    Arr ok no worries, then yeah will make a difference.

    I had that engine few years ago, Mk4 GTI non turbo... 125BHP aren't they? I superchipped it and put a carbonio on it... got it to about 148bhp Good fun while I was building my no claims...

    ye 125bhp. i was thinking of getting it mapped but it wasnt worth the cost for 5 bhp or whatever it would of given me.

    how much was it to be chipped?

    this may sound a stupid question, but what differences will i get with the short shift? i dont really know a great deal about cars etc

    thanks

    Yeah it cost me about 250 + VAT to be chipped and your right I only gained about 7bhp and some torque which was what i was more interested. Looking back I def wouldn't of done it as I was expecting more and I could hardly notice it if im honest... Only slightly, just felt it was reving a bit more freeier but that's it...

    With the short shift it'll be a smaller throw to change gear which will make a difference when you need to change gear quickly... I'd rate that much more over chipping it, will let you change gear quicker which really will make a difference.
