Thanks again Pullejo ! I have some follow-up questions please:I've been running it (racechip GTS Black with the mobile option) in my 2017 R-Sport for about 2 years now and absolutely love it. I added a quicksilver exhaust system two weeks ago and it's a great package. On top of that, we installed the racechip box hidden in the engine compartment and all warranty/standard service have been conducted without notice - I do always disable the racechip box back to factory settings prior to taking it in though (a great feature).
I know you had the S while mine is the 35t, but at what setting / stage you were running? Do you think running at a lower stage or running it in 35t (which has more 'potential to boost' than the S engine tune) would be less prone to error codes?The only issue I had with the RaceChip is that the car about once a month would throw a check engine light for boost overpressure.
I had the RaceChip GTS Black on my 2017 V6 First Edition for about 1.5 years of the almost 3 years I had the car before turning it in for the SVR. It clearly improved throttle response and maybe added a little power, but since my car was already 380HP the seat of the pants feel compared to the 340 HP V6 was much less. The only issue I had with the RaceChip is that the car about once a month would throw a check engine light for boost overpressure. I had a OBDII reader to reset that code and things just kept trucking. I clearly removed the RaceChip anytime I took the FP in for service. The only issue with that was that connector near the firewall it was a real biach to get that one changed either when pulling the unit or putting it back on.
Interestingly enough RaceCHIp told me I could add the same unit to my SVR if I wanted to to increase boost there. They wouldn't tell me what the HP increase might be but they said increasing boost on the supercharger is done the same way. While I still have the racechip I have not added it to the SVR, probably won't since to me 550 HP is plenty
Thanks for the info, very helpful. This is the reason I am still reluctant. While the error codes may not be serious, I will still go panic when I see them and will make me sleepless.To answer Jay, I think I was running it at 3 or 4 setting, I started high, and then slowly stepped it back. It seemed that all settings eventually caused the fault code. So I just started resetting the code since the car ran exactly the same.
I wouldn't in the wildest dream install a $70 chip from ebay in my vehicle, no offence. The popular here (and if I would ever do that) is RaceChip.Has anyone tried one of those OBD2 port tuning chip (plug)?

Hi Ken,Who knows of any ECU tuning software that can allow you to really tune these vehicles. my goal is to add a port injection supercharger from Whipple along with a completely forged motor. I'm looking to produce 800 wheel horsepower on gas maybe 900 horsepower on E85. I understand I will need to beef up the drivetrain that's not a problem just looking for somebody who has tuning software or something like HP tuners that will be able to tune these vehicles properly.
