Chiptuning to improve performance

Recommended Posts

I recently joined the club with a '86 UK 928 S2. Even with 300hp the heft of the car still makes it rather sluggish. I am looking at an option from DTE chiptuning to upgrade the performance and am surprised they still service cars this age. All in all $1200 would get me roughly 20hp and 30lb torque on the original engine. Then, the next surprise came on eBay when I chanced upon chips selling for less than $50 claiming to do the same.

Has any good folks here have any experience with chiptuning and is the end result worth it? (I am sure even with the $50 chip I would still have to sink another $300 or so for installation)

Cheers,

John

John Speake (a fellow Brit) has designed a device to tune the 928. He also has proven chips that will net the same if not more power and torque than what you are stating for just over 100 dollars US. Look him up. No affiliation.
