View Full Version : GIAC ECU and Chip matching?

01-10-2005, 02:20 PM
Hey lads/ladies,

Was wondering how ECU and chip matching works for a non-DBW B5. Here's the question. I want to get a used GIAC chip but does the chip need to be made specifically for my ECU (i.e. 557 P)?
Are these chips transferable to any non-DBW B5 A4 or does it have to match ECU codes?

Thanks in advance,

They are transferable between 1996 to 1999.5 non-DBW cars. Auto vs manual has to be coded with VAG if they are different. Quattro vs FWD does not matter (it is all mechanical)
