Question about Microwave Ovens
Hi there, my main job is as a mechanic, and I work with motorsport as well. Some companies are a little unscrupulous about the claims thier chips can produce. If I am going to be honest remapping your ecu is not a bad thing if you want that little extra power and economy. Not knowing what your vehicle is, it does become a little hard to give you spot on advice but I can give you the information I know.
If you have a turbo diesel vehicle with an electronically controlled turbo wastegate then chipping your car can give you quite a boost. The 40% increase you mention is quite a claim as if you think your car maybe 130BHP as standard so this company is claiming to increase that by roughly 60BHP. That is quite a lot from just a chip and personally I think this would be difficult on a stock car.
The aim of a chip primarily is to perfect ignition/fueling. All very well on a petrol ignition car but when it comes to a diesel it is a little different. Because of the way a diesel runs you cannot really change the "ignition" so to speak, just injector duration will effectively adds to or reduces the amount of fuel taken into the engine cylinders. I would say that most ECU chips for diesel cars will more than likely change turbo pressures which, in the long run, is not good. You are overperforming your turbo which could make it wear out quicker, produce "pinging" or "pre-ignition" of the fuel in the cylinder and ulitmately this could cause more harm than good.
My advice would be to go to a proper motorsport workshop if you can and have a good chat with them about the pro's and cons. Yes you will get a performance increase but is that increase in power really worth the unseen damage it may be doing to the already fine tuned manufacturers settings.
I hope this helps you out a bit in understanding more of what you want to do.
As to your insurance, yes you do need to declare it to stay legal. As with your emissions it really shouldn't affect them that much.
As for companies, there are many around, look for the ones that have a testimonials page with feedback from customers but bear in mind, are they really going to post the bad customer experiences?
I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I have you some information that will answer all your questions. The performance chips in noway will hurt your emissions and the claim of 40% increase is probably a little exaggerated. But never the less, you will see a marked improvement in your vehicles over all performance. Check that link I sent. Will answer a lot of other questions. I hope I have been helpful.
