My 1992 Volvo 245 with vx cam 5 degrees advanced, ipd sport exhaust and TLAO fuel chip and white injectors is great car now revs freely and much better freeway driving. I just purchased a chippable ezk from Phil and can wait to install the ignition chip.

I have not done any 16v n/a cars, while it can be done without any local cars to tune on I would not be happy with guessing.

Default PM'd 3/31/17 for chips

Mike, I PM'd 3/31 asking about chips for a 9xx LH2.4 and EZK, red block with a 531 head with larger valves (46/40) and stage II porting, Garrett Turbo T3/T04e 50Trim with stage 3 turbine.

Are you still doing chips?

Recieved and fitted the TLAO chips yesterday evening.

Ford Sierra 3dr
Pretty basic spec B230FK HPT M90, 3" AFM with cone filter, 13C 2.5" exhaust no cat.

Feels like a different car. Throttle response and overall driveability has improved dramatically, and the the way it squats and bounces down the road at 14psi is truly hilarious & addictive. Highly, highly recommended

Just stepped up to a ported, big valved 531, still on Mike's chips. Weekend shens had me putting the hurt on a Polestar V60 and a K-Pax S60GT6 up in the hills and twisties), even with an injector failing halfway thru the run. Definitely wouldn't have been able to do that without having one of his tune's.

Default Wastegate as exhaust cut out?

Evening all. As an alternative to a 3" system, has anyone used an external waste gate, in the down pipe or on a short extension to open as a cut out, under boost to negate the back pressure of a stock system yet keep quiet exhaust around town?
Seems a simple solution to spool my turbo up quicker, but will it allow enough pressure drop?

What kind of injectors is everyone running with the fuel chips? I have deka60lb injectors in my car now would I have to change those to run a fuel chip?
