: : and torque. They say all it is good for is to remove rev limit and top speed. Is this really true? Jim I just bought your software upgrade and I would love to hear your imput on this matter. I heard that you said it was due to enviromental chages etc. but I need a better reason than that to justify my $399.00.Please assure me that this is not true, and roundel mag has no idea what they are talking about. What are your final claims on the torque/HP/ 0-60mph improvement after this chip? Myself and a lot of others are listening. Thanks.

article. To educate yourself, get ahold of that article and read it...You'll find that in some measurements, there were hardly any differences, but in others, particularly the rolling start, and rolling acceleration numbers, differences were significant....Greater than a second, for instance on the hi speed acceleration test.
