Default Jet stage 1 performance chip ?

Hi all it's been a while, anywho I'm curious if anyone has the Jet stage 1 performance chip in there N/A Pt cruiser. The reason why I ask is I am wondering what type of gas you use if it's 87 or 89 octane. The place that put the chip in before I got the PT is stating that if I use 87 it will make the engine ping but on Jets website it states either 87 or better performance at 89. Anywho can anyone dispute or confirm if I use 87 it will make the engine ping, as with gas prices I'd like to use the lesser expensive gas.

Thank you in advance for the reply

Much Respect.

Be Blessed.
Shane

I'm not sure about what kind of gas you use with the chip, but they haven't been very well received on this Forum. Seeing that many are listed on e bay, they can't be that great.

Hooligan's right. I'm pretty sure you have to switch to premium fuel and the price compared to what you get out of it doesn't make sense.

If you read the dozens of other threads on owners trying to "beef up" the N/A cruiser, you'll see that unless you spend a lot of cash (adding NOS, turbo, supercharger) all the little add-ons won't do much for performance.

A decent air-intake and flow-thru exhaust system and keeping it tuned up is the bast way to go. Less weight will help too. If you can do away with the back seats and spare tire you gain more than the Jet chip.

I know it does work, atleast compared to a PT that I drove stock with this one that has the chip. Although I have been toying with the Idea of just taking it out, but don't know how that will work, I.E. if I decide to put it back in if I don't like it out.

Much Respect.

Be Blessed.
