    A mate has just got a tds for nowt, got it sorted after having fueling issues and wants a bit more power. After a search it seems this can be chipped? (two chips maybe??). Has anyone done this with good results, and could someone recommend a decent company or site to get the chip(s). It's a cheapo project really, got about a million miles on it and doesn't really matter if it goes bang!

    Yes they can be chipped and it does require two of them/

    Also look into a de-cat and EGR valve delete

    The engine is supposedly tunable to 180bhp and lots of torque

    Cheers. Did you chip yours before the M3 lump went in? Know of anywhere decent to get the chips or is it a case of suck it and see?

    I saw his car earlier and it sounds sweet as a nut (no rattles or noises), not bad for 305k!
