are all the chips relitivley the same or are there differences? i know the giac seems to be popular but what about apr and neuspeed? what has the most gains and what is the biggest waste of money?

giac more aggressive slightly bigger gains apr is known for the smooth power curve and being able to use the cruise control to swap modes on the fly. nuespeed is a waste of money... unless its the neuspeed prototye chip.. I heard good things about it... I would say search it because its been covered a million times but since these fourms crashed i dunno search audiworld

Depends if you want to upgrade to a KO4 later down the road or no.

If you plan on staying with the K03 I would suggest Dahlback. Since you in New Jersey visit Danny @ KMD Tuning. Pm me if you need the number.

If you want to go K04 you might as well get Giac cuz you can upgrade the chip to a K04 one for about $200 if I'm not mistaken.

Dahlback doesn't make software for a regular K04 only their custom K04.

When I joined this forum there was thousands of good posts to search, that hasn't changed at all.

Some of the best info on here is the posts from 2004 from those old crusty tuners. [:p]

doesn't make a difference. not that different of a turbo. being dbc, you should just spend 400 on giac and call it a day.
