if the previous owner swapped the injectors back to stock before he sold it to you then you better stop driving that car immediately. Get that thing on a dyno and get the AFR checked out, you can't just swap injectors without changing the tune the car is probably waay lean right now if this is true.

im really not familiar with the 4 position chips, i just use an xcalII that reflashes the computer.

i think your year still used a speedo gear to correct for changes in the rear end ratio, you'll have to figure out what gears are in there and then buy the appropriate speedo gear.
