Having just purchased a new BT 50 3.2L I am contemplating fitting a DP Chip. I would love to hear from anyone who has done this as to how it goes. I had a chip in a previous 3.0L BT 50 and it worked very well, so think I may do the same with the new one, but haven't spoken to anyone who has fitted one, so I am wondering!

I have had a chip and 3inch exhaust fitted and tuned by Roos Systems in Brisbane. I have had no problems, their service was good and the BT performs excellent.

Hi Toby, I have just posted a blog requesting information on chips for Ford/Mazda 3L motors when I saw yours re the 3.2L chips, I have been given so much information that I am about to go out on overload, Is it necessary to install the new exhaust as well as the chip?

Hi Putting Dave,
If I had my time over again I think I would put the exhaust on first and then see if I needed the chip. I had a 3" Titan exhaust on the 3L BT and the chip and exhaust worked very well together, but I felt that the exhaust was a major contributor. We pull a 21 ft van and that ute did it very well and we had no problems at all.
If you want any more info give me a call on 0407 734222 - happy to chat.

Why do you feel the need for the chip Toby ?
The 3.2's have heaps of power as it is . . .

Bear in mind, I believe the CR on these has a pressure relief valve that is set pretty low, so increasing fuel rail pressure via a chip might be limited.

My old pk 3.0tdi has plenty of power, but I chipped it with a European made chip a while ago, made little difference (only wanted to increase econ and reduce a little tubo lag), but conked out twice (once on streets, once on tracks), so had to remove it from fuel rail to get going again.

Permanently removed now.

I'll be doing some other things to take care of the little turbo lag it has here and there, and higher end torque.
Most likelyh when the time comes, a slightly larger exhaust, and probalby a large intercooler.

Have considered Diesel LPG system too, but still not sold on that.
Like the idea of larger range with the extra fuel i the system too.
