i was wondering if i get the giac chip with a turbo back exhaust, would i need to get it reburned if i get an upgraded turbo down the road?
i know the 03 cobra and 03 gti's are two totally different machines, but with the cobras everytime you get a new part that has a significant afect on the air/fuel you have to send in the chip to get new parameters put into it.
is this also the case with the gti's?
thank you

Re: reburning chip with new mods?? (r.shackelford)

Yes, to run properly an upgraded turbo would require different boost & fuel maps... This is directly controlled by the ECU. So you can't really take advantage of a bigger turbo unless you have a chip that is tuned for it.
