Chip for 2.8td
Any members here have a 2.8TD with a chip?
Thinking of buying one with tax money but I want to be assured I'll feel the benefits. Read a lot of people saying different things about the different brands. At this stage, DPCHIP are looking the goods with many different settings, a 30 day money back guarantee and a 5year warranty.
So, anyone 2.8 owners with experience? Did you get a dyno and if so, what power did it make on which setting? (if applicable)

Yeah, I realise the issue is flogged to death on other forums but I'd like to try and get as much information gathered on this site as I find this one the best due to the personalities and the friendliness.
I have the 3" exhaust and the blocked EGR. I've read other opinions that say there is a vast improvement in day-to-day driving as the chip gets rid of the turbo lag that diesels suffer so much from. Of course, there's the "towing" aspect of it and the added torque must be great.
Last night I found a chart with the power gains for the patrols. I think it was on the DPChip site but I can't find it for the life of me. For the money I have to lay out for a chip, the power gains didn't really seem worth it.

Do you have a pyro & boost fitted so you can monitor whats going on & have you read the post Andy has in the DIY section on how to fine tune the EGR block off mod? If not this may be of some help to you.

What do these chips look like?
how can you tell if you have a standard chip or a mod chip?
