There has been some civil unrest but relatively isolated at this stage.
Quick correction - the dyno is at 5700ft. Its not a happy dyno and only a handful of stock turbo N54's have made it past 400whp on it so the figures are very impressive.
Have you observed fitment of a stock intake pipe. Either way its not a walk in the park. What modification did it require?

You can stage with the rears if the pre stage starts whilst the beams are between the front and rear wheels. You then roll forward and stage with the rears. I am not suggesting this was done on this...

So the change of the tune and adding a downpipe and intake added 18whp. Did people expect more?
The gains are small with the bolt on mods especially the rear section, most people I know went back to stock and fitted better looking tailpipes. Maybe a cutout on the dp is the way to go for $#@!s...
That is very loud. Is it 3.5inch right through or just the bend of the DP?

Looks like a rebranded Speed Buster unit. Does it have rpm signal?
Wow, just wow. Did you do this DIY just to help people? If so kudos to you and some rep points.

The manufacturers will never open the ECU's. I am sure the Euro emission laws require some form of protection.
The newest snag in tuning is going to be software that reverts back to stock even...

You have hit the nail on the head with everything posted.
In some cases the RSA key pair can be used and after the first Tricore read and write the OBD is left open and in others it cannot be done,...

Flashtec which makes the popular CMD tool has opened pre orders. It looks like a ECU out method.

The problem has been addressed in the Stage 1 which is still undergoing testing. It is more of a problem on the R than the GTI. I am testing higher boost levels on the GTI this week to see when the...

Sounds like spool surge. Does it only do it when you load from low down as the boost picks up?
Happy Birthday. Have a blast.

Do a search on google. Their exhausts where meant to have a technology called RSC in the mufflers hence the pricing. Someone decided to start cutting them open and this is one of the pics posted:
