    Does anyone know of a good engine performance chip or programer for a 2004, 2.7L?

    end your searching now and begin looking for something more worthwhile. I promise you there are no chips worth a cent that will do anything for your truck's performance. these chips that everyone wants are 80's and 90's tech during a time when computers and especially car computers were in an infancy. With the modern ECU's in vehicles, they are designed to work a certain way and will in fact work around any "chip" you attach to it. if anyone sees any gains with a chip it is either a strong opinion or short lived as the ECU will learn the abnormal fuel maps being thrown around and will correct it.

    you want performance then look into HARDWARE. not software. headers, exhaust, intake, turbo/super, etc.

    Don't expect much with header/exhaust and CAI either.

    Search Deck Lid Mod. Almost free intake improvement.
