2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Chip/Computer Reprogram/towing

OK So is there a chip / performance monitor (adjustable) that can be added to the VUE 3.5L ?
I have heard that by reprogramming the computer or adding a chip that you can increase gas milage and performance.
I am going to be doing some towing with my Vue also and wonder if there is something that I can put in that will allow me to adjust for towing and the like.

Anyone?

Thanks
Jeff

I checked with all the major reprogrammer manufacterers & there is not one available. Not enuff demand.

2006 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: Chip/Computer Reprogram/towing

The marriage between the Honda engine and Saturn/GM body made for a unique computer program that no one seems to want to touch.

Recalling what I can from previous discussions... What you might find on Ebay is most like a cheap mod of the temperature sensor, IIRC, that fakes the computer into running rich. Not recommended.
