    Anything is better then the factory tune. The factory tune is designed for max economy at the cost of performance. Also the factory tune is based of 91 octane fuel so you don't get the full benefit of running 98.

    Do it. Or from The1 on this forum. Manufacturers also tune for EPA who get bees in their bonnets when you produce more gas even though it's burning less fuel more efficiently. Idiots.

    The chip will also improve trans shift points and kick back.

    If you do more mods after you get your tune the car will need a new tune to suit the new mods.

    Hi KrazyTurk ,
    Thank you for your enquiry:

    "do these things work i own a auto V6 VT its basically stock except pacemaker extractors with straight pipe & i run on 98 would a memcal benefit the performance of the car the way it is right now."
    As other users have said above it will give you measurable gains and your engine will make the power smoother along with an improvement in fuel economy.

    If you have further queries please contact us directly.

    Kindest Regards,

    Bill

    A decent tune is well worth the small investment, the car will drive/respond how it should have done when it left the factory.

    Gday guys. I have a stock 304 (5 litre) and want to upgrade the memcal from factory. What would you suggest I get - there are no other upgrades on the engine.
    Cheers, Oz.
