    Cool, I didn't know if it was compatible between the 305 and 350. As anyone tried the resistors that are under $10 on ebay. I've never talked to anyone that's tried them.

    most of the restiors on ebay are a rip off. You could go down to radio shack and get the same thing for a few cents. If you are looking for more power start reading about how to burn your own chips.

    Yep, I just started fooling with that myself. Those "off the shelf" chips are a joke. Mostly just some timing and a bit more rich on the mix, that's it. To do a decent job you have to data log what your engine is seeing (WinALDL or the like) and then adjust for that specific engine. Even "identical" stock factory motors have different tunes to get anywhere near max performance, much less "this chip improves performance in 350 truck and car engines from 87-91" type stuff...
