  • Turner/Conforti vs iigomotiv vs GIAC/DSR chips for stock car?

    Which one is the best? Everyone says theirs is so who has what and/or who has used/dynoed more than one in the same car and can share what they found?

    Stock 2.3L car with no mods.

    Thanks,

    I love my iigomotive chip. I can't comment on the others, but I had a Dinan chip in the car from when I bought it, I tried the iigomotiv chip and the difference is night and day. I have used a conforti chip in my car before and the difference was negligable from the Dinan chip. We had two ECU's and switched them back and forth a number of times. I could barely tell the difference between the two. iigomotiv definitely is a significant improvement

      I have heard numerous people say the iigo is better than Turners. Enging runs and idles smoother and makes more power. Also with highly tuned, cammed engines, the iigo stops pinging, which is a problem with Turners. I have not heard anything about GIAC/DSR.
      Disclaimer: I do not have personal experience with any of these chips. I'm waiting until I get my cams installed to get the iigo chip for schrick cams!

        hey, my buddy and i have exact same stock car/ same mileage, but he has a iigomotiv chip, and i have the conforti chip. our driving experince is about the same so we did about 5 or so straight line races( all from rolling start) just to see how the chip compared. every time, off the jump i would pull about a car length ahead of him ( i have conforti chip) and then once we were into 4th gear, he would slowly pull on me and end up about 1 car length ahead of me at about 125mph. in my opinion, theres no significant difference between the chips. fyi,my car runs great on conforti chip.

          Seth,

          To make the comparison more scientific, you should swap DME's and repeat your tests.

            I've got the iigo chip and used to have the dinan. the iigo was a lot better than my dinan chip, but it could have been an earlier version dinan chip.

            the iigo feels like it's better, but honestly i dont think there can be THAT much of a difference between them. there's only so much you can tune the engine (for a normal road car) and conforti has had a lot of exeperience tuning bmw's.

            so if you have a stock chip, i would recommend the iigo, but if you've already got an aftermarket chip, probably wouldnt be worth it to change.

              unless your aftermarket chip is a Dinan, then it's worth it

                  The most reasonable verdict is that the difference between conforti and Iigo would be minimal at best, but I still think the catchy name is reason enough to upgrade.

                  But, I suggest we all compliment our chips with performance decals, those with Dinan chips should use at least 3 performance enhancing stickers to recoup the 10 hp deficit.

                    On a related note, how tough is the chip to install? I am considering purchasing the iigomotiv chip very soon.

                      still don't think we've ever seen a Iigo RS chip dyno plot

                        Very easy to install. Takes about 20 minutes. Pull the DME, open, remove old chip and replace with new one. Close up DME and reinstall.

                          Thanks for the info.

                          And with no glove box in my car, the job should go even quicker. :p

                            Excuse the Hijack.

                            Has JC always burnt chips for Turner?
                            If not, When did this occur?

                              JC sold his chip business to Turner about 5? years ago.
