I was just curious to see if anyone has had the DEV5 kit put into their car. I was just reading up on the two variations of the DEV5 kit, and saw the power output of the DEV5 (170rwkw) and the DEV5 with an aftermarket computer (175rwkw) - can't remember its kit number.
From memory, the price difference was around $800 more for the one with the computer.
Can anyone justify the extra 5-odd kilowatt gain for the extra $800??
Are there any benifits of having the more expensive one?

I have a dev5a cam in my car, Im just waiting for the head work, which should hopefully be finished by the end of august. so far it goes real nice but it is a bit sluggish off the line, so diff gears have hopefully fixed that.
I have the DEV5 kit and it is nothing short of excellent.
Smooth power delivery, easy starts, good fuel economy.
Power below 2000rpm is basically like a standard engine - between 2000rpm and 4000rpm it is quite a bit stronger with a nice urgency - and above 4500 it surges like a warmed over big capacity V8 all the way to it's 5800rpm redline.
I don't know how much difference there is with the DEV5A kit, but I doubt you'd be missing much.
From what I've read, the DEV5A idles quite rough, where as my DEV5 idles like a pussy cat. Close to standard, with a slight lope.
4L I6, naturally aspirated producing 173.5rwkw.

What's that?..... Did I hear you say TQE power?
