i have asked this before and never got an answer...but maybe someone knows now. if i could have a few chips at my side i would test it myself, but i don't have the money and time.

anyone...whats the stock initial timing of the zetec motor, and the spark advance at 3k. then the initial timing with diablo or superchip, and once again at 3k...i'm just trying to see how much timing is added into thede chips.

As a Superchips dealer, I can tell you that they will not give out the numbers that they use, but if you pay for custom programming and specify what you want, you can most anything. I have a few custom programs that add 15,25, and 40% more timing than stock, but that is only for JFA6,7,and 8 calibration codes.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I think the question has to do with the base timing map value.

Actual timing has may variables resolved into it. Such as Load %, TPS value, TPS rate, IAT, ECT, etc. These conditions are modifiers to the base timing map and will affect the timing values that appear on the scanner.

If you could duplicate all of the conditions with and without the chip you would get a good idea.

TPS = Throttle Position Sensor

IAT = Intake Air Temperature

ECT = Engine Coolant Temperature

TPS is used by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) to get the actual throttle plate position and the rate of movement. In other words, how fast or slow are you mashing your foot down on the accelerator and how far are you mashing it.
