Default ECU chips

Who does the best ECU chips?

I'm running a B230 FT on a 16T and 3" turbo back system. I'd like to take the boost higher but I'd rather get the fuelling set up before going above 10psi.

I'm aiming for around 250bhp so not an unachievable goal but it'll definitely need a few other tweaks.

A lot of people use TLAO chips from a guy on Turbobricks although I have heard mixed reviews. Another fella on ebay sells them called Boostin Billy. I am going to get mine from stoni's- world a guy in CZ who will write them to your engine spec...

Will the stock injectors get me to 250bhp or am I looking at new ones?

They will just about do it but going to be right on the limit. I prefer to have a reasonable margin left and would go slightly bigger on the injectors

I can do them. My setup is pretty much the same as yours except I have blue injectors. I can tailor a chip for your setup.

I think it is.

Its all well and good buying these ready made chips, tlao, boostin Billy, stoni, Mike etc, they haven't got YOUR engine, YOUR injectors, YOUR turbo. You can't beat custom tuning. I can do a custom road tune or for a price use my brothers dyno, whatever suits.

EXACTLY...I will DEFO be in touch once I have my go faster bits fitted......
A guy I follow on youtube was using TLAO chips, then he had it tuned using an ostrich.the gains were massive, it's definitely the way forward...
