Isn't like the older days (I say older because old days was carbs) where you burned a chip to put in the engine computer (like Grand Nationals). Programmers are pretty the way to go now and are capable fo doing much more, including diagnostics (pulls trouble codes & resets most general ones). The only "chips" you really find now for modern vehicles (besides the Jet chip) are actually air intake resistors to try and fool the computer into thinking the intake charge is cooler than it is. Get the Superchips (or a Diablo).
