    I was just comparing a stock TPI chip to a Stage one Chip and i was pretty suprised. Using a compare function on tunerpro there was only one difference betwwen the two bin's. The only thing that was different was the spak table. The table was advanced by a few degrees across the entire table!

    Yep, typical of aftermarket "generic" chips. Companies have been doing this since the computer controlled carb days. Those chips do exactly what they are supposed to: take the money out of your pocket and put it in theirs. :)

    Sometimes you'll also see differences based on the lower temp thermostats commonly required after one of these chips, since advanced timing tends to lead to problems.
