what would be better: getting a T/A and manually setting the timing to the desired degree or having a chip burned for the timing desired.

I'd like to add to #2971's question.
Which is the quick/easier of the 2? Is the chip easy to install?

Seems to me that burning a chip on an otherwise stock car would be a waste of money. Maybe after extensive exhaust and/or intake mods it would be more effective, and especially after swapping gears.

A timing adjuster might be more cost effective, especially if you can do the install yourself. (Steeda has good installation instructions on their web site.)

can't agree there Rob. while Ford gave us an agressive "program" in the computer, i've heard from a friend who drag races and works VERY closley with the Ford Racing guys, ..that our engines are capable of MUCH more than Ford programmed them for!...even stock!
(you weren't around back when the club was 1st started but our intakes were developed and tested by Ford Racing......a couple of Mod Motor racers were using our intakes and racing with them back in the summer of 2000)
Ford has to worry about CAFE and pollution controls. a really good engine computer guy could coax more from our engines,...EVEN STOCK!
but you ARE correct that after some mods a custom chip would be even better!!!

I installed a chip and densecharger on my stock Bullitt and did have a noticeable change in performance. The chips are quite easy to install. I did mine myself in just a few minutes.
