My current is one is burned by Brian Herron after he left Apten, so I said other.

But when I get my Lightning, I'm gonna see what Doug at Bama Chips can do for me.

Had an Apten rendition of a SCT chip (two tunes). Had Bama and Hyp add their handiwork to the remaining two banks, then traded in the chip for an XCal2 flasher, all Bama now. The other tunes were good. Bama is superb (at least for me).

I am stickyin' this and re-opening the poll on this poll so people will be able to see what chips people go with the most. Hopefully people will still post their chips.

Also, if it starts to lose interest and people aren't polling it. I will delete it. It is only a copy of the same poll found in General Topic Polls!

I forgot to add my little bit of information. I used a Jet chip to recalibrate my speedo. It worked well (within 1-2%). Very adjustable to dial it in just right.

BamaChips Xcal2 with 3 tunes: with 87 octane performance, 93 torque, and 93 performance. Very happy with it. I mostly use the 93 torque program, but change to the 87 program on road trips.

Any idea of fuel mileage gains with Bama chips, i'm need more fuel mileage help than power, i'm not getting anywhere near advertised mileage 16/21 with 4.0, best I get is 16.5 or 17 all around, and I don't jack rabbit drive

I have a 17.5 gal tank in stock mode I got about 240 miles to a tank.
Add the Bama MPG program and I was getting 280 miles to a tank. That was driving like an idiot. If I drove like I had common sence I believe I could get 300 to a tank.

I had Doug (BamaChips) write three programs ... 87 Performance, 93 Performance and 93 Torque for my Sport. Installing them was painless with the Xcalibrator ... it took 4 minutes. I am very happy with the shifts and performance between my intake, exhaust and programs ... my MPG went up as well which surprised me. :thumbsup:
