This has long been an issue with folks of B6/B7 S4. SO IF YOU HAVE ALREADY GIVEN A CHIP REVIEW GOOD OR BAD PLEASE CUT AND POST IT HERE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. ALSO OTHER MEMBERS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO POST PAST CHIP REVIEWS
Lots of good information that new members might have missed that have gone on in the past.
In the early days of the B6/B7 all of us were looking for any sign of support from the aftermarket. With the N/A 4.2 being such a tough nut to crack we didn't see much for a long time.
A little history
When we did the first thing to come out was as usual were exhaust. Oddly enough we were told how much power they gave us while still keeping the damaging Precats in. Come to only find out later. most Dp's with the Precats still in didn't do much power wise and actually over time seemed to do more damage then good.
Then cold air intakes, they looked real great with all the information showed from some of the manufactures. But still yet again when people really started looking it seemed once again this product wasn't living up to the claims. Some have actually seen a drop in power with the cold air intakes.
Then came the chips. This is where I was really excited. We all know a real well done chip can do more then just make power for your car. at a cost of almost 700$ for sum chips I decided I needed to gather as much information as I could.
I really needed to dig as there wasn't much REAL conclusive information.
My chip Review
The entire reason I needed to do all the tests and look at as many chips as I could was because there was so much conflicting information. The dyno sheets from the companys looked great and showed all kinds of power. Yet when members got the chips many of them said they couldn't tell a difference at all. Further more some members dynoed there chips and saw NO difference at all.
It has been a tough time in the B6/B7 S4 we keep looking for more and under some rocks you find great parts. Still under other rocks you find performance products that are nothing more then marketing hype
While I feel dyno's don't tell the entire story this thread is for members to post there reviews and chip choice to further help new members know more about the chips and the choice chips that have tested and shown to be legit.
