Jim-CO Chapter Dictator
When it comes to cams, intake manifolds, headers, superchargers, etc., etc. then I live, eat, breathe all of that. Oldschool has taught me well. When it comes to Chips & Programmers I am thoroughly lost from the start. I am not really talking brand name. I am talking about function. For example when I go and look up whatever is available for my Ram I get into programmers, but no chips. <span class="ev_code_RED">So, my first set of questions; What is a chip? Is it something that comes with the programmer? If not, would it be necessary to help with the performance or mileage? Is it really required at all for just a daily driver? Where the dickens is it on my 08?</span> I think, after reading a few replies on here, I am some what clued in on the programmer. My best advantage to buying a programmer will come when I need to tow some weight around and - I believe - find it necessary to turn off the MDE. <span class="ev_code_RED">My only question for the programmer is this; Once I have the programming done, can I remove the programmer and keep the settings?</span> I am "seriously clueless" and would appreciate any answers or links to educate myself on this topic...Thanks in advance.
