to take FULL advantage of the trans plus...get the extender chip! nuff said...that chip is pure AWESOME...granted i don't have the trans plus, just the base translator and ls1 maf sensor but my extender chip is programmed with a set 23 degrees of timing due to the alcohol injection i run...with the plus version you can tune spark timing and stuff...

you don't HAVE to use the extender chip but if you want to take full advantage of that combo i would recommend it!

Sorry to bother you guys but could you give me more details of what I would be missing if I didn't use the extender chip? I just bought a new chip, can I have it programmed for the Translator plus??

You lose WOT fueling on the translator box by not having the extender chip.

Regular chips work fine otherwise.

MAF won't read past 255 for fueling without an extender chip.

You also lose special programmed chip features, and others you program or turn on and off yourself, that some chips have already and most don't. Shift light option comes to mind.

Do a search on extender chip for more details. Also go to Ramchargers site or Mike Lichts new companies site for more details.
