Unfortunately, I have never felt that feeling yet. I have always had boost issues, hopefully I can solve mine really soon!

Congratulations. The 1.0 bar chip is by far one of the best mods/ mod feeling one can get with these A4s. IMO

another quick question, what should maf readings be at idle on a chipped car, i was going to check my maf before chipping but never had the chance, thanks.

I think MAF reading will be the same but I could be wrong. MAF readings at maximum acceleration will be higher.

If you have a VAG that's awesome. According to Ross-Tech, your highest MAF reading from a full WOT run from low RPMs to redline will represent approximatly .8 of your crank HP. Ross-Tech says to take this with a "grain of salt" though. I'm sure you can understand why.

So if you're chip rates you at 200hp you should get a MAF reading of 160 g/s.
