You won't be making 190ft lbs tq with a chip on a eta.

Why do people stack chip gains? Thats not how it works.

Take a stock eta, with the average 200k miles. Lets just assume for the sake of ease its still making its stock power output, which is doubtful, but is:

121hp @ 4250 RPM
166tq @ 3250 RPM

Now the JimC chip claims:

HP+ 24 @ 4500 RPM
TQ + 28 @ 4500 RPM

The HP gain is slightly above the curve, and the TQ is significanty below the curve. Neither are adding to the peak. Thus stacking the numbers is a grossly incorrect and ignorant practice.

Now this is not to knock a chip. Etas see greatly increased drivability from a chip. I'm just sick of number stackers.

You must have some math issues because there is no # stacking here, not me anyways. If that was the case, peak torque will be 199 poundns! (171 stock + 28 gain=199!) Thats NOT what i said, there are many dyno charts that show that...For example, BAS chip shows peak Hp at 140, and max torque of 192...
