Well it just so happens that I just got done with the first upgrade.
WOW!!!!! What a difference. What I ended up installing was a custom
chip with code developed by List members who are part of the QLCC
(Quattro List Chip Club). The code changes the engine controls to allow
1.95bar boost. With this chip and the addition of a WasteGate spring I
now have essentially the Intended Acceleration Stage 1 kit. Total cost:
about $100.00! I had a great deal of help from Graydon Stuckey, Scott
Justason, Paul Semerad, and Dave Lawson. The total cost included a new
Intercooler host from Graydon which was about half the total cost. I
helped him with his EPROM burner, and burning the code that Dave Lawson
provided. Graydon using Paul's shop was able to delder my ECU removing
the stock chip and adding a socket for easier future upgrades. Scott
provided the pre-upgrade inspection for the cost of an evenings
meal/drinks. So perhaps with incidental costs the upgrade was slightly
mode costly than a $100 but not much at all. It is definitly the best
first improvement using the Bang for Buck theory. Feel free to call me
if you have any specific questions. If you are intersted in the ECU
upgrade please be aware: there is no warranty/guarantee with the code or
the chip or any part of it. It worked great for me and other people, but
if your engine blows up, you are on your own. Just make sure that is out
in the open.

Fellow Audi fanatic,
I am very interested in this ECU upgrade, could you tell me how much I could
get this upgrade for and everything that I would need to do it.
