    Default 206 GTI 180 AIC Motorsport Power Box chip

    Hi Guys,
    Just saw on eBay a AIC Motorsport Power Box chip (connects straight into existing connection) and was wondering if anyone had / has some experience with them as I don't know enough about it, if it might possibly damage the enginr in long run....should I stay away?however Seems like a cheaper way to increase some more power in the car?
    Would like your thoughts fellow 180's!

    All it can do, is trick the MAP sensor reading to the ECU. Seriously, it's of questionable benefit to most people.

    Have you replaced your brake flexi hoses on the car, or are they still original? Asking because a set of braided stainless sleeved PTFE brake hoses, might be similar cost but tangibly a better spend.

    Speaksgeek, I have question.. I'm replacing clutch next week and worship recommends velo. Would this brand be way to go? What's yours? I'm not doing any track racing etc..but at the end of the day want to make sure it's good buy. To do job cost is around 1300

    Yeah, valeo is a good stock option. I got a sachs clutch, which is a bit of an upgrade.
