Hi, anyone know anything about the V4 chip.... i.e. how do I find out what chip I've already got?, if I need one where can I get it?, what improvement would I see?, at what price, and how easy is it to fit? Etc, etc...

Hi, thanks for the very fast reply... I've heard about the Norfolk Wolf, and I've seen a couple of his short videos on 'youtube'. Seems (from the article) that any V3 / V4 difference is marginal, so it might not be worth the bother upgrading in any case. Unless....of course someone else has information on this subject??

Considering the low price I would re chip. When I tested machines with and without the new chip on mineralised ground near Carmarthen a cut hammered and a rose farthing became dig targets.
I don't know what the price is for a new chip. For the old XP's I think it was 20 fitted. Easy to fit yourself so should be cheaper if your prepared to open the control box yourself.

If your worried about D.I.Y. I would wait for a Rally where a dealer like Regton is attending. Gary, the original importer for XP could do the job in a few minutes.

Thanks for that info... I used to work as a TV service engineer so actually replacing the chip won't be too much of a problem. I think I will go for the conversion. I'll do some 'repeatable' tests with the V3 fitted, then do the identical tests with the V4 in place. I'll report the results on this forum. Once again thanks for your information.
