Default Anyone ever use this?!

http://www.torquechip.com

I have a 1993 Turbo sedan....anyone every use this on their 2.2L Turbo?? Anything good to say about it?? Anything bad?? Any other electronic performance chips for my legacy that you'd recommend???

Their website seems a little "sketchy" to say the least.

Thanks guys
Danny

I've looked at them, and considered buying one, but after reading about this particular product and it's previous incarnation as the JC Sports Torque Chip II, the details on what it does are really quite lacking.

I'd recommend a lot of things before this.

I know the guy who makes these chips.

I asked him.... how does his chip vary from the proECM chip and such. His chip is more conservative, however the hp claims on the proECM chip are a little exagerated and some people have been known to get CEL's from them, some sporodically, some all the time.

If you want more details about the chip, email him. Al is a good guy.

It's really hard to say what I want to do. I don't want to end up spending sooo much money on stuff I don't need or want when they're are so many products and upgrades out there. I'm pretty happy with the performance of my car right now, but it seemed like a fairly cheap mod. I think it's time for a manual boost control.

Thanks for the insight guys.

Since your car is turboed you may be able to benefit from the Voltage Clamp that comes with the ProECM chip. Otherwise there is a $32.99 Chip that is adjustable and does the same thing with the exception of removing the speed sensor by tapping the Engine RPM feed to the ECU and fooling it.

Heres the link.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=205507

You can use a resistor inline with the coolant temp sensor to fool the ecu into thinking you are running cold. A mild "Chip" in this respect would be a not so drastic resistor that would allow the engine to run closed loop when it needs to but will still read a lower then actual coolant temperature. The "more aggressive chip" that causes check engine lights change the coolent temp signal drastically enough to force the ecu into open loop mode all of the time or most of the time.

With the adjustable $32.99 chip you could tune the coolent temp signal so the ecu remains in closed loop mode when it needs to but still shows a lower coolent temp to the ecu which results in slightly advanced timing and a set change in Air Fuel Ratio.

The torque chip should give you as much extra power as a lightweight pulley, hence the $250 mark. With the pulley weight savings you get better low end torque and with the chip you increase your upper end
