Re: Neuspeed Chips vs GIAC??? (Euro Flavor)

I never had one, but I think most of the complaints were geared torward fuel enrichment and timing. I think people were complaining that their cars ran too lean, which seems like it could have something to do with the timing. Usually, if you advance the timing on a car, it will run richer, and pull harder at higher RPM. Sounds to me like the GIAC chip simply advances the timing a bit more than the neuspeed one does. However, there could be many other factors involved...thats just a guess. You might want to try posting in the 12V VR6 forum to get a more clear answer - those guys know their stuff.

I don't know what it is about Neuspeed stuff, but from all of my friends experience, everything sucks from them except for like stability bars, and plug wires. All that a chip does is ignition timing, fuel curves, Rev limiter, and speed limiting manipulations. It is possible to over advance the timing to actualy give you less performance. I think that this is the possibility with the Neu stuff. I have talked to Collin at TT and he said that alot of their competitors software really just "Over Does" things, which will sacrifice the whole idea of chip tuning altogether. I would put my money on GIAC or TT anyday, and leave it to the companys who spend hours upon hours of dyno time to perfect their product.
