GTV V6 Turbo

Re: Gtv V6 Tb Owners Give A Report

Both people I knew on had chipped with the Squadra Tuning chips. No probs, but they were well looked after relatively new cars ~ 5 years ago.

Here's a link to someone else on here who's gone down the same route: -

I will do mine eventually. I've got my eye on an engine which I was looking to rebuild.

Re: Gtv V6 Tb Owners Give A Report

I've done mine, by Squadra tuning and I have found no drawbacks at all actually...

..well maybe one, if you let Squadra install the chip, he checks all your motor functions and there you might get some surprises (I had a faulty knock-sensor limiting turbo pressure to 0.5bar and an intermittent failing ignition sensor).

But other than that, the car went like an ARIANE-4 lunar rocket before and now it's like an ARIANE-5! As in the link in the post here above, the effect is quite big. The push you get once the turbo kicks in has doubled and the engine is just that bit happier to rev.

Fuel consumption is identical as before to even better than before, no irregular idling of something, just improvements (and no, this is not a commercial )


Only Crusoe got his work done by Friday

Re: Gtv V6 Tb Owners Give A Report

I'd go for it, a well developed chip such as the Squadra has been tested on many cars.

It is the generic £20 jobs you see which are either copies or rubbish on ebay etc. to be wary of

Your only other option is a remap of the chip on the rolling road, but I think finding someone with the expertise/equipment may be tough.
