today i went to my local Upsolute distributor and i got my 1.8T Golf chipped. its as good as everyone says it is.. chipped 1.8T's in the Golf is awesome. he said i should be hovering between 190-195 horsepower. for anyone who has a 1.8T and hasn't been chipped, take the plunge and do it. i can't recomend it enough.
