Message:
Hey guys,

Would a Mopar performance PCM be better than a Jet chip stage 2?

Also with either of these, what changes..ex towing etc.

Which one is the better bang for the buck?

Dodge told me today that there are no PCM's available in North America now, but some are being made. Not sure on a delivery date.

any info would be great!!

PCM is the best, short of a custom flash.

Keep your stock PCM for HEAVY towing. Cheaper on gas that way also.

IMO Jet= trash

Lets see which one is better:

Lamborghini or Yugo
Cindy Crawford or Rosanne Bar
V-8 or V-4
20+ HP or 1 HP
hmmmmmm

That is a brain teaser!

Mopar PCM all the way.

It doesn't really change your MPG it just cost more for the premium gas. If your towing more then say 2000lbs for a long distance you may need to use the stock pcm.

To clarify for me.. the mopar pcm is a flash of the stock, or a replacement for the stock?

Where in the world can I get one? and what the heck does it cost??

Thanks much!

They don't make the mopar pcm for the 4.7L, and the custom flashes don't work well on them either. ASE and Jet Chip have not proved themselves, see if the Kenne Belle Optimizer will work.

you have a 2000 4.7, the best way to go is
Mike Leach: (714) 639-5220

you will have to be without the pcm, you need
to send it in to be reworked, but, the $250
spent on the jet II, would be better spent
wiping your ass with.

What kind of performance increase should I expect from this PCM, and is 92 octane high enough or should I go higher?

Hey Crash .. here's the P/N's for the HO cams and intake. Just phone up your local Dodge Dealer and get them priced. They were $108 each cam in Calgary. I didn't price out the Manifold.

Left side = 53021411AB
Right side = 53021412AB
Manifold 3031739AD

I just sent Mile Leach my chip to be flashed. $400 bucks! But from what I've read on the message forum, Jet chips are little better than glorified paper weights. My conclusion: True HP is expensive.

File this in the Dah! file.

Mopar2ya

2 chambered flowmaster, drop-in K&N air filter, synthetic mobil 1, just sent my chip to mike leach for flashing, when it comes back I'm putting a cold air intake, 180 T-stat and autolite plugs in it at the same time.

KIDD- 5.2=/ +24hp/25tq(as advertised ) 5.9= a few more then that. Requires 92 octane or better as the PCM adds alot of timing.
