FrWilk Chip Question and Report

I bought a FRWilk Chip last week and installed it the other day. I can feel and see the following:

- Smoother higher idle (Just below 900 RPM)
- Stronger Lower End
- Harder Pull
- 7000 Rpm Rev Limiter

Question:

I installed a switch for the altitude sensor jumper. When I switch the switch to it should go back to the stock map. Correct? Except the rev limiter stays at 7,000.

I have only taken it up to about 6800 so i havent tested to see if there is a rev limiter at 7,000. I guess i should grow some cahones and try it out.

I wouldn't keep the car at 6800 for very long.

Also, you could have adjusted the idle at any time, with or without the chip. There is a flathead screw below and to the left of the throttle cam on the throttle body. Turn it one way, higher idle; other way, lower idle.

That being said, the PowerProm is still the best 944 upgrade I have come across.

With the switch off, you are running stock fuel maps. Its evident if you switch off while the car is on the fly. You can really feel the differnce in lower end power.

Make sure you hooked up the switch right and know which way is on and off. With the switch off you should be running stock maps. When you switch the switch on the DME looks for the High Altitude maps which FR-wilk has swapped with a peformance map. So this is how i Believe it to work the stock maps where never touched the chip you swapped was the High altitude map chip. Also like CJ said, I wouldnt get all rev happy all the time just be careful.
