In Reply to: Jim Conforti 530i chip question posted by Steve on March 29, 1999 at 19:46:47:

: I just installed a Jim C chip on my '95 530i / 5 speed/ has air pump to intake box. When I come to a stop the rpm's drop to 500 causing a slight surge in rpm's. Also, when just crawling in 1st or even 2nd the car has tendency o buck much more than with the original chip. Any clue what's wrong or is this normal. Otherwise it is much smoother, and more respnsive especially between 2300 - 3500 rpm's
: Also couldn't get orignal computer holding(what a bitch)clips back in, I temporarily wedged two small pieces of paint stick until I can get help.
: Thanx in advance for any help or advice

Steve, RIGHT after i sharked my 525i, it was a little rough on launch like you mention, but it smoothed out after about 40-50 miles. The computer needs to "relearn," similar to when you disconnect the battery for an ext. period. Also, it's important to have a full tank of premium BEFORE installing the chip. If it doesn't smooth out, give them a call, you might have a buggy happens.
