I hit and hold 15 psi with my '99 nDBW giac. The Giac X chips hold around 17 psi IIRC.

Das General

hmmm i was under the impression that they were boosting more...somewhere in the low 20's

and giac x is for k03's as well

ndbw = non drive by wire (throttle cable)

Das General

i think 16 tapering down to 12-10 around 5-5.5k is where you want to be.

Das General

ya i believe the giac x is the program you need.

ecu part number is also 8D0907557P

the giac x chip is a 1.3 bar chip, which is right around 18-20psi! the awe site sells the giac x chip.

a boost guage safe? yeah.. its one of the first things you should get

speedydragon

boost guage is useless imo, unless you sense a boost leak. get the chip, and 710n dv, then if you want get the guage

wow, a boost guage is useless unless you 'sense' a leak. hah, thats a laugh. You would never want to know exactly how much your boosting and how its holding.

I think that AWE sells the non-Xchip. They will specify ko3 or 4, so im sure if you make sure and order it for the ko3 you wont have any issues. ko4 files are specific and they will specify when you order.

the x chip does not exist for 97 - 99.5, and im pretty damn sure they dont make it for the 2000 either.

i hit 23 psi and hold 18 to redline with my giac chip (with some help)

oh, and a boost gauge is pretty much a must for any turbo car, i dont understand why they dont have one from the factory..

intake, mbc, cranked wastegate, exhaust, forge 006p, diode, its really bad for the turbo.

the awe chip for a 99 is 1 bar so its at 14.7psi and if you get an n75 race valve you can push about 16-17psi and it will taper to about 10-12psi by redline. also GIAC X is only for DBW cars

i dont mean to be a dick but in 1999 his car wouldnt be produced for anouther 2 years considering its a 2001. This also means he has the K03S which would put out different numbers then the <1999

So GIAC gives higher PSI levels than APR?

maxspeed
07-07-2007, 08:36 AM
giac is generally more aggressive than APR

that makes no sense how could you have a leak and make 20psi? [confused]

spiking at 20 is normal there no need to worry
