SCT Mail Order Chip Question?

I want to buy a baseline SCT chip for my 347, then have it dyno-tuned at Bottle Blown Racing. Who knows what they're doing when it comes to mail order 347 SCT chips.

I am going to be using an FTI cam, Lightning 90mm MAF, 42lb injectors.

I want to be able to at least drive the car down to the dyno...

This was necassary with an aftermarket maf meter.You will need a dyno or a stretch of road and a wideband to do this.

Car stalled all the time sitting at lights or what not.After the tune It never stalled again.

Haven't yet fired the motor, I just wanted to be able to actually drive the car once I did fire it. I'll report back in a week.

Gentlemen,

Car runs and seems to idle well. Started right up. Haven't driven it though... typical list of first start up things to take care of before I do. Initial impression of the SCT chip is positive.
