Many things that improve "power" do not increase mileage. The cheap and
easy way to improve power for this motor is to adjust the amount of fuel per
stroke delivered by the fuel injection pump which is done by changing the
resistor in the fuel solenoid driver connector socket. A chip will do some
things like change the shift points on your transmission, increase your rev
limiter, change when your turbo dump valve opens and closes, etc. but to get
real power from this motor is going to take more than just a chip alone.
To make this motor a real performer you will need to spend some serious
money. Personally, I would recommend (aside from the chip) an intercooler,
marine grade fuel injectors, lower compression pistons, the later style
water pump with dual thermostats and crossover, and an FSD cooler with at
least a #9 resistor in the FSD connector socket (a #15 would even be
better). At that point you should start to worry about beefing up your
