Default Review of Vishnu Performance Unichip and Tuning.

Since im a local guy to shiv, i decided to go through him for engine management.

He spent some time yesterday installing the unichip, and we loaded up a map and went for a cruise.

Here are my mods:

1.ITG panel filter
2. BPM downpipe, midpipe, Apex N1 rear section
3.Vishnu up pipe
4. MBC
5. TEC VF22 turbo

With stock IC, injectors, and BOV running 91 octane.

I can not stress enough how much tuning helps, I mean we are running some conservative levels (15psi) with the way the unichip is setup, and the cars power and delivery feels well i guess you could say "tuned." The car feels alot snappier, very healthy throughout the whole powerband and response and pull is greatly improved.

With some more mods coming my way, i am happy that i went with the unichip, and i am also happy to have such a knowledgable local tuner available.

The install is very simple, and takes just 30 minutes or so.

I am very happy with the setup so far and look forward to running larger numbers as far as horsepower production, and i feel more than confident that the unichip will more than help me reach my goal "EFFICIENTLY".

i cant wait for my other goodies to get hear, so i can step up in the power world.

Cant beat shiv and vishnu, i mean you get a good product, good tuning, and good humor and company.

thanks shiv.

So how much did you pay?
Not just for the Unichip but for the tuning time too.
I assume the good company was for free
