    Ok everybody has probably heard about SLR Motorsports $50 performance chip that supposedly gives a 50HP/torque gain. has anyone heard any reviews/used them/now anyone whos used them that can give me some feed back? It sounds legit but also sounds to good to be true.

    If its is a scam can anyone recommend a reasonably priced chip for my first gen explorer? (im not looking to spend thousand dollars on a chip for having some fun)

    It's a joke it won't do anything for you. No chip will, the only reason to even consider chipping a 1st gen is if you have very extensive mods, which judging by your signature you don't have.

    There is only so much you can do to program a 93 anyhow. The technology just wasn't there back then. All those $50 "miracle chips" will do is lighten your wallet. 50 HP for $50? I'd love to spend about $200 worth and get 200 HP on mine.

    Snake oil. Avoid like the plague.

    I have heard good things up and eletric fan swap which frees up ponies and adds mpg. Underdrive pullies would help as well but i am unsure if they make them for ohv. If you have the high gear ratio like 3.27 you could swap for some 3.73 or 4.10 which would really give you and acceleration boost. Easiest would be to just swap out the axles.

    Underdrive pullies will work for the OHV or SOHC...they make a noticeable difference: www.stuffforyourranger.com

    Electric Fan also helps. do a search here for chevy HHR fan or taurus electric fan.

    do both of the above and you'll be happy for a while, I think.

    A real chip does work on a stockish truck but don't expect miracles...usually around 10-15 HP max is what you'll see on a 93 octane tune. When I had my 91 EB 4x4 I was getting 155HP/229TQ at the wheels with intake/exhaust/throttle body/MAF and a chip. Doesn't sound like much but it definitely had some get up and go.

    I've got a Diablo Delta chip that holds 3 programs and it will work on your 93. I will sell it to you cheap but you need to find someone who will tune it for you first. PM me if you are interested.
