i own a 02 GTi and so far i have a pflow intake and an autotech shortshifter. my birthday is coming up
in a couple weeks and i want to get something to give more power. i was considering a boost controller
from split second or freedom designs but that will only add about 10-15hp because the boost is already turned up
slightly by the factory(compared to last years car w/150hp). it just doesn't seem like a chip or boost controller would help that much considering i already have 180 hp stock. i can't afford a ko4 so forget that idea. does anyone have
any suggestions?

Re: i need more power, help! (trev'sGTI)

I would wait for a chip, should still be a pretty big diff. most aww's are around 180-190whp and about 210-220lb.ft.
how bout a 2.5" or 3" exhaust?

If you get genorous gifts a Forced Motion 3 inch turbo back will do you nice, throw in a APR or Garret chip and you will be flying. Ditch the P flow for an Evo CAI. Just my .02 cents
