Ok, I had Wayno be-cranky from powerchip call me today, in a somewhat agitated state as he thinks I dissed his product..
well firstly, I didn't... you need to read what I wrote, which I stand by
and secondly, he seemed to have forgotten that I am a happy customer of his!!!!
I have been sent some video and screenshots of what I can only assume is your car ferrarista... being dynod.... those power figures you quote here are not what I have seen... in the data I have been shown shows a gain of 24.4 bhp... which is pretty good none the less...
although, when you look at the graph and video I've been sent, it ALSO shows ~20 BHP gain at IDLE speed.....
so for now, I'll not share the info as I've asked wayno to clarify the test procedure. Clearly, that gain at idle cannot be relied upon, so what about the rest of the test?
Suffice to say, I stand by what I said...
1) The are significant gains to be FELT from partial throttle use as the engine can be told to deliver more power for any given throttle pedal input, provided it's less than 100% of course.
1a) I am a happy Powerchip customer
2) The only really tangible gains are above the std rev limit.
3) If you want a REALLY fast 360, buy a 430.
I guess I implied it may not be worth it... well thats subjective based on what you consider "worth" to be.
For me, the price of a decent chip tune is two months mortgage repayments, to some however, it's just a big lunch with a nice bottle of wine.....
Luckily, they DO offer a money back guarantee, so what more product confidence can you ask for?
