well my buddy is goin VR and hes got a giac chip..
its a standard chip, not mapped to anything special i dont beleive
my mods include 1.8 p&p decked head with a 50mm intake on the way...
will the chip make a difference?? i mean i used to beleive cone filters made cars faster but now im skeptical about everything

and yes cams will be on their way, so would i want to wait and have a chip mapped to whichever cams i get? (not sure yet)
thanks in advance! and merry christmas http://****************.com/smile/emgift.gif

Re: Whats you opinion on Giac chips?? (A2 16v Gli)

i have one of these. It doesnt seem to make a huge difference sometimes but it does help. For instance in my passat 5 speed(2.016v) going up a steep hill the shift from 1st to 2nd sucked. major lag in second at 3-3.5k. The chip made a nice difference, besides that the high end seems to pull better all the way to the new 7200 redline. Nice drivability improvements.
If you decide to get one i think u can get it remapped for free when u decide to get cams to match that intake

I'd get the cams and chip together that way you dont have to pay extra to have the chip re-mapped for the cams. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
