MTM chip

here's my question about all these chips. isn't it
kind of like playing with fire by using generic chips?
every car is different, especially as they age. maf
voltage, fuel pump, injectors, every part ages
differently on every car, so to use a chip out of box
worries me a lot.

i guess i would feel a lot more comfortable if i could
have the chip custom burned to my car on a dyno. seems
like the only way to go. also, being the engine is
running such an oddly high compression ratio for a
boosted engine, 9.3:1, isn't a lot more boost kind of
dangerous in the long run? does anyone use dished
pistons when throwing bigger turbos on this car?

don't know, if i get this car, i think i'll just start
with full exhaust, downpipe, etc. can the intake be
improved, cold air intake for example?

how much power increase could i expect from a larger
down pipe and a cold air intake. just seems safer to
start off than to chip off the bat.

see ya,
