    Sorry I know ECUs/Chips have been beat to death on every VW board. I have searched a lot, but haven’t found a strait answer/comparison. So here goes. Neuspeed - Lower HP/Tq numbers than APR/GIAC, therefore less boost, and I heard that it is smoother. Would this be the best chip for around...

    After reading the Info writeup i was excited to get the chip, except i dont have a lot of disposable cash. I read in the writeup of how he has the wett chipp for like 200$, except they updated the chip and now it cost like 4-500$. Is there any place that sells it for around 200$ anymore?

    I am looking, Like all of us, for a little more pep. I know there is the CHIP/Tuners ( 5-15 HP at Best and Less than $1000) And then the Supercharger ( Approx 50 HP - $5000). The question is there something in the middle? Is there more you can do after the chip? Do not want to invest in the...

    H2O Tuning in Huntsville, AL might be the site for a well know chip tuner to open up a new store. I can't tell you who because the deal is not finalized yet. All I can tell you is they are Swedish and well know for their fire breathing GTI. Once this deal goes through would any of you be...

    Word up my heavy front wheel-drive German car-driving brethren. I love my Passat. I also secretly hate it. Not a fan of not having gears, though it was a steal and my wife prefers auto rides. I want an ECU upgrade or a chip for the existing unit. The car's a 98 saloon V6 with, as I mentioned...

    I just traded my automatic '02, 6 cyl Passat for a new manual '06 with the 2.0T engine. I read post that say you can get significantly more power by adding a chip. My new Passat has under 100 miles and I'm not in a rush to do anything now especially since I'm in the break-in period. But I may...

    Just bought a B5.5, and the dealer was trying to sell me a rock chip gaurd that they apply to the paint. They wanted $1600 for it so I told them to keep it. Is there a reasonably priced alternative out there, and is it worth it or just a scam?

    right now i have an mbc @ 10 psi and have taken the n75 out of the loop. I can probably get it up to 13psi w/ a cartech fpr that i have that's awaiting installation, but i think i'm going to give chipping the car a try. Is the N75 valve needed when chipping the car? I dont mean for safty, i mean...

    Ok, this is probably a dumb question, but I was wondering what happens if you use regular gas with a chipped car? The only reason I ask is that I have about a quarter of a tank left of regular, and I'm going to get my ecu tomorrow? Will the car just not perform as it should? Thanks

    Hello, my name is Ryan. I live near Chicago and just bought a 2003 fresco green 1.8T, Black leather, 40K. I was wondering what anyone who has a chip thinks about their respective brands. Are there any that are more respected etc. I have a certified car, and probably wouldnt buy one until I hit...
