Default TAP chip for audi 90?

Has anyone gotten the chip upgrade from Total Audi Performance for the 2.8 1992 to 1995 Audi 90?
They say it raises horses by 22 hp, and it costs $225. If anyone has gotten it, do you like it and was it worth the money?

I wouldn't believe their claim for a second. That is a lot of horsepower to gain from a simple fuel delivery mod. I have played around with engines enough not to buy such exaggerated claims. A chip with air flow improvements perhaps, but not just a chip. I won't name the one liter four cylinder engine I have been fooling with ( it's German however ) piston and rod combinations balanced to within 0.10 grams, a blueprinted head with port matching, knife edged valve guide bosses, greatly cleaned up ports, volume matched combustion chambers, five angle valve seat cut, 3mm larger throttle bodies ( each cyl has a separate throttle body ) and a reworked L-Jetronic air flow meter, all checked on a dyno with a gas analyzer with a perfect 14 to 1 air to fuel ratio across the rev range and this nets a whopping five horsepower. Woo woo. A chip isn't giving you that kind of power increase.

I have not heard good things about TAP (Total Audi Performance) and I dont believe those claims. I do have a chip from Upsolute and it gave 11 h.p. (with a full tune up), 1 h.p. less then advertised, but Im happy with those gains. Remember its just a piece of the puzzle.
