The FWD file was developed on my car, GLI with electronic diff, 255/35-19 PS4S tires, and good roads. We considered it the "best case" scenario for traction... While I 100% agree that the AWD feels faster, it is not. I think the fun of roasting the tires and trying to pedal it is too much fun that it overrides that actual speed the FWD file gets.

We could not get better 0-60 times than we did with the current FWD file; I think the best was 4.9 seconds, but consistent 5.0/5.1's were easily attained.
Thanks for the insight

Are there any revisions/updates to the DTR HPFP/LPFP on 93 octane tune that I need to be aware of? I'm looking to have the fueling done in the next few weeks.

Is it normal during hard acceleration (ASR Off / ESC Sport, no launch mode) for the traction control to kick in during wheel spin and the light flashes on the dash with either FWD or AWD tunes?

How difficult is it to adjust the voltage of the actuator with the turbo on the car? I was going to reuse my is20 actuator, but if the engine needs to be running to check the voltage it sounds like a long winded process to wait for everything to cool, and possibly not have the room necessary to adjust...
I know I'm a little late, but I found to reasonably easy to do on the car even with big hands.

Yes, especially on a GTI. There are some asr functions that can only be disabled with a patch to the ECU itself, and even if you do that, the light will still come on even if it's not reducing torque.

We can't turn off (through the ECU calibration) all of the nannies that are on the car. I can tell you that my '19 GLI, ASR Off, ESC Sport, will still do other things that will "protect" you, even when compared to my older car, a '16 GTI.

For instance, if you are ASR off, ESC Sport in both cars, and you are attempting to going around a right hand corner at WOT. The GLI just won't give you power or cuts throttle so that the car can try to go around the turn - it still tries to "achieve" whatever steering angle are are asking of the car. The GTI (PP car) on the other hand, would just roast the front tires and go straight into the curb.

There are motorsport ABS codings that will completely disable all ESP and "ice" mode, but those are too much for a car on street tires.

Happens to me sometimes, even though I have an R. I took this clip earlier today to show someone in another thread what the spool of the DTR was like. My mounts need to be replaced.

Ran a 11.30 on base e85 LPFP / HPFP file with passenger seat still in car. 2016 S3. I have MPI wired in and tuning it tomorrow. Will do a hit Tuesday when it’s in the 40’s here in Florida and hope for mineshaft air for a 10.99

Flashed the MPI file and went to try a hit and car went into limp mode in all four cylinders. I believe the .024 gap they want is definitely not it. I’m running the R7437-9 at .024. Car started misfiring at 7k rpm. Will try and gap to .020. Will get back to you guys tomorrow!

It's not the plugs.
Do you know a way to see if the MPI is even working? Low side pressure says it’s at 5 bar. Don’t know if the mpi isn’t working at high load or it’s the in-tank pump not supplying enough fuel. Sucks I have nothing to log with but I do have a brand new Cobb lol, but won’t be able to use it.
