A - A new MTM chipped ECU (I'll use my original ECU as a spare)
B - MTM chip only, I'll provide a socketed ECU
I think I told you this at lunch, a guy on Audiworld has a 2001 1.8T APR chipped ECU (CH) for $900. I'm debating on his ECU then try both MTM and APR, selling the one that is slower than Christian's car :), or if MTMs chipped ECU (option A) is a REALLY good deal (haha, better than $900 anyway) I'll skip the APR stuff for now and go with MTM.

The only way I can get them is either as new ecu or installed. They like to seal the ECU for warranty reasons.
I will have price on Monday on complete ECU

I checked my ECU this afternoon, its a 'CH'. I just read an interesting article that mentioned MTMs involvement with Audi AG. Sounds like the MTM guys know what they're talking about! I can't wait!

and on that note - Drove by, actually stopped, Classic last night. Whats the deal on the Silver 01 S4? Is Classic selling that at sticker or could they work on a deal for me (****, they have four sitting there!). Chips is good, S4 is better!

The best I can do on a new ECU and mod chip is $1000. You did say you had a ch right? The ECU itself costs over $600. . To mod your ECU is $510. regular price is $595 if that helps. Let me know

to get the new chipped CH (checked this weekend, its a CH) ECU? I definately want to go that route. Let me know how when etc, do I need to bring the 'G' in small unmarked bills, that sort of crap. I also have an 'N' Bosch BPV that needs installed so figure that in as well (I couldn't get the damn hoses off the mother f'er, so its sitting on my bench).

I will order today, Shall we do the 5 k next week? P.S. You can return The "n" valve if you want, I can warranty the valve and then it won't cost you. Small bills are not nessesary,But nice, I can take a check.

Most of them vary between 195-210hp and 235-245 ft. lbs torq. Not big differences in the numbers but differences in power deliver. Someone on S4 forum posted his own personal views of all the major chips (MTM, APR, GIAC, Wett, and 1 other), but that doesn't necessarilly help me. I know the MTM stuff is good but I'd like to know how power delivery differs to APR and GIAC.. Sinc I'm not looking to chip till february, I think GIAC may have their IBE chip avail then, and it would be nice to evaluate all of them and see how power delivery differs.

It might be me but GIAC runs great under low loads but 3 people in the car and it slows way down
Apr runs good but definite power curves
MTM smooth and strong .
