I've got the Hypertech Thermomaster chip in my '89 and it was installed around 190K miles ago. I got increased mileage and power along with a cooler running engine, as long as you run 93 octane. And even running that octane, I still come out ahead with what I pay for fuel.

I like the others have no idea about it actually shortening the life of the motor, I really can't see how it would. All you are doing with the modded chips is trying to make the computerized part of your motor run optimally if you run the right motor oil and addatives I can't see how something electronic would harm that in the long run unless you have a failure in the computer it's self.
I put a stage 5 hypertech chip in an IROC I had back in the 80's and the lady in Dublin GA that bought it is still running the car. she (like me) only runs mobil 1 in it and has just started adding Lucas to the oil recently. the car has over 380,000 miles on it and will still squeak the tires at every shift. Just for knowlage sake the Hypertech stage 5 has not been made since 1988 when they were outlawed because they out performed the modded 5.0 mustangs the state patrol and government cars were using back then.
