Review On DPCHIP Chip Installation. Recommend to Install on all Your 4WD.


I recently purchased a DP Chip for my 2015 Isuzu DMax and had it installed by a local mechanic. Its only been a week but I have noticed a substantial change in the vehicles performance. Its delivering as promised. The acceleration is quicker and smoother and the "grunt" is outstanding. No more dropping down from 5th to 4th going uphill, I can actually still accelerate in top gear travelling uphill. Apart from the on road driving I have done a bit of beach driving over the few days and the DMax traveled the sand better than pre chip. Great work.

I was contemplating a remap before deciding on a DP Chip, glad I chose the chip. I must confess a remap concerned me, I was concerned that the remap would produce the promised figures which were high. My concern was the drivetrain having to cope with limits above what it was designed for. I wasnt interested in replacing clutches either. Anyway, loving the DP chip, love the DMax and I would recommend it to anyone contemplating it.

Hey guys
Just wanted to give some positive feed back on my experience with Berrima diesel and the DPchip and exhaust package.
I have a 2013 TD Toyota prado auto , I have had it since new it has 37000kms on it.
I brought the DPchip and 3in exhaust package and yesterday I put the exhaust on and my god it's a different car , it feels like it wants to go, the seat of the pants difference is so much more than I could of asked for and I'm only in the standard setting.
The prado tows the van with ease now and I have only done a quick test trip but the difference is night and day and it looks like I might save a couple of liters per 100km as well.
The kit was $2100 delivered to outback WA and worth every cent.
They sent the chip out straight away and the exhaust rocked up 2 weeks later
The exhaust fitted straight on with no dramas."

Cheers - John

It still conforms to all the emission requirements does it?
