    hi ive been lookin at ur end tuning web site a little n wondered what sorta extra bhp one of your chips would make on my engine n how hard they are to fit also i used to hear of stories of chips makin cars unreliable or more prone to problems ? im not sure how much truth was in it ? can i get a chip which has extra power but not so much im guna get problems ? im quite tempted as it seems a good money to power upgrade cheers ta

    There is a brief fitting guide here
    http://endtuning.com/chipfitting.html
    Your ECU would be slightly different, and have some screws to remove and a top lid.

    I'd say you'd be looking at 15-ish bhp on top, and there isn't any reliability issues that I know of. It's never pushed too far, just far enough!

    Glad you're happy.

    The numbers can be in different places, sometimes info missing, and I've even seen fixes where it looks like Bosch or Siemens ran out of the standard chip types, and had to make a quick fix and use a more expensive one instead!
