Why Not! I did try them on two of my cars and LOVE THEM! The price being low doesn't mean the chips are useless... See other postings on these chips as they are now selling V12 chips as well and people who used them highly recommed them. I guess if you have to shell out $900 for similar chips then you'd think they are worth it!

I'd say go ahead and give them a try and you will be impressed.. After all you will spend close to what an air filter cost anyways so no big dent to your wallet.. Just my opinion.[;)]

I bought the chip for the V12 and it made a difference,but they say it is for stock car and at the same time they recommend the K&N as well.
With K&N you can feel the kick!
For $150.00 can't complain.
The car screams not only 1-2 but 2-3 and I LOVE IT!
It is worth trying...

Mr TheVpwr

was it very hard to install?
what about the K&N

could a novice do it himself or would we have bring it to a mechanic?

Not hard to install,the chips come with ilustrated instructions and very easy to follow.1/2 hr to 45 min.They do not mention if the battery should be disconected,but I did it anyway.
If you decide to try the chip,send them the VIN# too.
Some cars made in late '93 are '94 model.
Good luck!

on his ad in ebay he mentioned something about solving the idling problem...did you have that problem and did it solve the idling problem?
I have the exact same year and model as you...
