American Motorsport - Group Purchase

2417 Views 29 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  americanmotorsport.com
I am gauging interest in a group purchase. Depending on the number of people that sign on, I will offer a proportional discount on chips or reflashes.

Who is interested?

If we get $10 or more people, I'd probably do something like $25 off the price. If we get $20 or more, I may go lower, and so forth.
So what is that, four thus far?

I need a chip for my 2000 vulcan FFV that will take off the limiters, make the FFV sensor think its running lots of alcohol through it so it will let my injectors pump what they are made to do, and firm up the shifts, and anything else that people like to have done when they get a chip burned. Thanks a mill.
What is your EEC code?
Seems we have 6 interested. Almost there...
Price is usually $325 plus $15 s/h for a stockish car. For the group purchase, prices will be lower, as stated above.

The chip will improve throttle response, engine braking, automatic transmssion performance and overall pep. I will also turn on the fans sooner to have the car run cooler, optimize a/f, optimize timing for more power, firm up transmission shifts, optimize shift points, Revises torque converter function to eliminate shudder and allow it to run cooler and other tuning tweaks. The chip will also remove the speed limiter, Faster manual downshifs, etc.

If you want max power, you will need to run 93 octane. If you chose to run regular, you will not see any power gains, but you will see all else above.

the chip i have now is slamming my trans really hard going into 2nd gear. way more than i think it should be. so much, that i haven't even turned my chip on lately. do u have a program where you can switch back to stock.. and have a switch? depending on the price i might be interested also.
I can make a chip for you that will get the trans pressure right. Ask Dan how his is. I have a ten day satisfaction guarantee, so feel freeto try it out.

Also Have you done any work to your trans? Who made your current chip. I will have flip chips in a couple of weeks,but I think with my chip you will likethe trans feel.

I also offer a Microtuner that will allow you to flashyour car yourself with a file I make, and reflash it to stock if ever need be, but it is a little more expensive than a chip. You can check the details on it on my website if you want to know a little more about it, on the products page, or I can asnswer any questions.

I have an Apten chip (Black Diablo chip blank) and a switch for stock programming. How much would just your programming cost?

I may be able to reburn it. Send me a note.
I replied. Please reply back via e-mail as I check that more often

OK, I have gotten some e-mails and when added with those who posted on here, we have enough people for the GP!

Price will be $25 dollars off the list price. That's $300 plus $15 s/h for each stockish n/a car chip. This included one chip with a custom program for each customer.

Everyone else doing the GP, you can start submitting your orders and payment so that I may start working on the files. Please write an e-mail to [email protected] and write TCCA Group Purchase on the title so I know to give you the discounted rate.

I will then send a custom program sheet to each of you to fill out.

Anyone who has not expresses their interest onthis site can still join by sending the e-mail as above.

I can start shipping each order as soon as each chip is done.

Bob, you should have your EEC tommrrow.

Like I mentioned, although you get some power increase from these chips, as evidenced by Dan's car and others I have worked on, the main performance benefits form these chips come from the enhanced engine braking, improved throttle response, enhanced automatic transmission performance and overall pep. You also get the fans sooner to have the car run cooler, optimized a/f, optimized timing for more power, firmed up transmission shifts, optimized shift points, Revises torque converter function to eliminate shudder and allow it to run cooler and other tuning tweaks. The chip will also remove the speed limiter, faster manual downshifs, etc.

However, for 1996 and newer, I'd guess you get about 10fwhp...with premium.
