Simon from CCCTech came and "UPSoluted" my Golf PD150 least tuesday. Boy oh boy what a difference!! The performance now is what the americans would probably call "awesome"!! The power just keeps on coming all the way up the rev range, the thing pulls like a train in any gear. The journey to work is now a fun event, rather than the depressing necessity it used to be. I now find myself grinning like a fool when i'm out in my car, waiting for a reason to pour on the power and show some BMW driver what acceleration really is.

Simon also let me watch the whole process and answered all my questions adout the UPSolute chip both honestly and intelligently. Nice bloke. Cheers Simon!

Don't delay. Get It Done!!

Only got the UPSolute figures to go on at the moment, which are 182 bhp and 313 lb/ft of torque. Don't doubt them though as you can really feel the extra power. The wife said "why are you getting it done?". So I let her have a drive, not heard a peep since!

Interesting to see how a chip is replaced and reprogrammed aint it [8D]

It's certainly worth every penny. I wonder if the performance gains you get from the other chipping companies are worth the extra bucks?

Depends how much power you want...

Must be some reason why other companies charge more.

I do love my Upsolute mini torch though, that's the only thing I got from them!!

The only thing that puts me off is the member who only got 170bhp from his AGU engine. I'd be really annoyed with that. I'd be wanting about 190+ for sure.

I cant remember the member but he wasnt very happy and was going to speak to them about it. He never reposted as far as i know to say what the issue was.

Cheers for joining in and jogging my memory Marty. I'm wondering about getting mine done to enjoy my car a little more.

ved head dont let it put u off there is still a lot of difference so i think its down to the cowboys in plymouth to be fair i was warned about them by a member from st austell but i still went simon is a good guy and would not rip anyone off its the same remap for all the cars so the ones with the proof of 190+ is more like it.i was just so gutted at first i thought i would ask the questions now i feel more confident that its more than 170
