In a nutshell: it accentuates the existing powercurve rather than complement it.

In a bit more detail: The car is already good (torquey) in 2nd, 3rd and 4th @2500-4000rpm and the RaceChip improves that.

However, what this engine needs is torque low and power in high gears: @1500-2500rpm it is dead and remains dead with the RaceChip.

Similarly in 5th/6th on the motorway you will need to go down to 4th sometimes with or without the RaceChip.

So £450 (+ extra insurance + engine/clutch stress) to be a bit more torquey within a range in 2nd, 3rd and 4th is not a good investment, hence it is going back.

P.S. The car is possibly going to be going back as well but that is detailed in another thread...

No amount of Black box or custom re-mapping is going to bring the torque curve down. That is the limitation of turbocharged small capacity engines, accentuated by the heavy Tarraco.
