I bought a JimC/Turner chip for my S50; it had one of the best reputations, and made a nice little difference.

Then MarkD made me a quick mapping. It's almost funny how much better it is, all over the powerband. The absolute biggest difference is in part-throttle mapping. I haven't even thought about putting the JimC chip back in, Mark's software is so much better.

Hey guys,
I'm a sponsor here again as of today, so don't forget if you want the best in OBD-1 and OBD-2 software, you should contact me. I have many happy customers all around the world for the OBD-1 chips and many in the Toronto area using my software in their OBD-2 cars. Why settle for less when the best is right here in Toronto.

Hi Denny,

I can tune a motor like yours but if you say it's running well, I'd say leave it alone. Since it is a stage 1 I assume there is no intercooler, and in that case I expect there is not much to gain. If it had an intercooler it may be possible to adjust the AFR a bit if it's too rich, but without one the motor is usually tuned to run richer to help cool the motor.

Thanks Mark.

So If I had an intercooler and maybe a smaller pulley for 1-2 PSI more for a max of 8-10PSI total how much would you charge me to tune it?
