Chip Express Tune 200 horsepower 348 ft-lbs of torque

I was wondering if anyone had used this chip. I'd probably wait until the car was well broken in (like 10,000 kms) before getting one, but I wanted to know if anyone out there had any experience with it? It looks decent and appears that you can set it differently so that you can have more of a conservative tune or run it all the way up to 200 horsepower and 348 ft-lbs of torque. It's expensive, but for 50 horsepower and like 80 ft-lbs of torque, if it didn't cause the car to blow up, it could be worth while. Here is the link to the website.

Diesel Tuning Chip for Chevrolet Cruze 2.0 VCDI 150PS / 110kW / 148bhp

Edit: Also found this chip tune website. Anyone know anything about it? I have looked through the forum but can't seem to find a whole lot of info on tunes for the Cruze diesel.

I was wondering when someone, or many, would come up with a tune for the CTD. I would imagine there's a ton of HP left in these engines and a tune would certainly bring it out. I read a little about the EFI tune and it seems it makes a lot more HP, at least on the dyno. I would be afraid that transmission, differential and other components might not be built tough enough for that much HP. Without limited slip, I'm not sure you could put the power to the ground. I'd sure like to see what the "tune" does for acceleration times. I wonder about the Aisin transmission and how tough it is???

I added several thousand dollars worth of bolt ons on my Corvette and had it tuned afterward. The tune seemed to pull everything together and added another 19 HP on top of the other stuff. In the end, I was up about 60hp over bone stock and dropped more than a second off of my ETs at the drag strip.
