Post by Giladbethalevi » 15 May 2014 14:07

Was diving up hill a few week ago and the car was struggling I had to keep playing with the gears to get it to go as large 18 wheelers where taking me over miss my 4.8 that had real power
Any advice will help before I lay out the money is it worth it? I am looking for performance don't care about fuel eficency

What you describe is a problem that needs to be fixed.

A broken system cannot be "modified right". :mytwocents:

Hello
Ek stem met die ander. Voor jy n chip van enige maak koop. Toets eers of die kar reg perform.
n Regte chip maak wel n verskil maar dit help nog altyd nie op n kar met n fout nie.
Bv. n 100kw kar kan 110 kw maak met n chip. maar as jou 100kw kar begin op 90 kw, maak n chip hom miskien 100kw. Dit beteken dan niks.

Hello
I agree with the others. Before a chip making any purchase. First test if the car performs right.
A real chip does make a difference but it still does not help on a car with a fault.
Eg. a 100kW car can make 110 hp with a chip. but if your car starts to 100kW 90 kw, making him perhaps a chip 100kW. This means nothing.

Hi Gil,

Did you chip yet? Or did you find an alternative solution. Mine is also pap. Aspesialy in 4th and 5th gear. It doesn't pull at all. I'M also looking in to the chip. The chances of something wrong on my Trol is slim as it is stil brand new. Only thing that makes sence is the turbo boost control that is described else where on the forum.

Please let me know?
Being alive is a Blessing!!

Regards,
Joshua

Is it possible to install a racechip on a 4.2d patrol ?
What other "performance boosting" options do we have?
