      Looks like power drops off early? I like the mid range but I want some top end too. Any chance you could dyno a VR w/ 268 cams and 268 chip?

      That dyno shows directly the diff between our PEM and GIAC on the same car, and that was the point of it. That actual car had a stock mk2 exhaust on it, as noted in the post, which obviously was restricting the power on the top end.

      And to all please let us know if you are running the MK4 head gasket before you order!

      does having the mk4 head gasket really make a big difference with the chip cause i recently bought a stage 2 chip for 262's online. i didn't know that i needed to inform you's about the head gasket still putting the car together so i have not installed the chip yet.

      I'm running the regular file on 93 octane with the mk4 head gasket and experiencing some pinging issues at low rpm especially when hot. This doesn't really surprise me but I figured I would try it out. Apparently Jeff has a modified file on hand with less timing aimed at the mk4 gasket mod.

      you might be ok with your current chip since the more lift/duration/overlap the cams have the more the static compression is lowered

      got the chip back with the high compression file on it, put a few hundred miles on it and it runs just as awesome as before but no ping whatsoever now!
      great customer service and tuning!

      So if we have the MK4 headgasket, you select high compression, correct?

      I have a 98 GLX with the VF stage II with 268 cams. Can you offer me something better then what VF/GIAC has? I'm tired of running pig rich and the CEL!!!

      Yes the PEM's will work in OBD2 Passats as well

      Any dyno runs of a VR6 stage 2 vs stock?

    23. 06-24-2009 11:57 AM #73
      As to get accurate numbers, that would involve swapping cams then and there on the dyno, we havent had that opurtunity. But on the first page there is a dyno comparison between our VR6 Cam file and a GIAC cam chip on the same car, the same daym, swapped on the dyno.

      Hi,
      I just ordered the PEM Stage 1 for my vr6
      WoW, my GLX seem to go nowhere but with this chip, my vr6 got a new breathe. The feeling is smoother, longer. Improve at every RPM, you can feel kick under 3k.
      Thanks you
      Bruno
