I have one sitting here from a SV89 (VN are 180kw aswell). Keep in mind you need the knock sensor aswell, other then that a piece of piss.

knock sensor?
ive got a foam racing chip and it seems to be ok with out the knock sensor
Foam most likely disabled the knock sensor. If it was still active it would be showing the check engine light and throwing a fault code.

Yeah, I just sent him a eprom with the knock sensor disabled and top of the range HSV'ish timing, will be a fair bit stronger then the 185 chip but nothing super radical. This is because he was saying the HZ is almost faster than the VN :p, almost blasphemy oooooow!!!!! my rabbit just bit my arm while I was typing anyway it should have taken a easy half a second out of the 0-100 on the old bt1, enough to keep the HZ in the mirrors for a bit longer
