    I have had both stage 1 and stage 2 H-Dev chips in my old S13 and also H-Dev stage 1a in my S14 many years ago. No problems at all.

    Drove down to see Jez and get him to install the chip in my 14 about 15/16yrs ago, really nice guy. Very helpful on the phone when discussing options - he didnt push his own stuff on me, we talked about a few different options and I settled on his own stuff in the end.

    I’ve never heard a bad thing about Jez and or his chips, but I’m allergic to Facebook so maybe that’s why?

    Some of the Facebook groups with Australian members deride "stage tuning". They aren't happy unless you spend 1000 on an after market ECU + 1000 having it installed and mapped by a "tuner" - all for an extra 30bhp at the wheels more than a H-dev stage 3.

    They will happily point people at a driftopia page that says connect the heater outlet on block to the thermostat by-pass outlet.

    Fit oil cooled Diesel turbos.

    Render the turbo thermosyphon cooling inoperative by eliminating the plenum.

    Wonder why it stalls when they have left the neutral switch off.

    Wonder why it stalls when they cleaned the manifold up and threw the idle and fast idle system in the bin.

    There's nothing bad about them as I keep saying, but Facebook is where the mongs patrol and that's where they take a lot of flack.

    @Milsom93 - Have you had the AFRs checked on a rolling road with your current set up ?

    If you have and they were good all through the rev range then you are all good and anything anyone posts in this thread about good chips/bad chips is pretty much irrelevant.

    It could be lean on boost and rich everywhere else and you wouldn't necessarily see it on the plugs.

    Jesus Christ will you drop off with your sniping. It's an observation about the attitude of people on social media to prepare him for backlash.

    Anywhere else it would be considered friendly. Fcuk me chap.

    Not had it on a rolling road however I have a AEM wideband and had a friend check the AFRs both on the road and a track day whilst I was driving and weve made a few subtle adjustments on the Apexi S-AFC to fine tune it across the Rev range partial and full throttle to keep it safe

    I'm sniping ? Take a look at yourself fella.

    The thread is "What's my car worth ?" not "who should I trust/not trust when looking at HD chips ?"

    Guys what Piman2k is trying to say is that he likes h-dev and trusts them, but if you post the car for sale on certain social media platforms then you will get a lot of people commenting regarding the map/tune as most of the scene has now been guided by another mapper who is very vocal. The other mapper has a large following and believes that all of his competitors are rubbish. People forgot that cars come from factory with a generic tune.

    He’s not said the map is bad just hi-lighting that a few narrow minded people on social media will likely comment regarding the tune and to be ready for it.

    That is exactly correct.
