    I have a 2000 VW GTI VR6.I'm trying to connect a performince chip

    do not cut into these wires. any real performance programmer will not require you to do this. these ones that tell you to cut into the IAT will ruin a $700 mass air flow meter, and do not do anything. all they do is try to trick the computer into thinking it is colder then it actually is, and to richen the fuel mixture, which will actually HURT performance and emissions because the air density does not match what the temp sensor is reading. the temp sensor is there for a reason!

    The first thing you should do is have the MAF sensor checked out because the symptoms you describe are that of a faulty MAF.
