<strong>You pesky kids!!
This goes for any chip that I am personally aware of, not just Squadra:
Having had a Squadra for a while now and then having a new ECU which I didn't put the Squadra back into, my feedback would be as follows:
If you had to guess wether the chip was fitted or not it would be pretty difficult, the difference is very subtle indeed and in my opinion not worth the money. That said my car already had in excess of 230bhp and ****e loads of torque so another little bit was not going to make that much difference. They are well worth having on Turbo cars but not on powerful normally aspirated engines...it's a fair old wedge to pay out and with hindsight I would have rather spent the money on new brake discs and pads or something.
I have seen lots of reviews where the owners absolutely rave about how fast thier car is and how much stronger it pulls but the actual figures done on 0-60 times, 1/4 miles etc are pretty laughable really, me thinks when someone has spent that much they have to convince themselves that their car has become some 900bhp beast overnight.

Just the physics of it all cannot do anything other than work, turbo car or not. I agree, and it is common sense that on turbo cars it can make a bigger difference.
I am sure mike must have other issues with his car which he has put down to the chip not really being up to scratch? (Air flow meter????)
Order away, you will not be dissapointed and thats a promise...
