Steve, it seems like most of the issues I saw were with the 1.8T cars -
both because most people perceive them as underpowered and there are a
variety of performance mods (including chips) available for them. Does not
seem like there are a lot of engine enhancements for the 3.0 V6. But it
also has 50 hp more, so... While not against chipping myself, I think you
have to be prepared to pay the piper if something goes wrong...
