Default RaceChip installed on my GTS

Received my GTS RaceChip today from RPS. It took me all of 20 minutes to open hood, lock car, open up casing, set dial at 7, hook up the wiring, and install the box underneath the left side plastic cover. I had done this install last month on my Macan Turbo so I knew where I'd want to set the box. Everything went smoothly and it was time to go for a test drive. Immediately apparent was the lack of turbo lag, or less of it. Throttle response was a lot quicker, power gain was comparable to my Macan Turbo with no mod. I didn't have time to go for a lengthy test drive, just enough time to make sure the install was OK and I was home again. Pictures of the install follows

Sounds like RaceChip also works like the Sprint Booster.

It's much more than that. Not only throttle response is faster, but the boost comes on sooner. So it responds faster and with more power. More like LeBron

Awesome! My racechip ia apparently stuck in Austin, Texas due to shipping delays by USPS. Hopefully it will be here Monday or Tuesday.

Cheer. I have one in my Macan turbo, and I feel the response is quicker than in stock.

Mine didn't come with A or B labeled on the harness. Does it matter? Anyone else not have labels?

I see now the wires are different colors and will show if someone just takes a look at the race chip harness...anyone anyone?

Ugh. Of course it's 3 AM in Germany.
