I found some time to install the chip yesterday afternoon. The overall power/torque curve feels much smoother. Before I put the chip in, response was somewhat anemic up to about 3800 rpm, at which point there was a sudden burst of power and the car took off. Now there seems to be more oomph at lower rpms and smooth revving up to redline. I'm very satisfied. It's still too early for me to comment on the chip's effect on fuel consumption.

: : Please post your experience concerning your chip upgrade. How are power and fuel consumption developing? How much was the chip?
