Power chip comments...

Anyone powerchip here? For the extra few HP, will you notice it in your seat? Dubious.

RE: Power chip comments...

For $700-900 on my 02 clk430 it was well worth it for me. A noticable kick over stock. I like the way the car sounds throatier at startup and how the car hisses like a snake when you hit the gas. I also enjoy the fact that the rev limiter is bypassed and the software is undetectable at the dealer and will re-write itself in the ecu if erased temporarely. I have cheap jet chips on my ford super duties and they are crap compared to powerchip. The guy i worked with is Joel Ayson at powerchip out of California. The stated 25hp gain is pure BS, more realistic at 10-15 hp on dyno. not bad for the money. I also noticed a slight increase in fuel economy...(.5 to 1mpg). go for it! Also, MB dealers around the country sell this software as aftermarket goods so dont feel bad/worried about warranties as some dealers actually will push this prouduct.[:0]
