    About 8 months ago when they were having the GB for the speedtuning chips, I got my B5.5 V6 chipped. I love it, but recently I've been throwing those stupid P0421/P0431 codes, which from what I've read is the ECU being oversensitive. If I get the reflash, this would override the chip wouldn't...

    So if I were driving around Denver in my 1.8T, how much power would I be down from driving at around 1000 ft like here in PHX? Does the car automatically adjust to the altitude? It seems I remember a while back you would have to manually retard your timing or advance it or something. I know...
