The Racechip GTS box I have it set to 5 (standard) and has made the torque better at low rpm so more pulling power, I guess yours is the the 190PS same as mine. I can't complain really does the job. It was cheaper than some others and it offered better figures too, obviously I haven't rolling road checked it, but seen other videos of VAG engines checked against actual Racechip specs on rolling roads and they match those.
Many thanks.

There’s no point doing an engine swap when most of the mechanicals are the same. All you need to do is swap the turbocharger with the IS38 off a 280/272PS engine. https://www.goapr.com/products/turbo_20 ... 8_mqb.html

That is what you need, I think REVO also sell a similar off the shelf upgrade.
