Two thumbs up for g-werke.com. You may want to call them first... there have been some issues with rev levels of the factory VW software not allowing the Revo upgrade- they have a work around. Call and ask for Sara or Kato.drkside said:Looking for a good performance shop for my GTI. Any one know about a place called GRIFFIN MOTORWERKE? Trying to get my GTI chipped.
I'm very happy with the REVO... (had the cat back exhaust and K&N done by them too.)drkside said:Thanks for the help! Would you suggest going with the Revo? Sarah told me they also have OCT, Giac, or Neuspeed chips. She suggested the Revo based on a co-workers experience with his GTI. So many choices....
According to some dealerships, looking at the car funny voids the warranty. There are a few dealerships that are "mod" friendly (Boardwalk in RWC and Sonnen in Marin- I've yet to deal with Dirito yet on a mod issue.)drkside said:2007 with 500 miles on it. Picked it up at the end of last month and love it. Traded my Porsche Boxster in for it and like it a lot better than the Porsche.
I am thinking about adding Neuspeed intake to the car as well as the chip, as long as it does not void the warranty.
There is a long thread on that on here... I'm not even sure what I'm gonna do yet and trying to figure out if I should get it done the same time I do the intake.drkside said:I bought mine at Boardwalk, so I guess I should be good to go. My salesman is roommates with one of the service guys are they are total gear heads.
What should I upgrade my diverter valve to?
I agree on it being confusing (DV vs BlowOff), what I gained from the thread is that it is not a "if, but when" situation.drkside said:I read the thread and now I am even more confused. Seems you make one mod and it snowballs into 3 or 4 more. I want to do the chip, but that thread makes it sound like everyone that does blows their stock DV.
