Without F/I or higher compressoin, there is absolutely no use for a chip. It won't do anything for you

^+1.... unless you have an auto and you plan on getting a venom 500 or something... from what I've heard, it reduces delay before the car downshifts.

Well, you can get a chip from http://www.phearable.net/usdmchipkit.html
That place makes quality chips. I'm not sure if they do autos but, you can try.
