There is no such thing as a police performace chip. There is only a police or fleet version of the crown victoria which can be identified by the p71 in the vin number. A p74 indicates a civilian model. Police cars dont have special chips and they dont alter the computer or engine any when they are sold. When you buy a used police car you are buying it with the same engine and computer system that they used when it was in active duty.
The differences between the fleet computer and the civilian computer are very minor.
The main reason a police car is slightly faster than its civilian counterpart is because of the dual exhaust. Different years are faster also. 98-00 is faster than 96-older.01-03 is faster than anything older and the 2004-present has the most power at about 250 hp.
Sorry to burst your bubble about the cop chip. But it is a myth
Anyone who says there is a "cop" chip or that the computer was modified by the police is a liar and is obviously misinformed.
You can however purchase a custom computer program and tuner for the car and load it onto the computer yourself.
