I'm just wanting to know are they worth the investment ? I know the chips are easy to fit but there are varying types all over ebay for the mondeo 2.0 tdci mk 3 and im non the wiser to how much i should be paying for one with prices varying wildly. anyone with any recomends ? horror stories ?
I fitted a dynamic diesels unit to my mk3 2.0 130 about a month before xmas and its been no trouble at all, it works by altering the fuel supply pressure in the commonrail and has 10 different settings, i've found level 4 is about the best setting as its upped the power noticably but its also returning better mpg (about 46.2 urban & 55 on a run), it's also literally a 10 minute job to fit so theres no garage bills to fork out for. I paid about £68 on ebay, and think it was well worth the money, just make sure you read all the info available on whichever one you go for as like mintalkin says, some just fool the ECU into thinking the engines cold and that can end up leading to problems with overfueling and going into the dreaded 'limp home' mode! hope this helps
