I am wanting to buy a chip for my v6 by this winter and I was wonderin if any1 knows which would be the best to get. Money doesn't matter really, just some names and what they do would be good. Thanks

from what i've heard, none of the chips are really worth the money they are asking for them. and if you're really not worried about money, then do your basic bolt on mods and get a custom flashed pcm (talk to bernd at speedtweeks.net about this, he's the man when it comes to 3.9's).

The Jet Stage-II did work well on my '97 V6 for a while...but once you start adding a lot of bolt-ons (or even a Supercharger or Nitrous), get rid of it. The programming in them is meant for a basically stock engine with only a cold air intake, 180 t'stat, and a good exhaust system.

dudes,

i had the Jet Performance Chip Stage 2 on my 2000 Daodge Dakota V Sixer and i really did feel the difference. i sold it recently to another board member cause i'm installing the IAT adjuster and cutting out my cat. i am a believer of the chips........ just my 2 cents. again when you go for more bolt ons then the chip doesn't work as well.

mahalo,
Scotty

i took my 2001 dakota in to get my fog lights and a coil fixed and i accidentaly left my jet stage 2 chip on, the guys down there were cool and didnt care (it could void your warranty) but one guy said he hooked the truck up to do a test and it totally messed up the readings so he took the chip off and took it for a drive to see if it contributed to the coil problem, but to get to the point he said he could tell a huge difference when the chip was on and he said it really gets up and goes. so the dealership even said it works its a good investment like bernd said if you have exaust intake and 180 stat

here's my opinion on why i think the stage 2 chip works at all... ( most of you could really care less what i think but oh well ) I think honestly, the only reason the stage 2 chip works at all is because of the 180 t-stat, it's kind of a mind game it plays with you.... If you add a 180 t-stat then it brings the motor into the operating range at which a dodge engine makes it's most power, most dodge engines like to see around 183 to 184 degrees to be the most efficient.... so most of the power and response you get out of the chip is made only because you bring the temps. down to the level at which the engine likes to be at... I think that the chip wouldn't do anything if you didn't install the 180 t-stat and i have kinda proven this on my buddies ram because he installed a jet stage 2 and noticed nothing and even said his truck felt slower, then he added the 180 t-stat and the truck seemed to run normal and had the same power as it had before the chip but with a little better throttle response, but i credit the response more to the 180 t-stat rather then the chip.... Now here's a little food for thought and i'm sure some of you have had to have this done or had the dealership do it, but some of you may have had pinging and then the dealership reflashes the pcm due to too much timing ( or so they say ) but if this were the case then wouldn't you think the motor would ping even more with chip that increased timing, most say the 3.9 runs pretty lean and i have heard most run quite a bit of timing already as it is, but to me adding more timing and even adding the extra bit of fuel still isn't going to make up for it....

this is just my opinion but hey everyone has one right..... so i think for the cost of the chip i could buy a couple of the other mods that really seem to work well and are not so up in the air as to whether or not they actually work as advertised..... just buy the IAT adjuster instead and be done with it, it works just as well if not better then the chip and only costs 35 dollars ( where are you going wrong with this mod )

One other thing Jay. The chip does help in the trany area. On mine it made it shift a little better. I agree on the IAT adjuster but when it comes to winter I'd keep the chip on. Greg

The Jet is a module and not a chip. Check out my post about the ASE performance chips, which are real chips. There website also have information on why piggyback modules do not perform as well as a chip (for those who don't already know).

Sorry, a Module. I checked them out. They are in Anehiem so I called them to see there prices. Not bad. $350 for the whole deal. Only thing I didn't like is the Chip after it's flashed doesn't do anything for the tranny. The Jet module does help it a little. Other than that I might try it. Greg

Stealwings,
If you read under the frequently asked questions, there is one about shift improvers on auto trannies. Here it is:

"14. - Can I use the a Shift Kit with your Chip?
NO! The ASE Chip modifies the Transmission line pressure and shift points, doing so will damage the transmission. To much transmission line pressure is obviously bad for transmission."

The chip is sounding better and better by the minute.
