Tired of reading about smoother ride haha, like the ECU has anything to do with it.

How did it effect your car, very interesting

Are the changes noticed?

Hi Andrew
Definitely Yes , Specially the Cold Shifting wich anoy'd me a lot , Power in the Low Revs is more and Kick down is verry Powerfull ( Neck Cracker, Lol )
Its just Perfect .Have you got one in yours ?
Ciao
This is what it supposed to do
- 10% to 15% more HP and Torque Ft/lb Never tested this Yet, but i guess its a Yes for @ least half off that-
Great acceleration at low RPM (1000-2000) Yes it has
- Sharpens the throttle response much better than stock. More punching power in 2000-3000 RPM range and up. Definetely YES
- Removes Top Speed Limiter/Governor Thats a yes as Well , have seen the Engine overrev
- Removes the Upshift Delay during drive on cold start Main Reason why i installed it,Perfect changing now
- Smooth Idle Yes True ,verry smooth Rattling , lol
I cannot fault any off these

If we lived closer together, I would ask you to make a ride in your car, to feel the difference compared to mine.

It is a too big and risky job (vulnerable electronics) for me to test it out myself.
Beside that I think the power of m y S500 is already huge, kickdown is awesome, and I have no upshift issue on a cold engine.
The only thing that would be nice, is to have less fuel consumption, and to see what the absolute topspeed is one time.

So yours dosnt have the Cold Upshifting Transmission delay, this was for heating the Engine and Transmission up Quicker for the 1st 2 minutes i thing it was or less , its verry anoying when you are a bit in a Rush ,you know what i mean ,Start the Car and go ,with this one when i 1st got it ,i was always scared to get going when it was cold waiting for it to shift ,now that i got rid off this Feature, i let the Car warm up before i actually drive it,LOL, go figure that out .
Installing the Chip is ,yeah looks complicated ,but when you actually get into it and start understanding & get familiar with this Part ,it gets pretty easy ,i can only suggest to wear a Headband for Sweat drops (lol) and dont Shake .
You Car beeing a later Model, if it dosnt have that Delay Shifting wont need this , there is no need for it ,for our Friend "MBs600v121998" it may well be a different Story ,he wants to beat the Ferrari's and Lambos ,Porsche's he can beat already as is ,lol.
Ciao
Almost forgot ,if you ever come too Sydney ,you are most Welcome to come for a Ride ,but Please No Neck Supports ,i have all the Helmets too ,Lol.
