AWD, is there much of a difference in the t5's performance with the chip?

There is a difference, but nothing that will make you or your passengers go WOW! I have only sensed the upgrade on an awd, with its huge drivetrain loss, so I am sure it feels like a larger leap on the fwd.

If I had to do it over again I would go BSR. I had a problem with the dealer installing a new ecm due to a problem, my ecm had to be mailed back to evolve again and they had to reflash it. More down time...

One of the best gauges I've gotten from a speed stand point , Was racing a Manual Boxter S .....It was Dead even ...And my car is an auto , and I was also carrying a passenger....

I believe the Boxster S runs mid to low 13's, so I would chalk this up to a bad driver because your chipped s40 isnt even close to this especially with an auto with a passenger. Are you sure he was racing you??

Thanks for the permission to believe what I want to, I was just stating an obvious point. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Well my dad has a dealer trying to find me a black T5 FWD 6spd w/ t-tec, sports package w/ 17" sagitta, audio package and bi-xenons. They say that the bi-xenon lights are the only problem because its a stand alone option and not many come like that. :-(

whateveryou do, make sure you get the bi-xenon. best option available imo
