One piece of advice, stay away from Superchips! They don't know anything 
about programming a Motronic ECU, they just raise security maps, increase 
the fuelling to over 20% over stock mixture and alter boost by means of a 
stiffer wastegate spring because finding the maps in the boost chip has to 
be too complicated for their highly skilled, top-notch (ahem) engineers.
