208 stock PEAK hp - 225 chipped PEAK hp.
The 43 hp gain is quoted from right before redline. What this translates to: As you wind up the engine, it keeps pulling to 6k, where a stock chip's power would taper off at the upper end and it just isn't quite worth it to go all the way to 6k. You generally get better acceleration by going to the next gear.

: Does this mean that the hps increase to ~250????

: 208+43 = 251

: What am I am missing? What does it really do as far as hps?
