Ryan from Pearl City, Hawaii with a Volvo Penta D3 190 said:My boat is a Grady White Gulfstream 205 (with twin D3 engines). With your chip’s and Stainless F7 propellers on I was able to reach 3800rpm at wide open throttle. My goal is to run my F8 props and hopefully reach 4000rpm. But as it sits now, the biggest and most impressive gain since fitting the chips was in full range acceleration. From idle and pushing water, to powered up and jumping up on plane was phenomenal. I started to apply power from just off idle (about 6 kts) right at the harbour mouth and by the time I cleared the wall and was out of the no wake zone, the boat had already jumped up on plane (without the stern drive tucked under) and was nearing 15 kts. This is within a distance of maybe 60 feet! Once up on plane the engine took off running and ran up to my half throttle setting instantly, I trimmed it out a bit and floored it, the engine rocketed up to 3600rpm then with trim and a little time it worked its way up to 3800rpm. I estimate about 37.5 knots. This is with a boat weight of roughly 4500lbs plus three adult men on board, fully rigged for open water fishing, and nearly 250lbs of ice on board! The best part is that at my normal “hunting” trolling speed of 8 knots or so, my consumption dropped nearly .5 gallons per hour, and down at the Tuna speed of 5.5 – 6 knots I was only burning .75 gph. And to top off the fun, we landed a 20lb Ono (Wahoo) without even knowing we had a strike! I just happened to look back and see the out rigger knocked down and the rod bent just a hair. Who knows how long we had been dragging him! Anyway, thanks again for your help, I love the chip, and can’t wait to turn the power up! I use the boat for wake boarding as well, so this will be a great improvement for pulling the person being towed up!
Richard with a Volvo Penta D3 190 said:We have fitted one of your systems on Friday to a D3 190. We went on sea trials with the owner and (VODIA) Volvo diagnostics installed. No problems and noticed a much smoother acceleration. Also the engine ran much sweeter and got to its top speed quicker.
Antonio from Caribbean Waters with a Volvo Penta D6 435 Marine said:We installed the chip on our Tiara Sovran 43 boat with twin 2011 D6-435 engines. Although mechanically perfect with a clean hull the boat was not planning in the Caribbean waters, maybe because the warmer water is less dense? Either way with the chips the boat now planes very quickly, top speed has risen by 2-3 knots and fuel consumption has fallen when cruising at 27 knots / 3100rpm by one gallon/hr per engine.
Bill from St Peter, Jersey with a Volvo Penta D6 370 Marine (Twin Engine) said:I had the engineers fit the chips. Revs are up from 3250 to 3500 and top speed from 42 to 44 knots. Engines are running smoothly. Thanks again.
“Many thanks for your fantastic service! Unit ordered Sunday, delivered Tuesday am!! Unit now fitted and, as promised, the car is transformed. Winding country lanes tackled quite happily in fifth gear. Cruising on much smaller throttle openings and immediate response on acceleration. The car behaves as a mini car should behave. I had some initial doubts about spending quite a large amount of money on this item but it is worth every penny and would not hesitate to advise anyone to do similar.”

“I was a sceptic at first, then after reading the experiences others had been through I decided to give it a go. I bought a new 1.7 CRDI Sportage, not the 2ltr purely for better fuel figures. Whilst this engine pulls very well in standard form, and was returning 44-45mpg even during the first 500 miles I had to go down the CHIP Express route. Well, there is absolutely no point in forking out the extra 2 grand for the 2 litre model when you can get the 1.7 and spend much less to get 2 litre power figures. Excuse the cliché’s, but this car is transformed and by a big margin too. From what I can remember about my 2 litre test drive, my 1.7 now pulls better than the 2 litre version. The low-down grunt is remarkable and pulls like the proverbial train. Fitting took minutes and was effortless, the box was kept on factory settings, I feel there is no need to mess with it. Needless to say I am now a very happy boy and would without question take this route again. I would recommend this to any diesel Sportage owner. Many, many thanks for a remarkable product and a customer service that is rare in this country!”

“Be assured, this is NO gimmick. Arrived yesterday (less then 24 hours after the order was placed) and fitted today. The fitting was easy especially with the photos and instructions sent with the chip. The first thing I noticed was the responsiveness of the engine from a standing start, no more lag. I then went on a 30 minute drive both motorway and sideroads and my average fuel consumption went UP from 33.3mpg to 38.7mpg. My motorway speed varied from 60 to 85mph and the sideroads from zero to 40mph. I am so pleased with the whole result. This is worth every single penny paid. Thank you!”

“As do many, I took the 'if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is' approach to performance chips. But CHIP Express were recommended by an impeccable source who had had experience with their product on my model of car - a Citroën C6 with the 2.7 HDi twin turbo diesel. Following a first rate response to a query, the product has delivered in spades. Ten days and more than 1000 miles of mixed town, country, low and high speed driving later I am certainly getting more than 10% more from a gallon, and probably 15%, and the performance is markedly better. Low speed response is immediate and has eradicated what I took to be baked-in lag in a big automatic turbo diesel, and mid-range acceleration is silky smooth, including up inclines. A very good car has been turned into the excellent car I had hoped for all along.”

“A good product and a good service deserves recognition: I fitted a CHIP Express unit to my Insignia. What an amazing bit of kit! My fuel economy and performance went way up and with the mileage I do was a Godsend! On a run to Aberdeen from Hull I returned an average of 62 MPG and I drive quite energetically! I've just taken up the trade in offer and saved a few quid on a new system. The Vauxhall has now gone with 125,000 trouble free miles and I have changed car to a Volvo S60 D3. I'm looking forward to fitting the Chip Express unit and reaping the rewards, thanks guys!”

“Your customer service, speed at which you deal with questions and chip (most importantly) are second to none. This is the 3rd variation of the chip that I have run, not only do I see the fuel savings made each and every time I fill up but I also feel the changes in the increased performance too. Far too often people only feel the need to leave negative feedback on a product, it's very rare that people take the time to leave positive comments however on this occasion I feel compelled to do so. A brilliant product and one that I highly recommend should you want to make the most of your cars potential performance and make a fuel saving to add into the bargain. What's not to like?! It's been a pleasure dealing with the team at Chip Express, I just wish everyone I dealt with in life was this professional! Thank you.”
