I got confused recently after a post about a 1.8T

If your B5+ is automatic, but also has a manual +/- shifter at the bottom is that what makes it a Tiptronic?

Also, with a 2001 1.8T if you were to buy the GIAC chip adding 40 HP as well as the K04 Turbo Kit (both from www.awetuning.com) what would be the final stats in terms of HP, Torque etc

Thanks for the help everyone! :D]

EDIT: Forgot to ask, the general advantages/disadvantages of Tiptronic?

Most K04 kits come with a chip also. Like the Neuspeed K04 kit comes with the Neuspeed P-chip, etc. IIIRC after a K04 kit you should be around 200-230 depending on weather you have a B5 or a B5.5.
As far as the advantages and disadvantages of tiptronic, you get a fake manual shifting "feel" :lol: It is slow to shift (but a GIAC Tip Chip can help that). Pretty much the same disadvantages and advantages of an automatic on any car, except you get to shift when you want if you want to.
