Performance chips?

Some of you say there nothing other than something that jacks with your engine and that is completely useless.

With an intake headers and exhaust wouldn't a chip be likely required?

What chips out there work well with our is3's

Fill me in,

TIA

No, there really aren't any "CHIPS".

You need to look at Engine Management or Air Fuel Management.

Something like the Greddy Emanage
Greddy - Founded and Driven by Racers

or something like the

Apexi SAFC
Apexi SAFC Neo Piggyback Fuel Management Unit

Those items will use the extra air to your cars benefit.
Last time I had just an Exhaust and Intake, I installed a Apexi SAFC-II and had it dyno tuned. I gained 11RWHP.
