VW Passat tuning - Mikeym1
Hi there,

I would like some advice please. I own a 1999 VW Passat Turbo. The standard stock is 150 BHP.

Recently I bought a device on Ebay according to seller tricks the ECU which increases the air flow.

(I may have this info wrong). Has anyone fitted a similar device which worked for them?

Will this device cause damage to my engine or components?

I know most of you would suggest remapping the ECU, but I suppose this is the cheapest method

if it works.

I appreciate any information you may have.


Thanks.

Mike.

If you aren't able to get your money back, then throw it in the bin would be my advice.

If this cost less than a tenner its just a resister to trick the ecu into increasing the amount of fuel, put in down to experience and bin it.

If it's an L-shaped black plastic thing with a plug and socket, it's just a scam and should be reported to Trading Standards.
