Re: TAP 20vt chip

Having run (back to back) Hoppen's "280 HP" setup and TAP's "+80HP" (i.e.
307 HP?) setups on S-cars (whose engines are pretty close to yours), TAP
would seem to be _really_ optimistic in their claims. I wouldn't say the
TAP setup is _less_ powerful (although it does feel less smooth), but it
certainly doesn't feel any better. Anyway, if it takes an RS2 turbo,
manifold and chip to get >300 from MTM/Hoppen, how would TAP do it with
just a chip...

...and for the record, mine was the TAP setup, worse luck...
