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.
Picture 4 or 5 there is someone standing next to the dining table. Is that your wife? Does she think...

The APR curve is great for a diesel.:awesome:

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,...

I have their tools and a up to date subsription so I can go into the commercial side of their site that give you the options to buy products. It usually has more details. So in this case tricore...

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:

I am surprised you didnt get a wiff about the exhaust fiasco cause I know you like scandal.

Thanks for the positive comment, I actually go far back with Rowen (I even stole his camping chair :facepalm).
Awesome news on the R.
11-27-2014, 06:25 PM
Awesome. If there is anyway I can help give me a shout.

Ouch. The stage 1 is more or less ready to for release so will keep you updated for that. The Jb4 needs work still with the Canbus.
With APR could you hear any surging on spool up if you held the...
I have used a tool called The Knock Box from Australia in the past. You can probably identify usual knock vs something else making a noise at different frequency. Worth a look.

Upon presentation they mentioned manual only. Rumours are also that its a R420 with 420hp. I think that car with the DSG will out perform the TT RS and RS3 so they will try keep it slightly back.
