hey im probably going to buy a gti 2.0t in a couble months...ok well the guy who is selling me the car also races on tracks and he said that with the new gti you can upgrade how much boost you are putting in the car(sory if im saying it wrong...not sure) to like 16 or something with the stock turbo just by buying something called a diablo. he says you plug it in and it wiill not only tell you whats wrong with your car if a warning light comes on, but you are able to put up the boost to 15 psi or something WITH THE STOCK TURBO....he siad he has seen it done and he said it wont hurt the turbo or engine or anything , and nothing needs to be replaced....i mean he sells gti;s for a living so i fig he knows what he was talking about....anyone know?//?

chips are best way to go. they will give you atleast 18PSI. the stock turbo suposivly has a peak of 15PSI already anyways (stock turbo). they range in price from 500-600 basically.

the chip basically does remap yer ECU. with the APR chip you can purchase a device with it that lets you change into different modes with the push of a button
