Shouldn't the chip come with instructions,or have them posted on their website? Chip changes alone are a waste of money,anyways.

This sounds like the old non-emissions carb days.
At one point I was going to swap my stock Aisin 2bbl carb in my '75 Corolla for a pair of Weber 36-DCDs. The project kinda stalled after I discovered that for any sort of real horsepower increase I would need to change the intake manifold, camshaft, exhaust manifold and downstream exhaust system to take advantage of the awesome power of those iconic Webers.
Well, instead of the RIGHT thing, I ended up doing what you would expect any slightly impoverished 19-year-old to do...

Ahhhhhh... The prowess of youth!
Did exactly that on a '54 Mercury that had an engine with poor compression and a six volt system was just not enough to get it started in Winter. Had the family mechanic overhaul it (rings, bearings and valve job) and what a difference! Only thing is that that era of F*rds had a design flaw in the distributor where the ground wire sever. Damned thing failed twice on cold nights where I had to walk home...

Was that still the old flat head? Thought they went OHV in 54 or 55.

read the chipping web sites *very* carefully - unless i'm missing something, none of the chipping mods i've looked at are set up for automatics. you could therefore be spending a bunch of cash and screwing up your car. going faster is a hardware solution, not software.

generally,changing the program without hardware mods screws up drivability;like when it gets cold outside.
