If you had said this about 3 days ago, I could have given you the 20 page write up or whatever. I asked for it like a month ago, and it finally showed up in my email.

They look pretty good, but expensive.

It sounded great, right up until they were giving me the same power gains from a 92 and 93 325. They showed a dyno graph that was for a 93 and didn't have anything about the 92. I was tempted to possibly get one later, but seeing the same supposed gains for the 92 and 93s really made me not want it.

luckely for you I know a little about these chips, They are petty much the only one you can get in New Zealand and lots of people have them and love them, now be carful because there ae three differant types, they start at bronze and go to gold, shit I have just looked at the site for the first time in years, you can get a gold and get 10kw of extra power but holy fu*k it cost's $900 US last year when I was goin to get one they were $900 NZ thats about half the price, however performance cost's I guess! hope that helps you make your desician?
If money doesn't bother you I would go for it because they are a good chip!!
