I considered and studied a lot of Chips before I went ahead with my purchase for the Rodeo.

I just could not bring myself to part with $1495 for the DP Chip.

During the search I cam across this Chip Chip Express

120KW to 138KW on Factory recommended setting.

It's write up was very similar to the DP Chip with a return guarantee. I was able to pick it up for $395 Pounds with a 30 Pound express delivery. (Currently $688.38 delivered)

From Order to placement in the car was 10 days.

Very easy to fit once you find the sensor (easy to see from under the wheel arch)

Have not given the car a long run so will report back on the performance. But very noticeable was the low down torque. I was able to take off with a full load on a steep incline I was never able to do before without riding the clutch. Anyone who owns a rodeo will know that this is an issue. There is a noticeable difference with acceleration up a hill as well.

So far so good will keep you posted

Cheers Tony

I did not look where it was made, most likely all these are put together in China :-)

First long drive today, have not filled up yet,

Performance is very noticable. There is definitly a lot more touqe and acceleration. I was able to stay in top gear on hills I had to change down on before and cruised up steeper hills that used to be a bit of an effort.

Do not think fuel will be any better at this time will see when I fill up.

Will look when I get home to see if there is some manufacture details

Warren - I am sold at this time - Very noticable extra perfomance on Hill climbs,

Also sits at speed limit in the hills without effort. I am fully loaded with the tray back camper at this time.

Interestingly one of the hill climbs I di here with a full load usually puts the engine temp up as well. Today did it imn the same gear as usual with a lot more ease and not temp rise.

So should be as good as they say it is. Will keep posting on results

Done another 700k and can confirm that Torque and Performance are definitely improved.

I am able to hold top gear on hill climbs where I previously could not (Fully Loaded)

Acceleration is smooth & positive with top RPM reached with ease.

Cruising at the speed limit (110k) was effortless having to constantly back off as the rodeo just wanted to keep on going.

So far Fuel consumption was only 1ltr per 100k better then average. This will most likely be better after I stop enjoying the extra horses :-) or put the wife in the car (Whistle).

But heck 1ltr per 100k with extra grunt & torque....Well thumbs up from me and I recommend this product
