Default Changed title: Racechip review

Read below for review. I changed the topic due to a member asking about this upgrade.

Things worked it self out and the cel turned off today. So far Iím loving the Racechip. What a rush. The Q7 now feels a lot sportier the way it should have been day one. Install took 30 minutes but only because I flipped the plugs the first time and have to take it apart again. They should make the spot for the lock clip since both sides are the same.

where do you find the biggest difference...when you start from stop, mid range or top range or all over the rev range?

Iím not sure why so many folks complain about this upgrade. The low end drives nice and smooth unlike my BMW X5 with the burger piggyback did which was jerky. I like that. I feel itís like today I just want a relaxing ride and you have it. It does feel like it woke up a bit on the low end. Where the real power is now is in the mid to high rpms. Wow this Q7 just rockets. It feels like a whole new car. When I bought this Q7 last month I was a bit disappointed at the passing performance. It felt like there was so much more it could do but was held back. Almost like I had a small trailer hooked up. Now I feel like it has no baggage and almost like itís a way bigger engine. You will hear a lot more of the supercharger air like you do with most turbos when the are tuned. I wouldnít call this turbo lag performance. I have owned mostly turbo vehicles for the past 10 years. I still own a 2005 Cayenne Turbo. The power when you stump on it is very linear but strong. I would even say this Q7 could give my Cayenne a run for its money now.

The best part once you take the top of the engine off once you can easily pull the whole unit off before a dealer visit in 10-15 mins. I was going to do the REVO tune but with my 3 1/2 years left on the warranty and the CPO 1 year on top of that it wasnít worth losing the warranty for a bit more performance. This was worth every penny. Iím very picky and canít say anything bad about this piggyback. I do need someone to chime in on the best location for the box. I have it zip tied to the brake lines now.

How many miles did you wait before installing the chip and does it void the warranty?

With this chip, once you remove it, can the dealer find out if a chip was ever installed and void car warranty for any particular reason?

I have a 2019 q7 3.0, with only 500 miles on it now.

Thanks

I bought a CPO with 9k on it. My X5 I tuned it around 300 miles so your fine. It should be a problem with the dealer as long as you pull it before hand. Takes nothing to pull it. Air filter cover then engine cover. Last unplug two plugs. A lot easier then the X5 one. That took cutting wires etc.

Which racechip did you get the RSblack, RS or regular? Did you buy the app control to easily configure it for eco/sport/sport + mode?

Pics of install would be great if you have - just wondering how easy it really is to install.
