First off, I'd tell ya not to get ignorant with these guys cuz a lot of them know their stuff.

Secondly, spend the money and have Mach burn you a chip to match the motor you're runnin.

Thats about all i know, and I'm drunk right now, so I hope that helped.

ASE can reburn your computer, cost around $300, or you can get a JET Chip, Mach Performance can reburn it, I don't think you can get an aftermarket computer for it.

Your best bet is probably the tec lll from electromotive.Their system uses all gm sensors so you could save some money there and it will be alot easier to install ,get up and running,and trouble shoot .Also the tec lll is a distributorless system,so that makes things alot easier since the 2.2's are distributorless.

yeah the tecIII is insane. i know a guy who is running one on his turbo saturn. stock the engine makes 117hp to the wheels and he is running a turbo kit @ 5psi and the tecIII now he makes 234hp at the wheels, on stock internals. that seems more insane when you see his original #'s from just the trubo no tecIII which was only 194hp

it is simply the best computer control module you can buy. but the only downside is they cost around $1800

Yeah I would go with the mach reburn, not as good as a standalone, but its much cheaper.

a jet chip would be a complete waste of time, im not familar with the mach reburn but they have good products, if i were you i would go with an ase, they put a new chip in your ecu and program it to your engine, if your good with electronics look up megasquirt, its a build it yourself standalone system, can get all the parts for a few hundred, they have alot of documentation and explain very well how to use it, for the money its a very good system but it will only be as good as you can make it

Sorry pal i am far from a ricer the honda was completly stock on the outside. While being stock on the outside it was making 230 at the wheels. But anyways i just sold the honda and i am in the process of either buying a s10 and putting a v8 in it or a 55 chevy...

Come on bro,your gonna jump on the website with a attitude and not expect flak from it?Some of these guys own or have owned imports as well.If your gonna come on acting like a genius,then why aren't you smart enough to find your own answers einstein.These people will be glad to help you if change your attitude.

wow.i see alot of hostility here still.why does everyone have to be sooo quick to be lippy.relax and most of the time youll get all the info the person answering has.ne wayz ase and superchips and mach are not computer systems.all they do is re burn the stock computer flash to adjust to run with a certian program.the kind of system he would need is standalone like a couple mentioned.this is the key way to tune a vehicle in any condition.you see when you do a reburn your comp is still set to run only a certian a/f ratio and time.with a stand alone most of the time you can adjust for every changing condition like for instance more boost with out maxing out your what the computer thinks are its limits.there is also a company out there called ls1-edit.but for the most part haltech or tec lll would probably be the nest and safest route but certianly not the cheapest.

Fastest 2.2 liter

A good friend of mine is using a Motec M4 on his 1999 Cavalier with the 2.4 liter motor. He seems to be having good luck with it. It is a little bit more expensive than the other computers like the TEC 3, F.A.S.T., Haltec etc. But the Motec seems to be able to do more than any of those other standalones. Bone stock, that 2.4 liter should put around 125 at the wheels. He is running 360hp/350tq at the wheels running 20psi. The Motec M4 uses all stock sensors. $1500 for ECU, about $500 for wiring harness, and around $200 for the sensors.

Anymore questions about it, and I will try to answer them.
