    What peformance chip is better for 02 dts?

    i want to improve performance on my 2002 deville dts and im considering a performance chip. i dont expect it to improve a tremendous amount but atleast a good kick up.
    Questions- do they really work? what chip is better? how much should a good one run for? who makes it? where do they go installed? whats the typical peformance improvement of a chip and whats expected?

    thanks

    My good man......chips dont exist for your vehicle...Im sorry...HOWEVER....AJ does exist on this forum....dig a little deeper in the Northstar PCM tuning section. you will see that for a fair price to a newcomer like yourself, he will tune your PCM for added performance....

    I will look for a chart to ID the flash chip.
    You can remove the chip and install a socket and the install a removable chip.
    Hmmm too much work.

    Re: What peformance chip is better for 02 dts?

    What AJ's telling you is that there is no such thing as a performance chip, tuner, or commercially available aftermarket PCM for our series of N* vehicles. If anyone on earth can give your car a small performance kick, AJ can, with time and patience. There are literally NO aftermarket performance mods, save a CORSA exhaust and some in-house air intake tinkering, for our cars. Read ALL the threads concerning air intakes, exhausts, cats, mufflers, etc. Someone in here...Hitmoney...can smell a good DTS mod a mile away. Read up and be happy with what you have.......

    Please do not support IPOD. They had a law suit with Creative. I am a Creative supporter. Viruses come from apple supporters trying to kill the man LOL

    Welcome to Cadillac. Your choices are
    Cold Air Intake from Volant.
    Exhaust from Corsa
    Tuned PCM form AJ

    That's about it. BTW there have been people that do the iPod thing. Look in the audio / video section for that. I think they do it through splicing into the CD changed interface.

    full length exhaust is a must on these cars...followed by volant or custom air intake, 80mm throttle body by RVM or other supplier...you can hand port your intake if you wish, port out your exhaust manifolds while your pipes are off, put in a torque converter, LSD, etc...the mods are there...just most have to be custom done or come at a premium price...there are several cadillacs on the boards that run low 14's high 13's and some even faster...mark99sts is somewhere in the 12's or better with his turbo system...

    any idiot with money can make a camaro or mustang fast...it takes a special kind of idiot to make a cadillac fast

    Who the heck is RVM.

    AJ; the torque converter is easy. If you have the money the waste get a Yank. They're supposedly the best. If you're like me and on a budget I can put you in touch with the guy I was working with. His name is Andre from Edge Racing. I had a very lengthy discussion with him and we decided together that 3000 RPM Stall with an STR of 2.40:1 would work best in my car that we wanted to keep drivable. That was $450

    If you talk to them let them know I sent you. This guy was real nice, not pushy and I ended up not buying because my transmission guy put everything back together before I could get this ordered. Then he refused to take it back apart to install it for me. I wonder what someone would charge just to change the TC.

    codewize- thanks for the info on ipod but ive checked EVERYWHERE (including here) and EVERYONE says its a NO GO.....so ive settled for an aftermarket Pioneer Avic D3. Its a Sweet HU for a reasonable price.....

    LSD ~ Engineered Performance (that's where Mark got his as I recall at $900ish)

    TC ~ Yank (also where Mark got his at $3-500ish)
