I'm far from a noob if you look at my join date and post count, but my questions are noobish since its bee so long since I've posted.

I had a 2003 B5.5 Passat with the 1.8T engine. I had a GIAC chip installed in it which gave a pretty good bump in power.

Question, can I do the same today? Are chips still commonly Installed? Any big issues with the dealerships?

Oh, and I thought the Passat switched to the 2.0T? Did they then go back to the 1.8T?

Welcome back. Now most "chipped" cars are actually flashed through the OBD port. The Passat went to a 2.0T in 2006 and the new 1.8T just came out in the last year or so.
