The year, make and model would be a collosal start....

Hypertech is one of the more well known of the "custom" chip builders out there.

Most "high performance" chips are nothing but trouble as they alter the stock fuel curve and cause headaches which have to be subsequently reversed later on.

A chip generally nets you zero. Depending on the engine, exhaust work, head work, carb/intake work and internal work are what make an engine (engine wise).

Waste of money in my belief.

Depends on the vehicle.

Again, adding just the chip nets you zero in the real world. With stock components, only so much fuel, air and spark and exhaust can be delivered.

Modifications must be done in systems/pairs/coordination. There is no "horsepower in a box".

As for who is best on the Japanese tin for modding, I would say just go to www.google.com and look up Performance Chips in the search box. You should find plenty of companies.

No one is better than the other.
