I just bought an inter-cooled pro-charger setup for my 2000 GT. The kit has a chip. My question is I'm changing my gears soon also. I have a Diablo tuner will this tuner change the gear ratio in the computer with the other chip? Also This kit was in a friends car I have the anti theft on my car, can you just swap the chip without a problem? This setup was on a 2001 gt same setup as mine. Is it safe to assume if it was properly tuned for his car it will be for mine? I'm sorry for all the questions but I'm new to forced induction and don't want to fack my car up.

You dont want a programmer tune and a chip in it. Id get it dyno tuned for the best results, they can also fix the gear ratio with the chip when they tune it. Not every car is reacts the same, Id get a tune to be sure you have the best reliablity and performance from it.

youll easily see 25-50 more whp with a dyno tune, depending on other mods you may get more. The added bonus is, as long as its a good shop, the motor will last forever.

My P1SC (3 row cooler) came with a 2 stage chip from ATI and I had the chip reflashed when I took it to be dyno tuned. My tuner was also capable of correcting the speedo for the gears at the same time. Just an FYI, but my car ran like **** with the supplied ATI 2 stage chip.

Thanks for the info. What I'd like to know, is it safe to use the chip in my car til I can afford to get it dyno tuned? I just got the car spent 1100 on exhaust, 600 on wheel, new tires, and so one. I can't afford a dyno tune right now.

It will run, but I would not really get into it untill it has its own tune

Get it dynoed! Better to be safe than sorry. Skipping over this could lead to an expensive lesson.

No dyno tune could cost you a new motor!
