Anyone think it is worth a try? Or has anyone done any other tuning to their SC? TIA

Sounds interesting but I'm not familiar with it. There have been other "performance enhancers" that were just a resistor, basically simulating what the sport switch does. They were worthless from all the past reviews. But I don't know about this one, it actually claims to have a micro in it.

One of the Amazon reviews
"This product changes the throttle response and states it changes the timing/fuel maps etc. I work at a high performance tuner. We have dyno tested this chip. It actually took HP/TQ away. This is junk! "

Thanks for the help guys. I didn't think it would do anything, but I just wanted to see your opinions. Thanks!

I wish there were more tuning options for our cars. BMW's have so many options to tune the car, but I haven't found anyone that tuned an SC430 without major mods.
