    I have a 96 the same as you. My car is Superchipped. Been very happy with the performance. Jabbasport and AMD can also chip your car.

    I had the same problem with Revo technology (early ECU), you need to have the physical chipped changed and remapped. As MadKebab says - I had mine done at Jabba

    Yes thanks Matey.... It was the ECU that went pop.... The garage owner (bless him) stumped up the bill for the new ECU (aprox £1300) and even paid to have the Jabba chip put back in the car.... Top marks to that guy /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif Got same performance (as expected really)

    I just paid for the original work (Brake pads, water pump, stat and belts)....

    He has a bit more back off me as well as I had a knocking coming from underneath and it turned out to be the ARB drop links ('C' shaped link) - one was Knac'd and the other one was on it's way (no movement but a rubber starting to perish), so I had them both done at the same time (only £20 each plus 1.25 hours labour).......
