Jay, Thanks !

Interesting...I'm reading on page 4 that the Powerchip modifies the ignition timing on part and full power.
This means it is modifying the EZL with no mention of changing fuel delivery.
The Euro cars already have an adjustment plug to modify timing and other cars have a fixed resistor.
In the USA you can remove the fixed R16 resistor and pull about 6 degree advance.

What concerns me is how they arrive at the power increase.
The supplied charts are not from a dyno as they indicate stock published BHP.
After the Powerchip install they somehow estimated a 10% increase in power.


More believable with a baseline dyno to indicate RWP and then a run after the Powerchip install.

I can't see 10% by timing alone.
