: 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.

I agree with Roundel. I have a 95 m-3 and measured acceleration times with a stopwatch across all gears and rpms directly before and after the Dinan chip upgrade. My post chip numbers were actually slightly slower. Of course it is nice having the revs bumped and top end, but those were my results.
