Great service by Stephan at Squadra!

Always willing to hand out advice and the chip arrived in record time

cost roughly £170 delivered

really easy to install in the end... prior to installing i was overly cautious about static electrity so i made sure to wear my welly's, jeans, and cotton t-shirt(nearly went nude to advoid the hassle!)... then grounded myself on the nearest radiator.

took all of 10minutes to install

To be honest i was a tad dissapointed at first as i didn't feel much improvement but after a few heavy footed drives along the quietest, straightest roads i could find, the ecu was quickly adapting

i've noticed considerable improvement in responce from 1.5k upwards where previously i had to wait till atleast >2k for the engine to wake up.

sitting at 80mph the engine is now steady at 3.5k instead of >4k so hopefully i'll be getting improved mpg too!

I'm slowly warming to the chip and hopefully it'll continue to improve over the next few days

Big thumbs up from me!

This would be impossible from a chip though... You'd need too change the gearing to achieve the same speed @ lower engine RPM...
