    iirc standard boost is 7psi. Mine is chipped and peaks and holds 10-12psi for 181bhp and a top speed of *70mph* on the speedo then it seems to hit a wall.

    The book indicates a top speed of 135mph for a stock 1.8T FWD.

    The speedo does overread though, so an indicated 140-145 seems about right.

    I'd say your boost figures sound standard.

    If it's a 96 AEB and it has been remapped then it'll have had a physical chip change as you can't remap them through the obd port.

    This is my chipped ecu. You can see the large chip rased on a 'piggy back' at the bottom of the board, On a standard ecu there is just a small chip soldered to the board itself. My ecu was like this when I bought the car and there is nothing to indicate who's chip it is. I don't know if there is a way to find out because I'd be interested too!

    No you won't need to set it back up but you will have to remove it from the car because it is inside a metal case. There's only 2 plugs connect it to the car. Just ull the tabs on the side of the plugs and they pull out. 4 Torx screws secure the board in the case but can't remember the size sorry

    The 96 square ecu has 5 small coloured plugs.
