I don't really have any complaints about performance now, but when I hit 100k miles/10 years, I'll give it a whirl. I plan on keeping mine past 100k ... thinking 150k, which is what I seem to be getting from my Mitubishis. :D

Looks interesting and straight forward. I'm am more than happy with the current performance, though appreciate the improved claimed performance, will I'm sure appeal to the more young blooded members.

What setting do you run on? And how hard do you drive the vehicle? I am just curious how well the transmission has held up with this box I am considering one.
I'm running it on setting 6 and accelerate pretty hard with it, I don't do crazy speeds but for overtaking and that it pulls alot harder than standard. It's two clips to remove so easy to put back to standard

I looked into this and can't find enough information on how it works or dyno graphs and air fuel ratio charts? Does it change timing also? What does it do? Is the eclipse cross they used to make the tuning box" still running?
Do you have to use 93octane now?

Just saw this post. @Mountainsofbeer - Tells you a lot about a company, huh?
If anything, at best it's probably crank readings, or simulated through one of those "on-board" dyno apps.

So, using this as a benchmark, I wouldn't expect much. Also remember that, no matter what ratings an engine puts out on the crank, there's always drivetrain lossy to consider to the wheels --- this is what these simulated dynos don't show you. In the end, so-called 200hp performance ratings will only really get you to about 120hp/150lb-ft at the wheels on AWD, after all the mechanical drag introduced by the drivetrain.

True performance numbers don't come from a chip. Or a bolt-on without proper tuning. Doesn't matter what vehicle or what year you're in - some things will never change.
Even if your vehicle is turbocharged, you always want to ask yourself - "is this really getting me the power I want"? Especially considering the risk. I highly doubt neither the engine internals nor CVT are up to the task of even a mild uptick in performance.

I posted something somewhere about a throttle response controller - there's something that might be worthy of a look. But a "chip" solution? Hmmm...

Either way, good luck - let us know how it goes.

Right. Never too early to smell the fish.
Every engine is different. Maybe the stars lined up to where torque rating is as the Manu specs indicate :), and somehow, factory HP rating is 10 BHP more?

Anyway, I'll quit. Good luck to those who decide to try it!

I have purchased one as well and the car feels much more responsive than before.
Also I feel better fuel economy but could not confirm as driving style might different

Can yu send me a copy of the installation guide? Are you still using your chip? I just ordered mine based on your 2 year old recommendation haha
I have it for few months now as well and its a big difference in acceleration and performance. i can feel that for sure.
you can find the instruction manual online and also it will come with the box. i have attached it for you as well.

Thank you! What about the difference in performance after installing it? Is it that big difference? Is the power mostly on the low end? Did it affect high speed? Sorry if I asked too much I just wanted to know what I will be dealing with. Thank you again
