yes the mk5 is the new 2.0T version... and there are levels to the chips... I think your friend got a cheap one... I've seen them put over 300whp to the ground with the more expensive ones. They stop the ecu from restricting boost - the speed3 and speed6 are the same way... the ecu controls the boost to have a perfectly flat tq curve for somehting like 2500 -6000 rpms.

They get fast quick... but They are a little piggy tooo... lol..
