To be fair, nothing's meant to be chipped...if the manufacturer wanted it to be that way, they'd have done it from the factory. Guess we need to ask what the chip is for. If it's economy, general usability etc then yes, absolutely, the electric bit should be doing that for you. If it's so you can win the pub competition of who has the biggest horsepowers, then we are beyond the realm of rational debate.Also seems to blow up your turbo. Find the thread where an owner had the unexpected finding that his had been 'chipped' by a previous owner and successive turbo failures later are not covered under warranty.
Really, hybrids are not meant to be 'chipped', it is pointless to do that, the electric motor is your 'chip'.
