This just gets worse, and worse, and worse:
Just a quick line or two about the type of service you might expect from Powerchip & the service you may actually receive.
My Dear wife for Christmas paid for one of there chips after much discussion and help from both Josh Cross and Lance @ Powerchip. Unfortunatly, the chip program didn't conform with my ECU. I forwarded the chip & my ECU to Josh & Lance.
I was then informed that due to a software problem they were not able to provide me with a chip to suit my EL Fairmont Ghia 4.0. They then returned my ECU and said a full refund would be given. Fair enough I said to myself, so I rang Josh who explained the problem and I told him I would hold off for a month or so to till they got things together.
Two days latter I ring and ask about the refund of my wifes money and spoke with Wayne Besanko who's apparently is the Manager of the place. The manner in which he spoke to me was nothing short of offensive. I am a purchasing manager for a major engineering concern in Brisbane and I was thoroughly discusted with his (Wayne Besanko) manner, attitude and absolute lack of customer service and focus.
Needless to say I am now the very proud and happy owner of a ChipTorque Chip, Crow billet cam & SS Cold air induction which has transformed my Tickford 4.0 into a fantastic sleeper, the torque increase is sensational.
Oh & Yes the refund has been credited to our account.
I am glad I spent my hard earned cash with people who value my custom.

Kind of funny to see Wayne getting internet justice, that thread on performanceforums about powerchip is up to 35 pages now, lol, here is the summary:
- Member of PF was selling 2nd hand headers
- Wayne Besanko from Powerchip emailed him and said he is violating section 52 of something or other and wants said PF member to remove description from his add as it is not a genuine product of 'CarGraphic' and followed through with legal action if said PF member didn't
- Everyone went WTF
- Wayne Besanko continued to threaten legal action and said he would respond by 8am Queensland time
- First suggestion to dump a gearbox on his driveway happened
- A few PF members edited his Wiki page to something a little more accurate
- Another PF member fingered Wayne Besanko wife
- lol's followed
- 8am deadline passed, haven't heard from Wayne Besanko
- FINALLY, 9 hours after given time, Wayne Besanko told original PF member with advertisement, to stop editing his Wiki page or there will be more legal action
- PF trying to bump their thread up on Google search results by using Wayne Besanko and Powerchip in as many sentences as they can
- Found photos of Wayne Besanko daughter and posted online, however possibly may not be Wayne Besanko daughter
- Another PF member put a gearbox on Wayne Besanko front door step
- lol's followed
- Wayne Besanko emailed original PF member threatening to sue for slander
- Wayne Besanko posted on MB World that the police have been called. Wayne Besanko hasn't yet figured out that PF are doing most of the damage
- No further word yet from Wayne Besanko
- No word from the Police
- PF continuing to talk about how epic the epic thread is and how terrible Wayne Besanko and Powerchip are

Those cliffs are funny.
It seems that a recent groupbuy was started by Matt @ Powerchip but under another account some guy acting like just a regular user that $#@! is funny I knew something was up with that.Kees on M5 Board is my bitch....

Notice in post one he acts a regular person that "contacted" Powerchip and then in Post 15 his Powerchip info is in the signature WTF!
These are from the same user LOL...
Well I ended up going in yesterday and they treated me well and finished the job fast!
I asked about how to drive the car after and if I needed to do anything special. He told me it would take a little bit for the new codes to be learned and to drive it a bit more aggressive. I didn't notice too much of a change at first when I drove off like at 11am. But I drove the car all day and by then end of the night I was FLYING! j/k...but I do notice the increase. It's awesome on the freeway. It's much easier and less stress on the car it seems to pass up. It's kinda hard to drive speed limit now because it picks up so much easier. Well worth it IMO.
Above is a picture of my ride sitting there patiently while they took the heart out and were working on it.
Below are a couple of customers rides that were there. I was thinking if this shop is working on a caliber of vehicles like this, they must be trusted.
I recommend this!Hey Guys, the group buy ends on the 23rd of December, we hope those of you who have the tune are enjoying your new found power.
If any late comers would like to join the group buy we are happy to have you, simply call us or send us an email and let us know your ecu is on the way, we will take care of the rest

Read his post I just updated mine. "B AS IN BENZ" is the Matt because why else would he have Powerchip contact info in his sig and address everyone about the group buy if he was just relaying a message? The best part is in the last post he didn't figure out that the guy asking about the tune is the same guy that said he fingered Wayne's wife on wikipedia hence he made the reference to his "itchy finger" LOL I fell outta my chair...Kees on M5 Board is my bitch....

In he sig he just lists Powerchip, not sure why that would be done though. If it was Matt doing it under the guise of someone else that would be really obvious and easily caught though.
I looked through the post history and some posts appear as coming from Matt? I don't get it, almost all that users posts are about powerchip so maybe he is pretending to be someone else to organize a group buy but I think the guy is just relaying Matt's posts as early on his posts seem genuine.

It must be expensive for evosport to keep the lights on, which is why they're going after people who speak out about them and their pals. Check this out - they charged some poor sap on m5board $720 in labor to install a set of springs.

However, that is not to say that excuses anything relating to MBworld.

Saw all this and couldn't help but think of someone who deserves this more then him.
I believe at one point a member had forwarded me one of these threatening emails from a lawyer created in MS Word with NO signature, and misspellings, and the wrong statute explained for the "crime" that was being committed. Aussies are brutal, I spit my Fosters as soon as I saw the gearbox. Must suck to be hated - INTERNATIONALLY!
Who does he think he's fooling?

Powerchip's name is ruined. Forever whenever someone searches for Powerchip, "Powerchip is a bunch of $#@!s" is going to come up...
