Feedback From Our Volvo Penta D3 Customers

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.
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!

What others are saying...

“May I congratulate you on this diesel tuning product as it has made a noticeable difference to my Land Rover Discovery. I have tried other diesel tuning boxes for my previous vehicles (Kia Sorento, Peugeot 206 and Vauxhall Vectra)... and they all produced slight engine stuttering under certain load conditions. The CHIP Express system does not show any evidence of this and is equal to the likes of an ECU remap (which I have also had done before) for smoothness and noticeable power gains. This would be the only diesel tuning product I would recommend.”

“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!”

“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.”

“A friend recommended one of your "gadgets" a year ago and being not-very-techno (but Scottish and keen to save money!) I bought one. The gizmo has TRANSFORMED the performance of my Land Rover Freelander 2 TD4 AND improved the fuel economy by a genuine 15%; so much so that I have bought another one for our Freelander 2 SD4 which is now a REAL Q-car! (And of course saves fuel...) I have never written a review before (though strangely I do read them and take notice of them, whilst half-believing that they are written by the owner's chums!) so to have made me pick up pen & paper so to speak - I MUST be delighted! Thanks for making technology so simple and so successful!”

“I must say l'm delighted with the improvement from your chip, its on the standard settings and the difference in the car is amazing!!! I have a smile on my face every time I get in the car, and there is about 5-7mpg improvement. With the mileage l do, l can see myself getting my money back in no time at all. So if your a doubter like me, don't be because its one of the best things l've ever bought!!!”

“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.”
