I have a completely stock 2007 GTI. My question is, what chip would be best for me considering that i will not be getting any other mods (intake, exhaust...) until i can rebuild my funds? [help]
The carbonio looks great, but there is very little in performnce gains. The PFlow w/ the race extension is probably the best, followed by the EVOMS intake.WaZzAp1101 said:ill be using the chip program with a stock car for maybe a couple months, then ill go to a cold air intake, and later an exhaust system. I read somewhere the stock MKV exhaust system is pretty good, so im not in a rush to upgrade that, but i do want an intake. I was think about carbonio intake for the MKV, or the P-FLO (Feel free to give me ur opinion of the intake choice ;D). Unfortunately, i gotta rebuild my funds, nd i go full time to college so im puttin down the study time during the week, nd working a little on the weekend. I already bought the NewSouth Performance MKV TurboPod Bundle from www.momentumtuning.com, i figure that would be pretty useful to see how much boost im running with the chip.
Didn't seem to loose any torque, but I also switched to the vented fogs and a BMC filter at the same time.banditscout said:I don't know about that Dragon...I had a P-flow, (albeit standard, w/o the race extension) on my first MK V...I hated it and the loss of TQ. I put my stocker back on, then when I got the FH I went to the Carbonio and love it. No real loss in TQ, just gains in the upper end. The motor doesn't want to putter out around 6k, and just keeps pulling. Just my 2 cents since I've been on both sides of the fence. The P-flow sounds better though, the DV really comes through. Just beware of the TQ loss you're GOING to experience.
Honestly, I can't say. Really, you'd need to take the same car and dyno with both intakes to get a real answer.WaZzAp1101 said:Dragon, you are way more skilled than me when it comes to the VW engine. The carbonio seems to be a little easier option for me. Is there a big power difference with the P-Flow and the Carbonio?
