    Misfire after Unitronic Stage 2 IS20

    I have the same combo Uni Stage 2 IS20 + 6sp auto. I had misfires earlier when Stage 1+, random, the same way as you've mentioned when shifting 3rd to 4th gear. All solved by new OEM Golf plugs with a shorter gap + APR coils. My car has been smooth, with zero misfires, for more than 40k km. Here...

    Ignition coils

    When I did my first tune to Uni stage 1+, @ around 35k km, I started having misfires. That was solved by replacing my coils & plugs for the APR coils, and OEM Golf plugs with a shorter gap. Since then, + Stage 2 IS20 @ around 50k km, no issues at all. Smooth idle and acceleration. Now with 80k km.

    Unitronic Stage 2 + Tune

    I have a 2018 1.8 auto 09G stage 2 IS20 Unitronic with Uni DP and GTI catback + valance. Very nice sound, not too loud. And no issues at all with the IS20 tune, excellent for daily driving. If you plan for an IS38, only if DSG or manual. Uni does not have an IS38 tune for the auto 09G.

    Tuned 1.8 Tsi long term reliability

    I have 80k on my 2018 1.8 Auto 09G. Stage 1 since 30k and Stage 2 IS20 since 50k. No issues at all with the IS20, except the challenge to control the wheel spin on 2nd gear, too much power for FWD even with upgraded suspension, bushings, mounts, tires, etc. I've had a few misfires when Stage 1...

    CAT-BACK EXHAUST

    The MK7 GTI has a 2.5 inch (not 3) vs a 2.25 inch of the TSI models. I have a 4-door hatch TSI 1.8 IS20 with a Unitronic catted downpipe. Our downpipe kit comes with a 3 to 2.25 reducer. I had no issues with the GTI catback installation using a 3 to 2.5 reducer also from Unitronic and a new...

    I see you are in Hamilton, "near" you www.parkautomotorsports.ca in Kitchener and www.eurosporttuning.com in Oakville. I usually buy my stuff at SEM in North York www.semmotorsports.com. Of course, they all ship to any place in Canada.

    Downpipe What's the best brand ?

    My first mod was Unitronic's tune Stage 1+. To upgrade the DP I would need Stage 2 tune. The tune from 1+ to 2 was around $100 and the guarantee of no CEL with the same brand DP. It is a great quality piece, perfect fitment. I've already driven 15k Km, no issues.

    Unitronic Stage 1 Tune Review?

    I have a 2018 MK7.5 1.8 TSI automatic (09G). I had driven stock for 18 months and 35k Km before doing Uni Stage 1+ with Uniconnect cable. Awesome mod, but only after solving annoying misfire issues at full throttle. The 1st attempt was changing the plugs to new RS7 plugs which improved the...

    Downpipe reducer to stock TSI exhaust?

    I have a 2018 TSI, now with stage 2 Unitronic and the Unitronic downpipe which came as a complete package (reducer, clamps). The fit was like OEM, easy install, great quality and results, however, more expensive than other brands. I'm very satisfied, in my opinion, the extra $ worth.
