Where is a good place to buy the Chips for our cars. I have a 98 and have trouble finding anything electronic performance wise but assume it is probably the best bet. I am almost stock as it says in my sig, so which chip would be best and where could I find it? I'm not buying an SCT or any programmable setup I have no dyno access.

SCT or sniper are the only choices and you need to program them.
superchips makes them, i know as i have one.
i think diablo may make them as well
Posted via Mobile Deviceyou wouldn't need a dyno for sct since you are mainly stock (I can't see ur sig on the mobile edition though) but you could get a xcal or chip with a mail order tune.

98's have a problem with chips and randomly resetting the pcm and turning the car off. You may want to look into a 6-wire conversion before you begin to chip.

I may be selling my 98 PCM MTA7 w/ SCT Eliminator chip. It's from the 98 in my sig. It has a 93 tune for the mods in my sig. All you would hafta change on your Z is the injectors and do a VCT delete. It would benefit you without the other mods (int./exh.). It was dyno-tuned, and programmed to prevent the "re-setting PCM" problem, too. PM me if you're interested.

Ive never had this problem that they have been talking about with the 98's.

I've only heard of the problem on SCT, not the blue superchips. If you haven't noticed the car trying to and sometimes dying for no apparent reason, you may not hafta worry. I will sell the MTA7 w/ the chip I have. 131.1whp/ 132wtq. FTW
And no, with the mods you have there is no reason you would have to get it dyno-tuned, although it would be beneficial. That really is up to what you are willing to spend for the few extra hp you could gain at the moment on the dyno.
