'resistor mod chips'
'universal timing mod chips'
'race mod chips'
'performance chip'
'adjustable car ECU filter chip'
'electric supercharger'
'electric turbo'
'surbo'

or anything else that claims to give you an instant extra 10bhp, 15bhp...40+bhp................then don't.

Let me make this quite clear...




















These are BOLLOCKS











No wait, I don't think that's clear enough...


























THESE ARE BOLLOCKS












I'm fed up of the number of newbies who have signed up to this forum in the last few months with one of their first threeads asking what we think of one of the above.

Use some common sense. Does it sound too good to be true? Then yes it probably is.

If they were that good then they would be fitted at the factory or used in some sort of motorsport application. Have you ever heard of a rally car being fitted with one of these?



From now on anybody that posts asking about any of the above or similar will be doing so on the acceptance that they will be flamed, insulted and generally have the piss taken out of them with the thread finally being deleted. From now on there is no excuse. Get a grip max power people.
 
I've got a 'performance chip' fitted to my car :confused:

True it cost more than 2p, wasn't bought from the Bay and had to be professionally fitted by a garage..

But it's still a performance chip ;)

No they aren't - I had one on my last car and granted it did nothing for performance but my fuel consumption dropped noticeably.

Got an ecotek fitted, and economy is a tad better, as long as I don't rag the car. Makes a stupid noise at about 1500-2000 revs when you come off the accellerator and just let the engine slow you down though...... And electric supercharger ? Had one on my old car ( a 2.5 merc 190e ) and it worked, but couldn't get it to fit an N16. Ah, well.
