As long as you guys were on this topic....

I have a passat ('03) with a 1.8T. It's pretty nice, but, of course, I'd like a bit more...

It seems that you can get a fair amount just by chipping and a cat back?? What would be a reasonable gain with these mods?

On complaint I have with the stock set up is the throttle response -- it's lagging/ sleepy. Since this is a fly by wire set up, will a perfomance chip fix this. Last time I took it in for service, I aske them if they could reprogram the throttle to make it qicker/crisper. They didn't seem to be able to handle that.
