Ok, I bought the chip from Turnermotorsport.com and had no troubles with them at all. I ordered it online, got free 2nd day air shipping and an email confirmation within minutes. The next day I recieved an email with the tracking number.
It was not too hard to install and I have a DIY for the installation. So a search and I am sure you will find it. "DIY for Installing a chip" It also tells you how to find your ECU number so that you can order your chip. I needed that number and the production date(from inside the doorsill)
1) Acceleration - First off, there is not a huge difference in acceleration. Is it noticable, yes, but don't expect it to throw you in your seat or anything(it is not a turbo).
2) Redline - It does however change your redline from 6300 to 7000. This allows you to get to 60 faster as you can extend the time in 1st and 2nd slightly. I got to 60 without needing to shift to third. Most of your new power will come around 3000 rpm. It definately gives the car some more pep.
3) Topspeed - Also you are now not limited to 129 and can go whatever you want (that the car can handle) I have heard as much as 150+. Will I ever go that fast, no.
So overall is the chip worth the $250. I say yes.
I am going to be doing some more things to the car and think that this is a needed mod. Would I only do the chip......well maybe. I think that the chip with other things should pay off well, but by itself it really is up to the person.
If anyone has any other questions that are not answered here or in my DIY feel free to PM and ask me.
