I have typically purchased an aftermarket chip/programmer for my trucks. Such as those that raise rev limiters, provide more torque/hp etc. Normally brands/items such as superchips or SCT Livewire. I have never had an issue with any of them on my trucks, always gained more performance without having any mechanical troubles.
My buddy and I each have skeeter bass boats, 21', with Yamaha V MAX SHO® VF250's. His is a ZX model and mine is an FX.
We got to talking about performance and we were wondering if they make anything in the form of a chip/programmer for these outboards such as they do for automobiles?
If so, what are some of the best brands or places to buy from? Also, for those that have tried this type of deal out, what has been your experience, i.e.
- any noticeable gains on hole shot and top end speed?
- any mechanical issues that are for sure from the chip and not just from the user?
