Does anyone know where I can pickup a Diablo Computer Chip in the Vancouver or Lower mainland area?

You can try Mopac, but my favorite place is Best Buy Wholesale in the Fleetwood/Cloverdale area. Best buy always has the best prices with out all of the BS that Mopac shells out every time I go there.
Good Luck.

Well, I never recieved an answer on the posts that I have posted reguarding chips for a 1990 F-150, just other ppl talking about chips for new trucks. If you can still help me out, please do so.

Thx
Randall

Here's your post over there:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/dcforum/DCForumID100/728.html

I answered twice in that thread about your truck and didn't say a word about newer trucks. You said you were interested in MAF and I told you that if you bought a kit it would come with a new computer. When you make the changes, because of the larger injectors, you'll need a chip custom programmed for the new computer.

You posted another question there yesterday, but I don't work the entire weekend answering questions. :-) Gotta get some rest and relaxation some time!

Well Randall here are a couple of suggestions:
1. Support this site and purchase a chip from the online store.
2. Take the entire induction system, including MAF, PCM and wiring from a 98-93 5.0 liter mustang, and bolt it into your truck.

3. I dont know if you researched this, but actual dyno test show that EEC4 chips only make 5 horsepower on average. I had a 5.0 mustang running low 13s naturally asparated, and I had access to a dyno which I used as much as I could. I only saw a gain of a few HP with the chip. Thats for a whoppin 400 bucks.

I took the chip out, and bought a adjustable fuel pressure regulator. I adjusted the fuel pressure and timing on the dyno and managed to get 15 horsepower gain. Needless to say I sold off the chip.

My advice to you is to forget the chip and tackle the main point of power potential. Rip off those heads and get them professionally ported. You will gain up to 40hp!! I did it to my car and man was it worth it. Add on some equal length headers, and free flowing exhuast and you will have some power you can actually feel.

My appologies to the administrator, I know this may not be the best place for this post, but it the best I could find
