I used a Gtech Pro to test my quarter mile before and after. Before the Superchip I was doing 14.4 at 103mph, after the Superchip I did 13.8 at 106mph. For each test I did 3 runs and took an average.
In less than 15 minutes and a few hundred bucks, you can add 30 horsepower or more depending on the model year of your Ford Mustang. My Mustang is an upgraded 1999 GT and I had my Superchip custom programmed for all the modifications that I made to my car.
The Superchips unit plugs right into the back of the stock car computer ECU (engine control unit).
*Don't forget to disconnect your car battery for 10 minutes during this upgrade; this will allow the car computer to recalibrate itself. You know that you have done a proper job resetting your computer if when you start your car, you notice that all the gauge needles sweep to the left then back.

This is Part 3: of my brother Mustang GT series. In the video, Enough was Enough, the motor came apart, and new lungs were installed, along with new cafe muscles aka the drivetrain. Watch this video and watch a fellow Mustang enthusiast do everything himself as he has from the beginning.

What separates real Mustang ENTHUSIAST from a Mustang owner, this is it.
