Hi guys. Well I recently purchased a 87 turbo regal that has a Kenne Bell cold air intake and a Kenne Bell chip. I have 3 different chips from him for the car, street, street/strip, and stip. I want to know what do these chips actually control(timing, fuel, shift points, boost?)and what chip would be the best for running on the street with 92 octane gas? Thanks for any help.

Mainly boost and timing. They probably modify the speed that the torque converter locks up, and maybe how fast the ESC attack and return rate upon knock detection.

Shift points are in the valve body and aren't controlled by the ECM.

Do not have knowledge of KB chips but in general
street = has less timing & boost this is what you would run with the 92 octane I would guess 15 lbs of boost
street/strip = more timing & more boost I would bet you would need as least 93 octane with this chip 17 lbs boost.
strip = most timing - boost and you would need to run race gas with this chip - 20 lbs boost.
As with any chip changes over stock you need
upgraded fuel pump - hotwired
ADJ FP regulator
ADJ wastegate
Boost guage
Fuel guage and
a scan tool.
You turn up the boost for the chip you have with the adj wastegate.
