Default NS DID performance enhancement

so i'm looking at enhancing the performance of my '08 DID and came across a few options. (spider, chip-it, diesel-performance, speed-buster etc). The two top performers AFAIK are speed buster and Chip-It. How do you guys compare/rate the Speed-Buster and the Chip-It ?

Speed buster : (from this thread) 156kW, 599EUR
Chip-It : (from this thread) 127kW at rear wheel, approx 170kW at flywheel, 799AUD

pls comment/compare...

What other bolt-on performance enhancement options are available ? Water-to-Air Intercooler (charge cooler) ? Does anybody do a Pajero Kit for this ?

cheers

First thing I did was to put a larger exhaust system on, more power and torque,
lets the engine breath better

Vicks I think it is hard to compare the 2 posts you have highlighted.

The reasons are
1. Is an Australian spec car with Australian spec fuel (Poor).
2. Is an Different spec car with different quality fuel better or worse.

Other than the thread you mentioned I have never seen or heard of the Speedbuster chip.

Any chip you purchase will give you an increase in power. How much? you will not know until it is on your car and on the dyno.

You will not get any bigger value for money in regards to a power increase than an aftermarket chip.

When I first put my spider chip on I too spoke like Double cheese on the speedbuster thread. The power increase was instantaneous and very noticeable.

As you know i now have the Chip-it chip and am very impressed with the tunability now and in the future.
Keep researching and good luck.

thanks for your clear and no-bullshit answers. I really appreciate your inputs and positive guidance.

I think i'll go with the Chip-It solution. guess its time to ring them (several posts, PM and email have had no response from Robert) and talk.

thanks
Vicks

Dont suppose you noticed Vicks is in Saudia Arabia! Might be just a bit more difficult for him to ring them himself than 2 x one legged blokes answering an email. Its great that their business is busy, but to keep growing their business they need to concentrate on both sales and customer service.

yeah, living in the desert doesn't help much (wrt time zones), but i'm going to give them a call today. Working in Sales/Customer support myself, albeit on a much larger scale, i know how much of a difference a simple one line email reply saying "we are looking into this and will get back to you ASAP" makes. Still i understand Roberts side of the issue too and am not going to demand that he reply to my emails. I'll call them no probs.

thanks guys.
