How did you make that much power out of an M50?

The custumed tuned chip made all the differance. The stantard M-50 makes about 170-176 hp at the wheels. The guy that did my chip regularly make 185- 189hp a real10 12 percent more power. It made 192hp 186lb.ft with a dinan chip headers exhaust ( custom front half with a X pipe for the 02 sensor no cats to a supersprint rear section with another X pipe and custom intake and heat shield. He was able to make the 16hp 8lb.ft just by optimizing the tune to suit my other modifications. It was worth the $400.00 dollars that included dyno time.
