I tried one a good while backbut on a 2.0l 90bhp version. The tuning box had switch settings to adjust the 'tuning' so I chose the middle ground of the various settings. Car ran ok with no noticeable difference until I was leaving the M62 to join the A627M headed home in Oldham. Traveling around the roundabout the engine got real lumpy and I had no power. It seemed to be in limp home mode. Not good on a busy mortorway during rush hour. I managed to speed away to the hard shoulder at about 20mph. I removed the box and went back to stock, turned the engine over and it ran like normal. Needless to say the chip box went in the bin as I wouldn't want the same thing to happen to someone else. If I ever feel the need to get a car tuned I would take it to a place that specialises and get a proper job done.
