V max evo chips

so how many people are running their chips?

ppl rave on about the eds phase chips, the vmax ones which seem to be better in theory no one is saying much about them?

wallace has been selling them for a year, so some one must have them??

anyone??

Im running an Evo2 set, and it does exactly what it says on the tin :D - raises the overboost and steady boost levels, though I've not tried the increased rev limit ( 7250 )

Mine is running the EVO 2 kit to - was going to have EDS phase 3.5 but after the problems with Regal i have decided to go for the VMAX EVO 5 instead.

I have never had any problems with my current VMAX very impressed indeed and the VMAX stuff is supposed to have better safety cut.

got vmax chips and sent them back! 400 quid for 2 chips :confused:
for 399quid from regal i got eds 3+ chips, new plugs BRAND NEW FPR(not a second hand squashed one) and the mod for the actuator so you dont have to preload the **** out of it! car now puts out a proven 300 bhp even with a small charge cooler. if i had a big fmic it would probably be more! and the best part about it is i can put it back to standard power at the flick of a switch.

Id be amazed if there was any significant difference between EDS and VMAX, they are both just trying to make the best of what hardware is available.
Personally i think its worth the extra money for decent programmable management though.

lmao lmao lmao lmao lmao

what a load of [email protected] from James

i have 2 x calibra turbos
i have the eds phase 2 (very quick)
and then had the eds phase 3 (even quicker)
but i sold the eds phase 3 chips because i wasnt happy with the power delivery.
and i went on to buy a set of VMAX evo5 chips from wallace
and believe me when i tell you that it now drives with the responsiveness of a motorbike and its the only kit that makes full proper use of my turbo
Its easy for me to say its fast but its not so easy to assure you that its a beast and you to believe it.
I have run this kit since it came out and the engine is soooo strong pulling its literally unbelieveable.
it makes the phase 2 calibra ive got feel like a 1.3 litre nova (good for sunday sprints)
read into it what you will
i use vmax evo 5 and i been driving "c20 let's" for 11 years
but the one i have now is the fastest "let2 ive ever driven
long live Vmax

OK

Now you explain me how the hell do i do a "decent programmable management" in PORTUGAL??????
Learn quick :D lmao

I would still like to see some rolling road figs for these kits. There seems such a paucity of information with respect to the V-max stuff. Glad you all seem pleased with it any how :)
