I just got my 99 B5 chipped here in connecticut this saturday by the ppl @ UPsolute. Scott did the chipping for me and i am impressed with results. it feels like my engine has new life. i can actually hear the turbo now and the power increased throughout the whole powerband. Its been 2 days and so far no problems at all. *2 thumbs up* Great job UPsolute! :bow:

ps - i thought a car was behind my b5 pushing it along, when it was really the xtra boost...haa :D

Welcome to the Upsolute Club - scotty_passat chapter. He did my 99 and couldn't agree more about the feeling of a new car. Jumping from 150hp to almost 200 is amazing.

Hey Scotty, I had mine done by Rene about 3 years ago. Is there a newer version of the programming out there? Would it be beneficial for me to upgrade? Thanks!

When i got chipped with UPsolute about a month ago, the programmer Gary said that there was three available programs for my engine/car, and that each one is the same amount of HP/ftlbs, but for different mileages. He said that some cars with higher mileage would need a slightly different set up, and wow, what can i say, my 105,000km B5 feels like it is bran new all of a sudden. :thumbup:

Actually the different programs are updates, not depending on mileage of car as I never said that. :) Some cars might have idle issues or hesitating, so the updates fixes those issues. But then some cars run better with the older programs and have no problems with it.
