I had the exact same concern after I chipped my '99. The tech told me that it was just the anti-corosive chemical burning off from the cat, due to the hotter turbo and was no big deal. After a few months, everything was fine and there was no more smell...

I notice a burning smell, not the kind of burning plastic, in cabin everytime after I boost my chipped 1.8T for a period.

Boost pressure is normal and Climatronic is in recirculation mode.


:???: :???:
Try describing the smell?

Terence only - I get the idea u mean it smells "lor lor dei", but what kind of "lor"?
