1.8t's have some sick chips out there though, like so good they sound like ebay chips. the turbo is soooo de-tuned because they are kind of a mom car. one of my buddies from school has one though and it hauls ass. some of the legit chips claim 190hp at the wheels.

no not an actual ebay chip. it means it sounds too good to be true. like the apr chip, claims to add 50whp and 50lb-ft just by tweaking the weak-ass stock tune for the turbo.
