Racechip vs. ECU Tune

Does anyone here have racechip installed in their panamera? I'm debating on whether I want to get it for my turbo. Overall it's a bit cheaper than an ECU tune, plus it comes with a 2 year warranty. I've never had any experience with chip tuning so I'm not sure if there's a huge difference.

Racechip started to put my Audi 4.0TT engine in limp mode after 3 weeks of operation. I returned it at a loss. If you have a tune option that one is always the best vs cheap piggy back.

I'm located in Central Illinois. I just can't decide what tune to get.

Since you are not in Ca. I can not send you to my guy, I would go with GIAC, or Vivid after that. Vivid has a great price, they own a Panamera turbo and have pretty good Dyno Results. I found the guy I used through a local speed shop reference and after talking with him, It was a no brainer, He wrote most good programs that are being used out there and he knows how a lot of others are doing it and its not necessarily a good way.
Go with Vivid because they can send you the tool to do it yourself through the obdII port. Hope this helps Thanks
