Arrow Review - DP Chip Gen 3 3.2DID



Hi all most will know I've had a D'tronic chip in my Paj for years & was happy with its performance. However due to adding the 3" system I noticed I was blowing a little extra diesel out the back.. On top of that Safari who produced the D'tronic no longer do so & as Creighton's sell the DP Chip & I have recommended them to a few mates who purchased them of Jenene.
Talking about what they think of them, all report they are wrapped. So doing a little research namely speaking to Jenene re feedback from their customers re reliability, backup & ease of use as in fitting & playing with the settings, (well let’s be honest they say plug & Play), & the fact DP Chip will factory set them up for the 3" exhaust got me thinking about updating. Well a good mate who has a Paj mainly used to tow his van with standard exhaust was more than interested in buying my old chip which as I said is 100% fine with the standard exhaust which he has no intentions of changing so Job done!

Now this will be a long term review, so it will not be rushed & at present both my wife's parents are unwell which is taking priority!

1st impressions are all good no more smoke out the back! Very smooth at idle & very responsive with no sign of turbo lag economy seems a little better but I'll wait a while longer as I haven't had the chance to use Off Road, towing or trips.

Will edit & move to Review when I can..

Oh & my wife even noticed it was smoother & more responsive too

Gus.

Just for you Pickle this will be a no BS review, I'll even go as far as saying now the only figures quoted will be as DP Claim! Why? because we all know that it depends on the operator of Dyno's, how many runs ..

What this will be all about is how it performs out on & off the road, towing the 2 ton off road van & economy I also have the benefit of replacing the old D'tronic chip to compare it with.

arpencrous Mine is pre common rail but will give you an idea.. The DP Chip for yours is even more user friendly, (as in plug & play).

Im very happy with my DP chip, which has been installed for about a week or so aswell. Would love to get it dyno tuned, just to be confident i have the best tune, but i agree it all but eliminated the turbo lag characteristic of this engine.

I also have a 3" exhaust and found it reduced the smoke but increased the diesel smell at idle, which i can live with.

One thing i have noted, is that after having the chip in for a few days the engine ECU adjusts to the new tune and you can crank the tune up a little further without getting the same lumpy idle and sticky revs that you would have got on the same setting a few days prior.

It will be good to read a comprehensive review from someone with experience of 2 different chips on the 1 engine! Following with interest!
