    I used the Chipwerke piggyback system shown here on my previous Audi S4 and never had the car on the dyno but the power gains were extremely noticeable and never had issues. Ive been looking at this and also the MPT tune for my truck. I hear good things about the MPT tune as well.

    Even though I am always against the piggyback system. Out of curiosity I researched these chipwerke systems. I have to admit i was surprised by all the positive results. I actually could not find much if any negative reviews of them in the Audi or Bmw forums. Apparently they and Racechip are very popular and effective in the German car world. There was even a very detailed right up on the audi forum comparing the Apr stage 1 to the chipwerke piggy back system. I was pretty shocked by the results. My wife used to have the 2013 Audi S4. Back then Apr and Revo was all you heard about if you wanted to make big power. As it was her car i never got to go aftermarket unfortunately.

    B8.5 S4 stock versus APR Stage 1 tune versus Chipwerke piggy back...

    I pulled the trigger and purchased this along with a pedal commander. The chip has three different power settings. Position 1 delivers 50 horsepower, position 2 is 70 and the third position is the 87 that they advertise. It came in position 1 and that is where I left it. Installed it and tested it against my buddies stock 17 raptor. From a rolling start it left the stock raptor like it was standing still. From a dead stop it had the same results. This setup is amazing!!! The best part is that it will not void warranty and both pieces can be removed in under a couple minutes.

    Unless I read it wrong, was it available for the raptor?

    So by installing this, flipping a switch you gain 50 horsepower? Hard to believe Ford would leave that much power sitting on the table. Doesn't sound very safe...

    Step1: Buy 70k truck
    Step2: Plug all sorts of random things in
    Step3: Attempt warranty claim when it goes wrong
    Step4: ??
