Default RaceChip Tuning Box Installed :)

Hi All,

I have installed Race Chip Tuning Box which i bought it from Germany.
It's a 2 year Birthday Gift for my Car
It took 10 mts to installed and fasten with given strings.
Now my Silver Streak has 112 Bhp of Power and 268 Nm of Torque.
I'll update with my experience later.

Check this URL:
Chiptuning RaceChip - Fiat Linea 1.3 JTD, 1248ccm, 66kW (ca.90PS)

New cars came after 2010 is with different Turbo and some power increase. Check the old engine and New Engine power in Fiat India Site.
So proportionally it increases in the Race Chip too.

Yesterday i went for a small Test Drive with my car installed with Race Chip Tuning Box.
But i could not find any free roads inside chennai other than Raj Bhavan Road.
Initail power/Pickup is same as stock, But Mid an High Range is awesome.
In Gear Acceleration is definitely increased by 30-40% as assumed.
Man, it pulled like a locomotive and i couldn't manage to steer the car little bit afraid too.
It's pulled like the swift, once the turbo is spooling.
Really a worth buying and money well spend.
I am very eager to check the power in the open roads.
So plan for a trip to my native in coming weeks and will post the full story.

Enjoy and Drive Safe

Really a gaint leap in price.
As heard, Every Spare is increased by FIAT in last 3 months by Rs.100 to Rs.1000 depends on the actual price.
I called to find the availability of stock, But they told the spares section is now moved to poondhamalli.
Anyways, I got it from Bangalore itself paying rs814.

Recently I started facing a squeaking noise from the front passenger side, I couldn't figure out the exact source of it.

Do you have any idea about this problem, I see many Linea's facing this squeaking problem. I prefer a DIY this time if this is due to some nuts and bolts that is to be tightened,rather than taking it to A.S.S for such small things.

I just stick 2 way sticker without peel one side in both corners to avoid rattling.

Guys,
Whether I need to detach battery terminal for sometimes to restart ECU to read the new addition Race Chip Tuning Box?
But nothing mentioned in installation manual.
How do I know that the race chip is working without going for Dyno test?

@Ash, Can you please be clear on which part of glove box would create this noise ?
@aks, can you please tell where to stick the 2 way sticker ?, I could not understand which corners you mean here.

Both the inside right and left corners where the lid is touching the Glove Box.
Just to suppress the friction between them.
It has some ply on closed lid which brushes the box makes some rattling noise.
