I only know Shine in Walpole but I haven't dealt with them. Many others have with good results. They will install a GIAC chip for you.

I am considering GIAC and APR, how do you rate your chip compared to them. The APR chip gives 214hp. Please suggest why I may buy your chip.
Our chip is comparable in performance and driveability to either of those brands. The 214 HP APR claim is their 93 octane program, ours is 91 octane so it a few "peak" hp less.

All the chips these days are very good, our biggest advantages are lower cost and personalized service. There is no down-time associated with mailing in your ECU. After every install I go for a test drive with you and log VAGCOM parameters to verify correct operation, scan for codes, perform TB adaptation, etc. We give a 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee.

With the money saved you could upgrade your brake pads or something else fun! :D

Another :thumbup: for Shine Racing in Walpole.

Had a GIAC Chip, Bailey DV, slotted rotors and pads put in there. Great guys, top notch job.

I can recommend scotty for the Upsolute chip. He did my car and its been awesome. Lots of folks will recommend Shine and since I have no experience with them can't comment but can say I'm happy with my chip, paid a good price, and scott also put my tip into sport mode while he was at it. Go with Upsolute and have Scott do it.

KTR in Ayer, MA is an APR shop IIRC.

A very good shop just like Shine, just bring your wallet :poke: :lol: (I've seen too many Progressive insurance ads apparently :weirdo: )

IIRC Brian's does HW only, I don't think they do on-site chipping.
