    Do performance chips work? If so, any suggestions on a cheap and effective one? Thanks.

    In my own imaginary world, where. Respect for wome
    SCT all the way. I have owned an Edge and prefer the SCT over it. Now, you can get custom tuned Edges ( they are called Gryphons) or you could get a custom tune for your SCT from 5Star (they are a vendor here on the forum). Either way, yes, a brand name chip is worth it.

    I was thinking about getting an SCT but is there a free tuning software that I can use to tune it if I install turbos? Its a 97 f150 4.6
