    I am looking into giving my TDS some extra power and maybe try and eliminate turbo lag, and was wondering if anyone has any experience of chipping or remapping their 325 tds(or 525 tds)

    I have seen a few threads on here that say the chips and tuning boxes are rubbish as they just pump more fuel in. But I would like to hear from anyone who has had either mods and how they find them.

    Cheers guys and girls

    Go with a company with a good rep ie BWChiptune and it will work well.I would avoid the chips you see on ebay because you get what you pay for and although some may be ok there a lot that aren't.With a turbo deisel you should see better gains than with a non-turbo petrol
