Tuners and/or chips for manuals?

With a manual trans does a chip or tuner really do much for you? Can you chip or have a tuner on a 1995, it's a 1995 1/2? Also is one better than the other?

For a 1994 do you need the computer reflashed with the obdII compliant program before you can chip or tune it? Or does is depend on the programmer?

im looking for more low end power,

Chips have the ability to change programs on-the-fly. Tuners usually require uploading old and downloading new for a program change. Cheers!

As I told you in the last thread, a 1.0 housing will start boost WAY earlier. A good chip will also toss more fuel at it earlier, causing it to boost earlier. A programmer sucks and doesn't have the power/mpg gains as a custom chip.
