Default chip for engine

I have a 114 hp and am going to get a chip for the engine. What i am wondering is how high can i go with the chip. Also would like some advice on where to buy one.

One of the Cheapest and most effective ways, is to purchase a Rover Ron Synergy Box.

In addition, X-Power are doing the CDTi (131) Re-map for half price.

I visited an X-Part Servicecentre in Nottingham today to get a quote on re-mapping a 115bhp 75 and the 1st person on the service reception didn't know what I was talking about so she spoke to a Technician who told me that he wasn't sure that they could still get the CD's and even if they could it was not worth doing it as I would not notice much difference in bhp and the car would use more fuel. Oh, and the cost would be c£400 - £500 !!!
I don't think so, do you?

I think I'd avoid that place like the plague.

I've had it done:-

1. It costs £200 (less if you get discount)

2. Oh BOY do you notice the difference

3. My fuel consumption hasn't changed a jot.

Maybe you'd like to shove my answer up their nose because they need something to wake them up.

My thoughts exactly. Could not believe it really, having read other posts about this subject.
I certainly WILL NOT be having any further conversations with them about anything Rover, thats for sure.

Hi Raistlin,
Could you tell me where you got your upgrade from?
Cheers

Cheers for that, Paul.
I will have to contact them to see what price they can offer for the upgrade.
Thanks
