SLR Motorsports advertises for the 94-97 SL320 an “Ultimate Performance Chip” (for $70) that increases: HP by 50, Torq by 50, and MPH by 3-6. Anyone here have comment or reviews? ThanX!

I apologize for my initial, above posting. Googling SLR Performance brings up many comments from auto forums that are very negative. Sorry guys, I shoulda done 'due diligence first!

willyinnv please don't be offended by what I'm about to say but a 50 HP gain in a N/A engine with only a chip is very close to a miracle. Honestly you can expect 10 to 15 BHPs and that's an optimistic estimate trust me.
I'd believe that 50 BHPs increase only if the guy selling that had long hair, a long beard and could do miracles.
You know who I'm talking about don't you?

Cheers.

5-10% is about the max you will gain from ECU tuning on a N/A motor.

To gain 50hp from a 300hp motor, that would be almost 20%. That's totally unrealistic. The real gains, assuming that company actually knows what they're doing, will be about half that. That's just BLATANT false/misleading advertising.

And I wouldn't do business with a company that puts out such misleading claims anyway, and then when you get into the fact that their "performance chip" is really just some half-azzed rewiring to fool the a/f ratios, I REALLY wouldn't touch it.

If you want a tune, go with a custom tune. It's $1k, but you'll get your 5-10% and at least then you won't have to worry about whatever made-in-china widget that company is selling catching your car on fire or ruining your motor.
