I appreciate any help on this subject
If it sounds too good to be true it usually is.

Check out the Eurobahn site and see what they claim for a SuperchipsUK programmer and how much they cost and tell me that a chip selling for a fraction of that will give better results. 33% is a huge increase for a gasoline engine and even on the ragged edge for a diesel.

I may be new to this site, I am not new to the Programmer issue having used my Diablosport Predator with three different Fords, including one that we tuned on a chassis dyno.
