Mountain Chip Empty Mountain Chip

I was looking at getting myself one of the highly recommended Mountain Chips for my Elan. I loved the idea of increasing the boost from stock 0.65 to 0.80 or 0.90 pushing the power up to a lovely 200bhp.

Thing is after taking the car out today I managed to catch the boost gauge reading and on full throtle it is already hitting what seems to be 0.80 ... a smidge over the 3/4 marking on the boost gauge.

Does this mean that the ECU has already got an upgraded chip as its unlikely to have a receipt in the service book as it is appears to be a fairly simple DIY job. Will ElanScan tell me what chip type is being used or will I need to acutally take out the chip from the ECU to find out?



Stock Turbo Elan

Maximum programmed boost 0.65bar
Fuel cut limit 0.92bar
Boost pickup rate quite slow (boost lags
behind target value
under heavy throttle)

Nominal power 165bhp (flywheel)

Kilimanjaro

Maximum programmed boost 0.8bar
Fuel cut limit 0.96bar
Boost pickup rate enhanced
Dyno power 180bhp (flywheel estimated)

Everest

Maximum programmed boost 0.9bar
Fuel cut limit 0.98bar
Boost pickup rate enhanced
Dyno power 200bhp (flywheel estimated)

Elysium Mons (only on switcher boards)

Maximum programmed boost 0.95bar (mid-range only 0.9bar at high revs)
Fuel cut limit 1bar
Boost pickup rate enhanced
Dyno power 200bhp (flywheel estimated)

Im not up to speed with chip upgrades, but plenty on LEC have. I would suggest having the car measured on the rolling road soon after a service. This will give you a baseline from which to work from and measure any subsequent mods.

Personally I wouldnt upgrade unless you intend to do track days! thats just my opinion.

Many M100 owners have followed this path and cant stop smiling... Very Happy

Yea cheers ... tbh because I use the car an awful lot it is probably more sense to have the standard chip on the car so im not sure id upgrade until I can really afford to and then having the available switch would be good so I could use the standard settings 90% of the time. If there is a mountain chip currently running the ecu though then I will certainly be keeping it lol.
