Minhea did a group purchase last year with several of us.
AFAIK:  In the first batch, when Minhea ran out of chips, he used a 
"compatible" chip which when was installed, didn't work.  We got replacements and they 
Specifically, the chip media was the issue.

With the  2.5 bar transducer and 280HP chip I noticed a flat spot / pause 
around 4500RPM (from memory).  Minhea sent another map to us (~278HP) and the 
flat spot was gone.  I kept the flat spot chip since I've driven like 2,000 miles 
since the ECU upgrade.

Remember, this is a: disassemble the ECU and solder in a chip.  We have 
EXTENSIVE photos on how Peter did this.

For ~$250 I'd buy another for the Avant.
It works.......and the car flies.  Its unreal, except you need to check all 
the vacuum hoses and sensors to achieve full boost and potential of the chip.

Ned ("Q") at intendedacceleration.com 
and Scott Mockery's web site (MTM or other chip maker Lehmann?) are other 
options too.
For the price Minhea's my guy.
