Steinbauer on my 2006 model, finally doing the exhaust next week. The chip along helped a bit but looking forward to the exhaust

Hi I got a full 3'' stainless taipan xp exhaust, ceramic dump pipe, and steinbauer chip with front mount PWR intercooler, goes pretty well, fuel isnt too bad either, keen to get it tweaked a bit as the chip is in factory setting currently. I cant comment on before and after as it was all done from new sorry

We had a few chips fitted to out Hilux when we had it, did 100,000k and no problems. Did plenty of long distance towing and remote traveling...... what we liked was the lazy drivability it gave and the extra power when needed.

We used a DP chip and a Rapid but found the DP chip to work the best...... seems chips that alter rail pressure offer more torque down low that we enjoyed and wanted; and chips that alter injector duration gave more top end.

Don't read into the marketing hype that some chip manufactures print regarding there chips are safer and better...... all of the plug and play chips do all the same thing but a different way..... they feed more fuel in and the safe guards are all the same.

The best chip is a custom tune that alters rail pressure, duration boost and maybe timing BUT they can be extremely costly to buy, install and set up plus there is a bigger chance of the engine going boom!

Two to three hours on a dyno doesn't make it reliable considering the manufactures spend 10's of thousands of hours under all conditions doing their tunes.

The plug and play type chips are the safest as they alter only one thing and leave all the rest up to the factory ECU to safeguard/control.
