As I understand it the GTI's and the MKV's come under tuned from the factory. The chip actually increases the boost as well as advancing the timing, (alot more effective than what the programming can do on most stock cars) and that this is why such a huge jump.
I'd totally buy one if I didn't feel like I was buying an overpriced european car, but much love to them and grats OP!
