there's been a lot of answers to this lately... a ECU tune helps a little, exhaust helps too. If you want performance you need to spend some money.

im looking into maybe like a realtime tuner

Hypertech HyperPAC, Hyperpac Tuner

going to pick one up this weekend then possibly go to a dyno early next week and see how good it is and if it works.

a professional ecu reflash is the best but can be pretty spendy if you keep upgrading parts.

ill post my result by wednesday next week.

On Board Dianostic 2 its the type of computer (ECM)your truck uses.

The first gen of ECMs was OBD1 and did use chips but mass produced chips are a rip off. Later was changed to ODB1.5 and finally ODB2. Neither of the later uses a chip and require the ECM to be reflashed with a new program.

You can get an ecm tune with lifetime retunes for like $200 that's cheap if you ask me!! Like others said"chips" are a scam and do nothing for you if you want real performance your gonna be spending several thousand our just selling your blazer and buying something different lol

And ecu flashes where I live are 350$ each time.
