@ narry,
can you share some more info/ compare about the Octy you have there and the Laura here, like pricing, package, warranty, spares & service.
just to know the policy difference Skodas/VW have for different countries.
also, how's the upgraded performance ?

That chip has a retail price of 1300 euros. Narry, do you know what the street price is ? How has the performance actually increased by the figures reported?

Isn't it too expensive ??
@imp, if you are interested, then why not what's availaible here !!
but, would suggest not to upgrade, at least for sake of warranty.

Please enlighten me with your default cruizing speed and also please tell me what kmph does a swift vdi do in 5th gear @1900rpm.

I for one, somedays, when I am a bit gloomy, cruize at 60kmph and on the days when I am all cheered up I have gone on drives where I have kept a constant 120kmph!! So what would you classify as my cruizing speed to be!! IMO it is upto the driver to decide at what speeds he wants to cruize!

Please do let me know if there is a default speed which one has to do to be categorically called as "cruizing" !!

Cheers
Shrey

and i think let me know as you as saying @ swift vdi , that what speeds are you getting below boost rpm and really are those cruzing speeds?
do you have a vdi as u r mentioning ? if yes let me know what you achive in this range . pls

@ Ganesh

There is no ways on Gods Green Earth, I'd shell out that much cash for a performance chip, no matter how tempting. The engine is insane to begin with, and, it has a penchant for petrol when driven hard, so any chip, even if it is cheap, will pretty much burn a blast door in my wallet :-)

Default Misconceptions about Turbo's

Even though the thread is for 1.8 Tsi related, there are some misconception regarding the FE factor affected by Turbo charging the engine, so i thought of mentioning few sentences from ACI issue Nov 09, pg. 90,91. regarding test of Cruze/Laura/Jetta.
It's just in favour of TURBO's and its advantages. I hope no one would take it personal.

"With low boost turbochargers, the Pump-Duse (PD) engines have a little lag which gives them good DRIVEABILITY. The strong midrange and snappy gearshifts make both the Laura and Jetta easy to drive in the city but it's Skoda which is more tractable of the two.
The Cruze has a whopping 44 bhp advantage but it's not ommedietly apparent as the Captiva-derived 2.0 litre common-rail diesal has quite a bit of Turbo lag. But, once on boost, it'll gallop to the 100kph mark a whole 2.2sec quicker then Laura. but, a look at the in-gear times will tell you what it's like in the REAL WORLD - 20-80kph takes a yawning 14.54sec in comparison to the Laura's 10.5 sec and Jettas 11.9 sec.
The TURBO LAG is annoying and the engine is virtually asleep below 1800rpm and makes you downshift a lot more than you want to."

Turbo's are our friends, so i am, pls. take it positively.

Thanx for the Info, narry !
though we would like to know on availaibility of spares, and service people's attitude.
@fellow BHpien's, i think its easy and reasonable cost to have an maintain Skoda's there.
What say ??

hi
well i buy this at 750 euro
with delivery in hongkong since my freind work in austria he get good discount
regarding performace
the stock is 160 bhp i get now 200bhp
torque is 250nm now i get 290nm
the reason i went for this tuning box is simple
i will explain u here why
a remap is normal avaible from 300 euro to 600 euro in china they charge 600 euro
but problems in the remap this that they make more power from low range rpm to higher range rmp until 7000 rpm and i see with many cars in china because of this remap the engine temperature drastically increases , after this the tunner said u put a oil cooler or change to a bigger radiator both can cost more than 200 to 400 euro so u end up paying more also can damage your engine , also i spend money on a remap i sell my car i get nothing or if i did not want more power he wont adjust anything just take my money , but with tuning box i have more options.
i told the tunner i needed more power in the lower end only this was my requirment
nobody could even understand what i needed
so i buy this steinbauer tuning box because my freind in europe said it the best company
well with this box turbo start spooling at 1300 rpm before factory was 1800 rpm
so i get driving pleasure at lower end
after some speed above 120kilometer
the box shut itself and i am on stock ecu
this feature i like most
so when ever i press the gas pedal and the box come into action so i can get power as i want
in this matter the i can get power and fuel economy both
regards

hi
u must understand vw was the first company to set up a factory in china in mid 1980 when china economy open 80% of taxi which run in china are vw or old audi a100
so service and spare availability is good
also cost a quite low i think compared to india
most important they have service centres all over china so u would not get stranded in middle of highway if u car break downs

if you need more input on FE of 1.8 TSI, here it is. I test drove it after seeing the ACI figures. But the dealer was totally honest and told me that the FE of the TSI is on par with the RS. with a light foot you may be able to extract 12 kmpl on highways and 9 in the city. Overall 9.5-10, according to the dealer. oh yes, he also commented that no one who owns a 1.8 TSI really cares about the FE! for them, the 1.9 is perfect according to him. makes sense to me too.
