  1. MKIV GTI
    Hi Guys, I have read in a lot of places that upgrading to a forge diverter valve is recommended when upping the power. I have approx 215 hp in my Mk 4 but still have the stock Bosch. What does upgrading to the forge do?

    So I know I've seen multiple threads on this topic, but I didn't see a lot of feedback about Revo. I know a guy who owns a performace shop and is an authorized Revo tuner, so pricewise I can get a deal on a Revo tune. I just want to get some feedback about Revo vs the competition.

  10. MKV GTI
    http://slrmotorsports.com/shop/l/Volkswagen-Golf-1990-2011-Performance-Chip.html this is advertised on this site so I decided I'd at least give it a look. What does everyone think? Does it work? It probably voids warranty. Opinions?
