Jim Conforti will customize an OBDII chip any way you like. All you need do is contact him and tell him what upgrades have been performed on your car.

: I've looked into the question of more power as well. It seems that supercharging is probably a better way to go than either a turbo or an engine swap - cheaper, easier, and better integrated with the rest of the car. However, I haven't found anyone who has developed engine management software that's customized for the supercharger. Some folks have said it doesn't matter, while others have agreed that overall performance and efficiency would be better if the software were properly mapped. Fuel efficiency matters to me as well.

: I'd like to hear more from anyone else. While I'm not rushing out to get more power (having just avoided a couple of tickets), I'd like a bit more push.
