Year / Model Reviewed:
.8 and 1.0 bar
Reliability, increased gas milage, incresed power, ability to change the chips
Perhaps, I would prefer if the 1.0 bar chip was less aggressive at partial throttle, so that the turbo would not be working so hard....But this would decrease the torque consideraly.
I have used the Wett. chips for almost 3 years now. I had the 1.0 bar chip at first, and had no problems, except a check engine light that came on once. The company also sent me the .8 bar chip, that clearly makes less power, but is a big improvement over stock. When driving with the 1.0 bar chip, I noticed that the turbo would be glowing even when I was barely driving aggressively. I have read that 1.0 bar is really the upper limits of this turbo, and the factory upgrades to the kkk 04 turbo to push 1.0 bar. Both VW and Audi run .8 bar now with this turbo, so I feel it is just a safer level. I actually found myself driving less aggressively with the 1.0 bar, because I felt I was abusing the turbo. It is nice though to be able to switch back and forth between the 2 and stock. I have had absolutely no problems with .8 bar chip.
