    You need more than a custom chip. You need to change the injectors for sure.

    well the truck it is in is a 90 blazer, and he said it runs fine, despite the CE light coming on once in a while when its cold...

    but, forget it, not getting it now, someone already put a deposit on the truck i "was" going to buy with the 383 in it....:mad:
