Re: Cheapest ECU upgrade yet! (R_Rated)

I've heard of them through VW tuning.<br>Been around a while. <br>Here is their Austrian home site<br><A HREF="http://www.tuning-chip.at/kontaktset.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tuning-chip.at/kontaktset.htm</A><p>Just cause they aren't one of the names you've heard a thousand times here, doen't mean they don't have same effective programming. <br>And they don't have a history.<p>"IN"motion Just Like "UP"solute programs.<br><A HREF="http://www.upsolute.com/eng/index.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.upsolute.com/eng/index.html</A> <p><br>They've been around for a loooong time, formerly named Chiptronics, they have been programming ECU's, ...well since there were ECU's.<p>Thier biggest problem is 1. They don't keep up website, ..for instance they only have about <B>1/4 of the cars</B> they have files for listed in database. <br><A HREF="http://www.upsolute.com/eng/index.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.upsolute.com/eng/index.html</A><p>and 2. Individual tuners/Distributors are often specialists with what they see around them most and often can't talk much of other cars/motors out there.<p>I talked with a European tuner over phone whom I told right away I was trying to get a tune for an R and yet I had to go through about three different diesel motors that he thought were in my car. I guess he tunes a helluva lot of Volvo diesels. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> (Or it was <I>"just lost in translation</I>.")<br>Once he figured out I really did have an R and it was not diesel, it was just a matter of making an appointment to go in have file done.<p>Not only are there files for R's, there are big turbo upgrades available!!<p>Yeah, for the price difference, I'd be willing to give INmotion a look.<p>Matter of fact, here's a look at their link to R tune. (500Euro)<br>Click on chiptuning and then go through directory.<br><A HREF="http://www.tuning-chip.at/cgi-bin/inmotion-shop/iboshop.cgi?index" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tuning-chip.at/cgi-...index</A><p><br>That's compared with 400 Euro for UPsolute.<p>You know, "IN" motion and "UP"solute are actually not very far apart in Austria. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Check out the similarity of vehicles in databses between the two.<p>-

Re: Cheapest ECU upgrade yet! (Dzljet)

I had an UPsolute upgrade in my 2000 Passat V6 5M. Never a problem.<br>No dramatic gains like the turbos would have: small advance on the throttle and gas pedal. I had this doen with the install of a lightened flywheel. Overall felt good.<br>I read often on B5.com that they were always there to help. Great support.<br>SJ

Re: (Elmoworld)

You might but at what cost, the "chip" prevents the "ECM" from using its safety feature which could yield catastrophic results.
