Powerchip for XR6T 300kw!

I thought you turbo buys might find this interesting.

Visit http://www.powerchipgroup.com

BA XR6T plug in chip costs $1490 AUS installed.

Power increases from 240kW to 300Kw and torque from 450Nm
to 562Nm.

Note car must run on 98oct (optimax ect) to achieve this.

For us N/A XR6ers, our chip is still under design.

oh yeah forgot, the service techs also cant tell that the chip has been installed so it wont affect warranty - (according to the website anyway!) Also it dosnt affect standard tuning of the car.

Doesn't that tell you something?

What do you think that insurance assessors look for when a claim goes in?

Hmmm.... I reckon that thing would be almost unbeatable till something went bang.

who cares? If something went bang then simply spend the bucks you would have required to get an extra 70kw in to a stronger box.

While it would be very tempting to up the power of your new car, personally i wouldnt jump into it yet.

Obviously these guys know what they are doing, but on the other hand havent done nowhere near as much testing on the road as what Ford have...240kw with that running gear is released that way for a reason

I would probably wait for a few people have got one then sat back and waited for problems (if any at all) arose

Gee, those articles are a bit alarming don't you think? If they donít have their own chassis dyno, how to they obtain testing consistency? Hey, I'm not a mechanical engineer and it sounds like they arenít either, but......

Someone please enlighten me or correct me if I'm tracking down the wrong road here. Believe me I would love to have a 300kw XR6T.
