looking into performance chips and would like to get some feedback. Its a manual 4.6L V8 with Accu Fab throttle body,BBK Cold air intake,custom exhaust, clutch, lifetime spark plugs. With these mods from what im reading an SCT Mustang 4-Bank Eliminator Chip would do some wonders for Elizabeth! And for a good price. Thank you all very much for reading!

id pass on chips, just get a programmer and load it with 3 tunes, takes a few minutes and you can go from one to another with no problems. Plus with a lot of scanners you can data log and view info live

the eliminator chip is good. if you arent going to need different tunes onb the fly then, i suggest just getting a hand held. if you are a manual car a tune will make small changes but in an auto the changes are more noticable.

what kind of "lifetime" spark plugs you have?

Depends. I think I might get it, cuz I plan on going the n2o route. Quick switch of the dial, and boom nitrous tune would be on. Don't go chip though if you plan to keep modding AFTER you get the car tuned. A handheld would be better for that.

I have the chip that you are talking about installed in my manual car right now. I love it! There are a few things you should know about the chip though. You have to take out your car's ECU and scrape off some kind of wax coating on the computer board to install the chip which can be kind of scary. It's not hard to do but please take your time if you go this route. The other thing is (like said before) if you plan to keep modding your car you will have to send the chip back in every time you add a power adder to your stang. Keep in mind this means ship time (no chip, no fun). I'm gonna focus on appearance mods for now so the chip works out just fine for me. I cut my car off when I want to change tunes and can feel a difference between the 3 tunes that I have. Autos feel the difference even more because it really changes the shift points in the tranny and lets that added power get to the wheels. You will need the bezel(in pic) that lets you change the tunes. Tune + bezel cost me $299
