I've got a k04 with k03 software. I ought to be getting in my GIAC k04 software within the next week. What should I expect, power wise and such? I'm not sure that a k04 on k03 programming is any difference, positively or negatively, compared to stock. Anyway, I'm getting pretty excited.

well just look at awe's site. chipped k03 = 200 something hp. k04 software w/ k04 = 230 something hp. so it probably feels like getting chipped again.

I noticed a big difference before the turbo blew up. I wouldn't run it hard on that software thats for sure.

i don't have a chipped car at all. it's STOCK k03 software on a k04.

oops, I guess i read it wrong. I saw Giac in your sig, and thought you were chipped :|. Since you're gonna go from stock k03 to k04 w/ software, you'll probably feel like getting double chipped lol. If you dunno what being chipped feels like, then just get in your k04 w/ software and divide the feeling by 2 and that'll be the feeling of driving a chipped k03. heh

You're going from 150 to 240 hp and nearly doubling the stock torque. Lets just say it will be a noticable improvement.

alright, so that gets me a bit more excited. at least i won't be so far behind my friends' stage 2 S4 stage 3 WRX and stage 2+ GTI haha.

Yeah, I jumped the gun and added GIAC to my sig once i paid for it haha
