Bill,

Not sure about the other chip you mention but I had the Dinan upgrade you mentioned done to my '96. It is really a program upgrade vice an actual chip. I've been very pleased with mine. I noticed an immediate increase in performance - especially in the upper end. It seems to have gotten even better over time (it's been about 8 months now). No other work is required and the upgrade takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Email me if you want other information.

: I have been looking for ways to boost my 96' 1.9 up a bit without spending 3K for a supercharger. While checking the archives I found info on a Dinan chip upgrade and a chip upgrade from a Jim C. I am fairly new to the message board but have noticed that people have very strong opinions about this Jim C. guy. I gathered that his work was top-notch from what I read. How do I reach him? Any opinions on the subject? Will a chip upgrade require any other changes to the car? Will normal driving MPG be affected much? Sorry for all the questions but any help would be appreciated!
