Stock with a chip? 202 at the wheels wouldn't be too far off.HoldDaMayo said:how the hell did they manage to get 202hp at the wheels of a stock GTI... that's like 20HP too high.
Thanks Dragon, 1 more question, does my ecu need to be removed initally?Dragon said:Stock with a chip? 202 at the wheels wouldn't be too far off.HoldDaMayo said:how the hell did they manage to get 202hp at the wheels of a stock GTI... that's like 20HP too high.
To the other posters above:
You get your ECU flashed by a GIAC dealer, the flash loader is a device that allows you to switch between programs.
Revo has a similar device for the MkV, but it still requires a software (flash) upgrade to the ECU.
Similar to the model below;
^^^ That's an SPS2- you need an SPS select or a SelectPlus. The plus model allows you to make three of your own custom maps.
IIRC Both the GIAC and Revo also have "kill" features, which allow you to disable the ECU so NO ONE can start your car.
I posted my dyno results in my own thread here. The problem is that I had to reset the ecu 1 week prior to getting it dyno'd because one of my silicone hoses from the FMIC came loose. Currently, all companies that make flashes have a shortcoming when it comes to this (resetting the ecu, that is). It flips the program into "vallet" mode = stock settings (the program is still there, but the settings are stock). The only way to get the settings back is if you have a flashloader (which I just bought), or take it to the shop to have the settings put back on.WaZzAp1101 said:Any dyno results yet?
The flashloader hold the programs for you so you can swich after you've been remapped.You can get valet,race pump,stock modes.GranTurismoInjection said:Wait, so I would have to get my GTI chipped first, then use that? Doh, that's not what I was looking for... I wanted a plug n' play, though I guess it will be a while before that comes around.
