      Not one person has ever posted that it doesn't work. Improved throttle response.

      Techtonics sells chips for Digifant. And I'd trust them first.

      A local tuning shop. They had all the data. I just modified it a bit for my specific mods. Then they let me burn it.

      Yeh but this is what a Digifast chip looks like.

      Unless for some reason he changed the name or something. I think that dude is Black_Cabbie here on Vortex.

      I'm sure they are too. Just don't want somebody to get something they didn;t expect.

      I'm fairly certain that the digifast chip does not touch timing.

      Mine does. Not sure about those ones people sell but mine advances up to 40*.

      The chip works. The throttle response is probably the most notable change.

      awesome chip i loved it when i had an 8v

    26. 02-28-2007 01:44 PM #26
      huh....I always thought this chip was just a waste of money but i never did any research

    27. 02-28-2007 01:49 PM #27
      i got one not too long ago for a customer car, and the throttle response is great, that alone was worth the purchase price to me. idle isn't jumpy anymore, etc.

    28. 04-11-2007 10:36 PM #28
      anyone know how it would work in a 16v digi 2?

      Will this chip work on an 8V with a mild P and P and a mild cam? Will it affect it in a bad way or will it just give me more gains?

      i'm not sure but i would say yes. the chip eliminates the hesitation from a stop and does something w/ the fuel so when you take your foot off the gas it uses less fuel somehow ( if i read the instructions right. also like someone posted it readjusts the fuel curve and gives some extra horses.

      i have one in mine....just does the same thing as everybody else states...throttle response..yadda yadda yadda.


    34. 04-12-2007 12:23 AM #34
      Installed mine from VW_Pilot a few weeks ago. Like everyone says, it works perfect and dead simple to install.

      Hesitation gone; much smoother acceleration (from this is feels faster), better throttle response; idle feels a bit better too.

      dang
      and it's like $40-50?

      ****, I might have to make this my first 'upgrade'

      and it doesn't advance timing or make fuel maps so aggressive that you require high octane gas? one of the reasons I bought this car was so that I could go back to 'cheap gas'
