I have a 2001 1.8t GTI with an upsolute chip in it. Now for the past several months the turbo has been crapping out on me and going into limp mode when ever it feels like it. I have talk to upsolute and we still haven't found the problem. It has been to the dealership a couple times and all they keep on doing is replacing th DV.
Please if someone out the knows whats going on with my car please help!!!

Do you have access to a VAG tool and another chipped ECU, maybe off a friend's car?
After you hunt for boost leaks, trying another program may help too.

Re: Turbo is cutting out please help!!!!!!! (1.8TMadness)

its the enegines's way of protecting itself from harm if the turbo is not working properly. It basically shuts off the turbo and if your car is chipped and you hit the gas you'll know if the turbo is cut off. Because if its on my head is usually glue to my head rest when i floor it!
