Most people who would even opt for the Dinan are likely doing so to avoid voiding their warranty, hence going APR is a no go. Going JB4 would be the next logical step.

Not that I know of, but I the Dinan website has a dyno graph for the module on an R.

I've been happy with mine on a GTI

GTI gains are much higher for sure than the R. Curious if itís even worth it for the R

It's going to add the same max 4PSI, generally for ever psi boost added it's apx 7-10 HP.

Their dyno graph is just like 20hp for the R. Iím torn right now if I go APR and save up for a clutch or get he Dinan and save for a clutch and APR..

I can tell you from my 2015 GTI and my 2017GTI, nothing compares to the APR tune, with just stage 1 tune my 2015 GTI went from 14.40 98 mph to 13.20 at 107.5 . Neuspeed PM again same car 14.40 stock, 13.7 104 mph. My 2017 GTI ran almost identical stock to my 2015, Dinan PM 13.80 almost 103mph. It's all about trade offs and what it's worth to you. I've decided this time around on little improvements here and there.

Thatís pretty cool! I love when people actually provide tangible statistics on these like 1/4 mile times. This is something we can all benefit from.

The Dinan Sounds pretty comparable to the Neuspeed PM on the GTI platform. I might have to just give it a shot while I accrue some new clutch cash haha
