View Full Version : So, can someone clear up this GIAC X chip thing for me?

I have yet to run any caps times with my new GIAC X, but I don't think it is even close to what a K04 would be running... Supposedly from what I hear the GIAC X gets you close to K04 since the K03S has close flow to the K04 correct? So then why would I be holding 18psi and make the same as a K04 that would be boosting 20-22? I am not getting something here or my GIAC X isn't making the most of what it could?!

Oh yeah!! We are finally getting an AWD dyno comming in May! Two runs for $50 for the grand opening!! Any ideas on what I should do for my two runs? I will be running a ATP 3" TP, K&N, Borla downpipe/catback, GIAC X and EVOMS DV. Anyone know what I should be making to the ground?

They are comparing a Xchip K03 at 18-20psi vs a K04 at 1 bar of boost not 20-22psi. The K04 chip for the 2001(hammer file) from GIAC will make way more power then a Xchip, both run at the same boost level.

Well, no shit huh?! Everyone made it sound like the K03 would make just as much... What the fuck was the point of that then? I am sure a GT2871R would make as much power at 3 psi as a K03 would at 13?! What the hell is the point of saying something like that then? Just to confuse people?

Thanks for the clearup mike!!

I think the point a lot of were trying to make was that a K04 will make more power than a K03s on a 01....but not enough of a difference to be worth spending the money for a small amount of gain.
But again things have changed now that the hammer file is out...it sounds like it might be worth it with the new setup.

Right... I've never heard the K03 would generate as much power as the K04, just that it's not really worth the upgrade on the 01's.
