Race Chips Ultimate

Has anyone tried this tune ? It looks to be similar to the Madness autoworks Bolt on , but they are claiming 96hp gains vs Madness at 40 hp. I really would rather have a plug and play option.

I am interested in it as well, it looks like Race chip has had success with other models. Its definitely much cheaper than the other options currently out there which charge $1500. I did find one thread awhile back which didn't have much success with it, but not sure if thats just a one-off case.

I'm not aware of any of the Ghibli's on this forum using RC Ultimate ... over the years several have tried without gaining expected benefits. I have no recollection of someone still using this in their Ghibli SQ4.
You can always contact RC USA directly and ask for a Ghibli SQ4 owner reference with before and after dyno's.

It really depends on type of tune and whether driver abuses the car. And also be aware that should Maserati see you have modified their engine settings it could invalidate certain parts of your vehicle warranty if they beleive the tune was the cause.

There are many safe tunes on the market that increase performance.

If your hard on the car it will wear down engine components faster.

A good Ghibli tune or plug&play unleashes some of the untapped power within this biturbo car.

I just bought a Renn chip, I used them on my AMG and was happy with the results. I'll post my impressions when I have a chance to install.

RC was tried here on the forum back in 2015 with no success, didnt even work. Perhaps they fixed it but make sure you can return it if you do purchase it. Bench tuning the Ghibli is effective and has been proven many times over.

So I installed the Rennchip last night. The MAP sensor is a true pain, but patience...a cold beer was waiting for this install completion!

Anyways, it was raining a little so I didn't get to feel it out a ton. What I did notice, right away, a lot more power. The car pulls much harder. It feels great at WOT. I'll report back when I get some miles on it. My initial though is for the price, it's worth every penny. I have used both piggyback systems and flash tuning on cars. With the Ghibli, there isn't any OBD port tuning support. So bench flashing, while it provides a better tune overall just wasn't feasible for me. Like I said, I'll report back with more miles, so far, very happy!

This looks cool, i just saw one for base ghibli is what I have. Do you know why its saying 57hp over 330 OEM. I thought OEM is 345HP? I would be interested passing 400HP if thats accurate. Do you have any check engine light or anything different?
