hey looking to get a few small performance upgrades on my R/T... i was wondering if getting just new muffler would do anything? or would i need the entire exhaust system to get any real output:4-dontknow:

also i saw a stupid chip on ebay, 8.95 for 45+hp and 12+mpg.... sounds way to good to be true, i almost want to buy it to just see what it does, since its only like $20 including the shipping, and if it doesnt work, then o well, its not like i spent a fortune... what are your guys thoughts on this

That is what they want you to do. They get 20 or 30 people to do what you are about to do and that is free money in their pocket... From what I have seen, they do give you a gain, but not what they are stating... If you get one, let me know what value the resistor is so I can put one on my car!! LOL

No it does nothing like sphinx said trying to take ur money, if u want to give monney away i need it give it to me lol, Dont buy it get a chip that u can actually read up on and c actual results on. If u just want to do minor modds intake,exhaust and chip there are some minor modds. If u have any questions on modding or how to do it just ask

Armitank, do not buy that chip off of ebay. Its useless. So much so, if you send me half of what they are asking, I will send you nothing in return, and you will probably see as much performance gains for half the cost. ;)

^LOL, you guys! AvengerRT, and Bullet are right. That 'chip' does nothing. If you do decide to try it though, PM what is inside the box they give you. I would like to know for some silly reason... maybe I will start making them and selling them on ebay... lol!

Jet Tech has a chip...or should I say controller for the 2.4L. you need to tap into a few sensors on the wire harness. Has anyone installed this "chip" and if so have you noticed any gain in performance. I added a flow master 40 muffler and K&N pane filter and noticed slight gain in low end acceration. the car sounds great

There are several members that have installed Jet Chips. From what I have read, they all swear by them. They are a good performance upgrade from the stock chip. I think the stage 2 chip requires CAI, exhaust, and premium fuel... which the manual recommends to NOT use premium fuel. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

I think the chip adjusts the computer so premium fuel can be used properly...in that case (with the chip) I think premium would work alright.

On the Caliber side the 2-4L engine is standard on the R/T. A few members have installed the Jet "chip" and had problems with the engine.
