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.
