I too would like some encouragement in order for me to blow 400 on software. I read the article and they said that older cars perform better with newwer software b/c the old softare is outdated. Someone once otld me that the software workd better if you have and intake. What do you people with the chip think? Did you notice immediate gains? or did you get the chip at the same time as other upgrades (this can make you think that the choip worked)?thanks

: 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.
