Question Performance Chip Question

First of all, who makes a chip for a '95 2.2l Legacy? Would a new chip be needed if the car was eventually turbo charged, or would the same chip work?

Thanks in advance,

-Charlie

If you're planning on adding a turbo kit to your car, I'd probably suggest the torque2.

The reason being is that Al, the guy who made it, has made some modifications in the newer chips to hold timing at a certain point if you've added an aftermarket turbo kit. The reason you want to do this is because n/a cars have more advanced timing then turbo cars. When you add a turbo to a n/a car, if you have too advance timing you can create detonation and then bye-bye engine. By not allowing the timing to increase past a certain point, the chip can help save your engine, as well as possibly allow you to safely run more boost.

Email Al, if you have any more specific questions.
