My car with the JC chip ran alot smoother than with the Dinan. All the way up to the 7000 range.

...just watch out for detonation under full throttle conditions at about 5500 rpm. Detonation (pre-ignition) is very very bad for your very very expensive S14. I switched to a Dinan chip and cam gear. Not quite as much punch as the Jim C. chip in my opinion, but no detonation either.

Really i had my chip in 92 and i intalled myself, since then i drove my car thinking that was really cool my stupid chip, yesterday i install the original one just to feel the diferance, and you could not belived it was exactly the same, well im not a dyno but it really did not felt anything, im disapointed could someone tell me which is the really best chip for my m3 e30 1988.
