I have a Wilk chip, and have for a little over a year now. It makes the car very drivable. I wrote down my first impression the day I put it in. "It not so much adds power to the car as it presents it the way Porsche should have." I can leave a stop light with the air conditioning on with it. $100.00 is a great price.

oh wow, is there any confirmation on the N/A chip? when you go to "order" there are no "fuel" options ... have to e-mail or something?

There are a few testimonials from actual users....look on the left side.

From reading up...Wilks chips are supposed to be great.

yeah I found that, but for what gas are these chips? 89? 91? 93? 87?

and I guess people in the USA are getting the US version of the chip? and then, where does it go?

It is much better off the line. It takes out the low points on your power curve for a smooth acceleration curve. It does not raise the curve so much as it reshapes it.

I found this online. My "calibrated hiney dyno" agrees.

Installed mine today....definitely makes a difference. It literally jumps to 3500 off the line. Much more "drivable" power band.....feels more responsive w/ some actual torque. It pushes you back in your seat..mainly because its getting to the HP immediately. It revs to 6500 way faster... For a $100...it was well worth it. Idles better also..

FYI...I have owned my car for 3 years, so there is no placebo effect here. I'm very, very happy with the results.
