You know the old expression "If it's too good to be true, it must be". Well I came across this co., SLR Motorsports, who sells an Ultra Performance Chip for our beloved '04-'06 Rs for $69.99. You read right. See for yourself <A HREF="http://slrmotorsports.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=818" TARGET="_blank">http://slrmotorsports.com/shop...p=818</A> Has anyone ever heard of these folks? Bought the chip? I did a detailed search on this site and came up with Zilch. Wait to hear from you. And please, I am not endorsing this, suggesting or ..... Just looking to hear from knowledgable tech. people.

Rip off. I'm positive it's a fancy box housing a .05 cent resistor that tricks your IAT into thinking it's cooler outside than it is.<p>No way in hell it does anything even close to what they claim.

Don't get me wrong there is so much experience on this forum that I figured someone would know the skinny on this thing.

"if you want me to take a crap in a box and mark it guaranteed I will. I've got spare time. But in the meantime for your company's sake, for your daughter's sake, you might want to think about buying a quality part from me."

Re: (Bender)

I noticed this in their FAQ after I selected the V70R from the list.<p>Q: My vehicle is Turbo/Supercharged will the module work?<br>A: No, we build our chip strictly for engines not equipped with a turbo or supercharger. We can build custom chip for specific turbo/supercharged vehicles, please contact us for more info. Our custom chip for Turbo/Supercharged vehicles are built for specific timing, boost and other modifications.<p>So it seems that they list the normal chip working with the V70R (you can order it) and overlooked the fact that the car has one of those pesky turbos that require some advanced gadgetry and a custom chip...
