: Advice on Performance Chips

Just bought an Audi A4 Quattro Avant and am considering a performance chip.

I have read some of them don't work and will actually turn your check engine light on. So I appreciate your Advice.

The Volo chip is on Amazon for $90. Volo claims not to change the rev or speed limiters.

Another review says 'real Performance Computers', like JET, HYPERTECH, SUPERCHIPS, and factory-brand performance computers, will do what they claim and give your engine more horsepower and torque. These computers work just like your factory ECU, but they are pre-programmed to advance your vehicle's timing, raise the engines over-rev limiter, fuel injector opening and closing timing, and raise or eliminate your vehicles top-speed limiter.

Thank you.

Imo the chips only work if you have the whole package of performance parts and then its minor improvements. the whole performance package to me is the cams, exhaust, headers, and fuel adjustments. + any other type of work that increases HP.
