The best thing you can do about chip'ing you'r car,is a "handmade" one,made for you'r car.Ex. Uni-chip.But if there are nobody in Finland making theese,I can see the problem.Try to make a search on "Uni-chip" on the web,maybe a dealer will show up.
Hi again, Mikko
I'VE JUST HAD A UNICHIP FITTED WITH GREAT RESULT BY TS MOTOR IN SWEDEN. ON THEIR WEB IT SAYS THAT A DEALER IS COMMING SOON IN TURKO - I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S A 1000 KM AWAY FROM YOU. FIND TS MOTOR AT www.tsmotor.com MAYBE THEY CAN TELL YOU MORE NOW - SAY HALLO FROM ERIK IN DENMARK.
I'm impressed. Performance graphs, driver opinions (which were all very good), and full and detailed installation instructions.
I'm seriously interested in one for my V6, especially as with one fitted, together with an airfilter/exhaust combo i could see over 180 bhp!
The claim for the V6 is an increase of around 16 bhp at 5800 rpm. Impressive stuff.
Yep thought you'd be impressed it's a good start you can gauge then if you think 180 bhp is enough for you without it getting very expensive! As for the filter I know Alfa Owner can supply you with a BMC which are italian and about the best, as for exhaust probably Supersprint there a little extra but pretty widely accepted as top drawer, hope this helps.
Oh and Ian who runs AlfaSalv lives about 8 miles from me and is a top man so no worries about ordering and stuff we all worry about these thing's from time to time but rest easy.
Realise this discussion is a bit old but a while ago I saw a Swiss frim called Digital Motors advertising a chip for my V6 that promised 25hp and 20% more torque. Now I've recently noticed that their website "digital-motors.com" is down, but they used to advertise in the UK Autocar magazine. Does anyone else know about this firm and what its doing???
I've been looking for a suitable chip for a while too and while getting a chip uniquely made i.e. uni-chip etc, they don't seem to provide great increases in power. Perhaps the most suitable I've seen was a Powerchip Gold series (for tuned engines) that offered 17hp increase (for a V6).
I have just had my 2,0 16v Uni Chip'ed giving + 14HP and 11% torgue (+ 19% at 3k rpm). This plusses was on allready better than standard figures (163HP / 196Nm).
UniChip (Destek) are a NZ company.
The 2.5 v6 in that, is by all accounts meant to be quite good. It has nearly 200 bhp, and quad cams i believe. The only thing that can save that car!
Had an interesting go with an Audi TT yesterday. Overtaking slower traffic uphill leading of a one lane road. I pulled out quicker than him, so i had some lead, and although he was catching me, i kept that distance between us quite well. I was quite impressed. Wonder if it was the slower version though!
Also, one good thing about this weather we're having in the UK at the moment.
The colder air is deffinately giving me more power!
Yes, I'm afraid that a Vectra GSi has nigh on 200bhp (there is a detuned 2.5 also) and vicious 2nd gear wheelspin to boot so I think that's one to avoid unless you've done a bit of tuning! Stick to the Bimmers!
