I am debating getting one of these. They get good feedback on their Facebook page. I don't know if the clutch and gearbox will handle the extra power though.

I've no information regarding that tuning box and don't know how it works however in my experience additional tuning boxes are never as good as a remapped ECU.

As for the clutch and gearbox does the 1.4T use the same parts as the 1.6T?

If so then they should be fine.

No idea if it uses the same parts. TDI get great reviews across forums and Facebook.

Chip boxes are bad for the engine and should be avoided like plague.

Good to ruin the engine. Chip boxes just fake sensor data but are not as safe as a professional remap.
