Back on topic...you will find mods under a few hundred bucks pretty much will yield little or no improvement in HP, torque, etc. I bought a Power Chip (did not pay $1000 bux or whatever they advertised) but paid I think $400. Got rid of Dinan software and went with Power Chips. Why? Because P/C offered a solution to my low air flow from new SAP and valve likely caused by carbon build-up. I bought P/C software just to get European software for SAP system. Got absolutely no driveability improvement except higher RPM limit, speed limit removed, car remains in DSP mode "off" if that is what you chose on last drive, etc. If I was after HP, I would have been highly disappointed. After spending $600+ on all new SAP parts, and getting air flow error, P/C software took care of error allowing a "pass" on Indiana emmission test. Sorry to ramble..
This is good information. Had I known I wouldn't have bought a new SAP and valve.
So let me verify it's functions again with you to be cleared.

1/ It bypasses SAP check?
2/ It deletes top speed limit?
3/ It turns OFF DSP traction control???

Please reply, I kind of liking this PC mod.
