Sticky created the thread Volkswagen determined to have the world's most powerful four-cylinder - Introducing spectacular the MKVII Golf R 400 Concept.
" Volkswagen is not playing around when it comes to turbocharged four-cylinder performance at least. There is a reason Volkswagen lured AMG's head of engine development Friedrich Eichler away (likely with a wheelbarrow full of money). Eichler is the man responsible for the M133 AMG 2.0 liter four-cylinder in the CLA45 AMG which currently holds the world's most powerful production four-cylinder title at an underrated 355 horses.

Enter the Golf R 400 which previews Volkswagen's hotter EA888 2.0 liter direct injected and turbocharged four-cylinder motor. You guessed it, output is 400 PS (395 horses) placing the Golf R 400 considerably ahead of the 45 AMG models. It also revs higher going to 7200 rpm. This power is sent to all four wheels through a 6-speed dual clutch DSG gearbox.

The 331 lb-ft of torque combined with the all wheel drive and dual clutch make for a quick and likely conservative 0-60 sprint of 3.9 seconds. This time is helped out by the 3130 pound-curb weight which is incredible for an wheel drive Golf.

Volkswagen, this is the kind of car you build if you want to turn things around in the USA. This is the kind of car with attitude that will get you noticed. Who is not going to like a Golf that can dust a Porsche 911?

If you built it, they will come. Which considering your track record probably means you won't do it. If you do go through with it do not make the mistake of not bringing this car to the USA. We may just never forgive you. Seriously, keep your Phaeton and give us this instead. "

There are some IAT benefits and to supplement the HPFP. Now that I know all is good, I don't have cylinder washing, and havent had any apparent issue with distribution or atomization, I plan on testing a .375lpm nozzle. Up until now I've been running a .225lpm nozzle. "

Maybe you should listen some more. He was actually talking about responsability of the sport.
Ron Dennis, as sporting director of Mc Laren, is very knowledgable about the politics and technique in F1.
He is very outspoken and worth listening to.
And in this interview he's saying some very true things about people's motives to their reactions. "

The BB flash is really easy to use, get a BT cable (or borrow one), first step is to make a backup of your current rom. Save it somewhere safe and then just write a old stock rom to your ECU.

And then reinstall the Cobb on that and wait for support to be added. "

Force write is a good way of forcing the computer out of a state where it doesn't want to listen to you so you can try again at worst case. Used to come in handy on my K-Line often.
I assume this works when my bimmerboost flash says it can't connect to the control module? Annoying as the first flash I did awhile back worked perfectly. "
