Hey bever, you have a zd30 or 2.5l? I can vouch for the East Coast Performance remap for the zd30. $450 as I recall and I am stoked for the money! Can't speak for the chips though

Yeah it is definitely better. Still a bit of lag of course but a huge improvement overall.
Here are a couple of pics showing the improvement as measured by my Ulysses app

Yeah it has made a massive difference. Don't mind the quarter mile time, I only accelerated to 100.
The stereo is an Android head unit and is OK. Newer ones are better now. Mine has a memory partition of 2gb for apps so doesn't do all I want. I tried running HEMA on it but I can't seem to move map storage to sd card. I can control my phone through the head unit though so I use that for the HEMA app. Otherwise it is fine, Bluetooth connectivity is great, radio works well
I would look for one with 2gig ram now and Android 7

I've done both over the years, a chip on a 3ltr Patrol and a remap on my D23 twin turbo. I prefer the remap. I wasn't that impressed with the chip and had to limit boost and closely watch the turbo temp on the 3ltr when towing.
