: I am a proud owner of a 98 m3 4dr. I am planning to put a dinan chip or some other company chip but I wanted your guys opinion on what chips u have and price,etc. My car is totally stock as of right know, In houston, there are lot of m3 owners who drag and I am just afraid of losing to them.

: U gotta Keep up with the competion!!!!!!

: thank for the help

Momentum in Houston can simply load the new Dinan engine program. In various threads Dinan seems to offer a more conservative upgrade with the benefit being less warranty concerns. J C chip gets the performance advantage, especially in low to mid range.

Don't have quantitative results on Dinan, but you will feel what I would characterize as a broader surge like the vanos action over 3500-6000 RPM.
After looking at many dyno charts, view them with a hefty dose of skepticism.
