flywheel droog,same as allways.i paid 350 yeah.like i said,it's not just give me abit of power,fuel economy has gone up,it drives alot better lower down the rev range.so likei said,a good buy.im gettin around 50-60 miles more 2 a tank.so it'll a paid fer itself in a few months time.....also if it was done 2 a stock 105 u would c 10bhp+

1 thing that has puzzled me though....my torque hasnt gone up from 98 ft-lb the last 3 runs ive done.it's allways read at 98 ft-lb........the torque bar on the graph is allways different,it now comes in much smoother n even....if u get what i mean......pitty i aint got a scanner then i could post um up....

thats not alot more bhp!
why just 7bhp? with other chip you can have 15bhp more!!!!
Actually about 7bhp is right. Those claiming more live in dreamlands.

Should be quite a nice change in driveability you are seeing now.

chiptuninguk told me that they have tested on the rolling road a chip for the ZR 160 and thats brings 15bhp!
Very Very different to chipping a 105bhp 1.4 though.

And they probably are taking a stock car against one with the exhaust and induction kit as well.

I know of two ZR160's done by them and both got 8bhp against stock filters and exhausts.

why they told me that the chip give me 15bhp when this isnt true??
i guess they "estimated it" as all engines are diff, prob max you would see. but 15bhp is pretty big for an allready modded car.

To sell them to those that don't know better and are never likely to put it on a rolling road to prove them wrong.

they could achieve an increace of 15bhp. just add about 50kg on the bonnet on the first one :D
