Read bad reviews on chips before Titchy. Especially in our super sensitive vw electric systems.
Personally I’d steer clear and have a trusted map put on :-)

Yeah defo worth paying the extra for a “reputable” map. I know those chips are supposed to lie to the ecu etc, so who knows what it’s telling it to do. Like you said Titch.. R-tech map served you good in 8 years.

Aaaah, Race Sh1ts.

I was also going to link in that Darkside Developments video but GVK beat me to it.  The Parkins know their onions.  They're good with petrol VAGs as well.

Manipulating injector/temp/maf/boost sensor signals is an absolute bodge.  Steer well clear of plug-in boxes.  Factory ECUs are more than capable of delivering the goods and who wants an extra box cable tied to their dash anyway?

The plug-in boxes are popular with leased cars because they don't flag TD1 warranty void codes, or leave any diagnostic breadcrumb trails, but people who know a bit more about mapping steer well clear of them  :happy2:
