Re: add 10-15 hp to my '01 GTI VR6---cheap 'n easy??? (thevick)
so you don't want to do a chip but hacking off the stock exhaust and an aftermarket one on a car you're turning back in is easier? you won't void your warranty. try to find one post on this whole forum where someone had a catastrophic problem from a chip and it voided their warranty. you won't find any. your just changing your fuel mapping a bit with the chip, and ridding it of a govenor. it's no big deal as far as that goes, but it will make a real big difference in the way the car feels, an exhaust won't. and at the end of your warranty, unplug it and plug in the stock one and sell the aftermarket one in 'classified'. add an easily removable cold air intake and your golden.
