Superchips for Classic Turbo?

my '99 classic turbo is largely standard except for a green panel filter and hayward & scott backbox... would a superchip chip give me any more useful power and torque... i'm not looking for big power increases but better town drivability... if not superchips, any other chipping company that has good reputation and has branch in belfast or does mail order handset...

from what I can gather, a superchip is of no real use as its unmappable. I believe a unichip would be much more useful or being a 99 you should be able to get an ecutek remap as far as i know

first off stay very very clear of superchips.

second, you don't need to piggy back the my99 for a remap, so for roughly 600-900 a tech 3 custom remap would prob be a good mod, increase bhp, torque, rign the turbo in earlier and harder
