Hey, this is
Benster here in Charlotte, NC.
I have been using Mark's "UltraChip" for over a
month now and absolutely love it.
I have had/used all
the major chips and do like Mark's the
best as far as the "ass-dyno" goes and hope to
arrange some dyno time this weekend.
As far as
"what the chip is like":
1.) The idle is set
a "tad" higher. My M5 idles at about 850 rpms
which gives the engine a nice "purr" instead of
the "grumble" sort of rumbling feeling of the idle
of the other chips. Shifting into first is immediately
smooth and responsive.
2.) The torque feel

just a general more aggressive feeling. It feels like
I am always in the power no matter what gear and what rpm.
4.) Gas mileage is
about the same as the JC chip. We didn't buy these
cars for their fuel economy! :)

chip back in for a week and a half and drove around to
"numb my senses". I put Mark's chip back in
this morning and drove in to work. Huge
difference over stock. Like an entirely different
All I need now is a
new exhaust (I'm thinking a B&B triflow) to make it a
little louder because the car purrs now with the slight
To sum up, I am
very happy. I do not know Mark other than a few
e-mails, but he has one killer chip! No, I'm not
getting any special favors either! Although, I could
use a discount on one of his "Chip Switchers" when
they become a reality. I'm am SO SICK of swapping
