Hartge ECU tuning - Opinions need it

I have an F11 525dA, 4-cyl engine which produce 218hp / 450Nm from factory.
The Hartge ECU module claims to bump this up to 258hp / 530Nm.

The added power would bring this car to 530d level. Is this too much strain for a 2.0L 4-cyl engine? The car is new with 6000km on the clock.

How easy is to remove the module (and all the wires) if something goes wrong and I need to bring car for a service. Can it be done by myself? Open the hood and unplug it, or do you need to dissemble some of the motor parts?

Hartge offers also warranty for their products.
Even with this upgrade the car will not match the performances of the 530d.
