Has Anyone w/ a 325i gotten the turner chip?!

and if so is it worth the price for about 20 hp?! Im very curious about this. They claim on the web page that this chip will turn your 325i into a 330i. Seems fishy.

IMHO, the dyno doesn't look that great, the increase in HP and TQ is not consistent throughout the RPM ranges, it peaks right around 4500rpm

doesnt look too promising. numbers dont add up.

on the top of the chart it says stock HP=182.604 and Torque=169.122
and right underneath, with the software the numbers are HP=186.316 and Torque=178.226

and if you go on the site, it says the software gives you 219HP and 200Torque...

numbers are different, and doesnt a 325 come stock with 215HP and 200lb/ft Torque??

max gain (or max delta) doesn't necessarily mean it occurrs at the max hp or max tq.

They are saying that the maximum increase between pre and post chip tuning is 19 hp @ 4700rpm (keywords being MAX and @ certain rpm, not increase throughout the ranges), while tha max difference in tq between pre and post chip tuning is 15 @ 4500rpm.

and with any dynos, the measured HP and TQ is AT THE WHEELS, not at the crank.

I had one of those chips installed for my E36 and it felt like nothing was ever changed on the car!!! It was completely a waste of money but I gave it a try...
