Wondering if it's a noticeable performance increase?

Also, which chip brand would be recommended?

Thank you,

GIAC chip is one of the only chips for the V6 motor. Expect 10HP and the cost is $300.

If you have nothing else left to do, then go for a chip. I might try an exhaust first, but that would be closer to $900 for about 15-20HP. Sound would be great though. Stratmosphere sells V6 Milltek SS exhausts.

Do It bill, you will be happy with the result's. I have put a remus on both my car's and the improvement was very noticable, And as VB said it sound's great as well. If you have the cash do them both.

Thank you for your responses.

The only issue is that I use this car for business - I work in sales.

As a result, it can't have a performance exhaust system (because of the noise).

I just want the car to be faster without changing anything major.

That's why I figured the chip would be the best solution.

Thanks,

Looks like your only option is the chip. Intakes and exhaust will add some noise. The only thing is a chip and the extra 10hp will not give you that much extra performance. You might not be to tell much difference (5%) although I suspect the chip will change the responsiveness of the car and you will enjoy it more.

Have fun!
