no such thing as a "chip" for the Impala, so if you see one for sale, RUN AWAY!!!

Im With Stupid It'll be 205ish shipped, but will provide good bang for the buck. I'll be ordering mine sometime in the next few weeks so I can preemptively get rid of the rear O2 sensor code and get a DP later.

My guess is Will would be able to figure out your modifications if you abbreviated the common ones, but you only need to list stuff that changes the way the engine runs (IE... a probably doesn't need to be listed, whereas a powerlog or rockers should be).

It seems like 10 days to 2 weeks is the time frame now. Don't get your panties in a bunch like some other people have after not getting any emails from Will or not having it in a week...

you only have 4things in your garage that you need to tell him about, downpipe, CAI, Powerlog, catback. Those are the only performance mods you have listed. Cat back can pretty much be left off since it doesnt do much for performance.

They are junk. Spend your money on a real tune from a Vendor or Overkill.

we dont think they are junk, we know they are. All they do is fool the computer into seeing different readings of various sensors causing it to make changes. Basically a couple of diodes and resistors being sold for 1000% profit. Besides, they do more harm than good.
