not sure what this means?

But a chip will raise your limiter, governor, and boost your hp/trq some.

I do not know one off the top of my head that allows you to control or change the settings. You typically need a computer to do that sort of thing... and serious hardware to go with it.

A computer chip change would not be switchable. That is, there would be no switch that turns on and off the performance upgrade.

It raises your rev limiter, top speed governor, adds hp/trq, advances timing and remaps the AFR. That's what it is good for. If you want something adjustable, you'll need a stand alone system.

He asked what a good one was, not what it was good for.

I'd check out Turner Motorsport. I've had good experiences with them.

Turner Motorport, specializing in high performance parts & accessories for BMW and the New MINI at discount prices.

conforti was supposed to be making a setup where you could do the adjustments on your car yourself. I have no clue when it is going to be finished though, it's been a while..
