    Hello Everyone!

    Trying to get some feedback from some of you that have done the chip...

    I just got done doing the TB, WP, HB & cleaning the intake. My exhaust is free flowing gutted cat with performance turbo muffler, the siutcase is gone. My turbo spools up nicely and the difference after cleaning the intake is measurable in the seat of my pants especially at 3K + rpms.

    So I ask ya all, I drive 450 miles weekly, my main objective is MPG, chip or not?

    TIA

    My mpg went down after chip and nozzles but in theory the car should run more efficiently. If you find yourself using the power = more fuel use!
