    So no warranty void or anything? Nothing where they can tell I've been using it?

    Correct. Because it's a piggyback, it's undetectable. All it's doing is sending the same signals to the ECU that it's already getting, just adjusted to make it think that the boost is lower than it really is. As long as you don't have it permanently strapped to the engine compartment somewhere that you can't remove it easily. LOL

    Thanks for the info. Don't think I want to completely take the risk for now so I think I'll hold off. That 10/100k is really nice :P

    Im too poor to have gotten the gt :( need to do more research on this chip but can it be used in the 2.0T?

    Two seconds of research I answered my own question. Has anyone used it on the 2.0?

    I don't have a Stinger yet. And I didn't vote because, depending on the situation, I'd be going through all the modes. If I commuted I'd be using Eco mode. General driving comfort mode obviously for comfort but also to take it easy on the structure to keep squeeks and rattles to a minimum. Sport mode for back roads or the track. And what do I do with smart mode??? :)
