Thoughts on RaceChip

Hi all. So I'm looking into tuning my e350 very disappointed sometimes on the acceleration. Sometimes my acura tl feels faster. I was considering one of the options below one just looks like it plugs into the obd2 port but im not sure I've never chip tuned a car.

I was looking at RaceChip before, but I would personally get the GTS without the XLR. I don't suspect you would end up needing to change the mapping all that much... and you'll have options on the chip housing (and I'd throw in the app control as well).

Personal preference. I didn't end up going this route... but I damn near did.

Yup. I got a Stage 1 tune from OE Tuning. I'm going to try to dyno my car this week to see if there's a measurable improvement. (Though I didn't dyno before... we'll see the "after" numbers.)
