There's chipping & there's remapping, two different things for older & newer models. I think from memory 2003 onwards the ECU can be remapped (Flash re-programmable) which would be worth looking at. Bell Auto Services, Autologic, TD5 Alive to name but a few. A lot of local non-Land Rover independents do Autologic (Some in our club)

Performance HQ in Broughty Ferry (formerly Dastek) did my TD5 and did a fine job of it.

thats the 90 all sorted its got around 180bhp and well over 400nm of torque and it goes like **** of a shovel,low down grunt,top end,even bouncing of the rev limiter,its got it all,i cant speak highly enough of gary at td5 alive,he is a busy man but he will always find time for you on the phone,if anybody is thinking about using gary mention your in the buchan of roaders because theres a 10% discount to be had,he had not heard of the club so i soon put him right,give him a bell you wont regret it ! Very Happy
