I am about to purchase a Gt2871r Eliminator turbo for sale in the classifieds that comes with 550cc injectors and Mika software. I did some research on the turbo, and software just to see what I'm getting into, So I'm not totally clueless ha ha.

Anyways currently I have pc16 software, was running a k04 before it messed up. Will the gt2871 elim with the Mika software give me a noticeable performance increase compared to the k04 setup I had... Because I've been reading tons and came across a shit load of threads were people are saying Mika software is shit, go with Unitronics....?

Need opinions before I for sure buy this and get into something I will regret. It basically comes down to buy another k04 or go with the GT2871 Eliminator. [confused] What do you guys think.

Apples and Oranges. Like any off-the shelf software it wont be perfect. You'll have to tweak it in yourself, but overall I've heard mixed reviews. Never used unitronics, but again same thing it's an off the shelf tune, be prepared to do some tweaking.

with the 2871 and a good tune you should see a solid 80-100hp more than your k04 setup

another option is Inmotion USA.
I got a custom tune done on my car. But again it's not going to be off the shelf for anything. You'll need to tweak it with lemmiwinks.

start with a vag-com.. learn that first then, lemminwinks will be much easier
