what performance "chip" do u speak of?

The ebay ones that trick your ecu into reading denser MAF numbers so it just dumps more fuel in and claim 10hp....? not possible. These motors do not really respond to chipping, they bareley respond to a remapped ecu for larger injectors. Start with simple bolt ons, Intake, Header, exhaust ect.

If it's a well known ROM tuner like JWT or Enthalpy, then it'll be worth the money. If it's something else, you're just getting someone's JWT copy of some other person's configuration.

throw a pair of panties at a jwt chip and they will stick everytime.

Throw your wallet at a JWT chip and the money magically disappears, too.

Ok...since none of my compatriots will give you a straight answer (or jsut plain mock you), I'll tell you:
Chips do jack shit for these cars (*with exceptions).
You can purchase a complete ECU for these cars though. Jim Wolf Technologies is one of the few that make an upgraded ECU. The gains are pretty good from what is known, and they have them for various levels of upgrades (cams, header, exhaust, headwork, higher compression...etc.) You can burn your own chips though, hit up Bikirom on that one. You'd need a wideband, or ahve access to one anyhow. You would also need to purchase a EPROM burner (about 50-100 bux), a board (40$ or so), adn a few little goodies totaling about 300 bux. SOunds like a big sum of money, adn a lot of work, but it's kinda the best route to go- escpecially if you are constantly upgrading, or plan on using a poweradder. ANyhow, that's pretty much it :p

JWT will cost you $600

Actually, for a bolt-on only car the best change JWT does is:
Remove the Tip-In Timing Retard [The stock Nissan ECU retards your timing 15-20 degrees at WOT in 1st and 2nd gear]
Remove the speed limiter [actually, they move it to 175 MPH]
Bump the REV limiter to 7200 RPM
Alter the Timing maps a bit [but still very safe/too safe]
Alter the fuel maps [but still very safe/too safe]

The JWT EPROM programing is scrambled as it sits on their add on daughterboard, so you can't do a straight copy/dump of the EPROM...

But I degress...

Cant you send it back in after you get cams/turbo/DSM inj. or something along those lines and get it reprogrammed?

YES.
But Biki is still better IMO...but I ahve experience with rommulator on F-body cars (old 730 ECU's). Tuning your own parameters is more fullfilling, and far more flexible (and for wierdo's like me, entertaining). :redspot

i hear your insurance company will drop telephone pole coverage if they detect a chip in your vehicle...
