Re: K03 Maximum Boost??? (TexasVWdriver)

GIAC makes a 1.3 bar chip, but it's (ironically) only for the AWD engines and (I think) it's for use with 100 octane gas. Most chip tuners limit peak boost to 1.1 bar because after that, the K03 goes outside its efficiency range and you end up generating an unacceptable level of heat that can cause detonation.
