Sounds about right that £300 for 4 bhp. It isnt just about total power though, it is also about the delivery of that power and the torque. That increase is across the range and will make a very noticeable difference. As for all the claims about 20 30 HP increases from a chip/filter/resistor, this is all heresay. If you watch REVVS on TV (it is on at the moment and is a repeat from last year) they are modifying a 105. They spend £1K on a head modification and manifiold to get 10Hp at the wheels increase. Again this is across the range and increases the drivability, but take other claims with a pinch of salt. There is a little article I came across and posted on here about BHP...Bar Horse Power ;)

its a control valve it pushes more petrol to your engine which in theory makes your car faster and their 97 quid my mate has one on his 400 and he said his goes faster and takes the flat spots away in your gear change
