EQT E-Tuning Q&A

I play a game in the off season where I try to get good gas mileage. Comparing the R to the '10 Sti I once had, the R can be quite efficient.

If the EQT DSG does make any changes in Eco mode I'm not sure it would really help fuel mileage. Driving that conservatively I don't think it would matter.

I can't seem to get a reply from eqt... Ordered their OTS stg1 93 tune yesterday and got nothing except saying I'll get the tune file "shortly".

Anyway, for their dsg tune, is eco mode affacted or just D/S modes?

Again, I've asked them this question and am not getting a reply.

Thoughts?
Took mine a few days and I got it at midnight. Patience. Ordered it last week around Friday received last night at around midnight.

My thought is why would you ever use Eco mode? 😂 I can tell you their DSG tune is fantastic.

Correct, lol +1 on the DSG tune. Is the Eco mode only available on the mk7.5's? Didnt realize there was such a thing

Any 2019 DSG GTI's with the 2.51 revision? Running 2.50 now, and not sure it's worth the update yet. To me, the car runs fine. However, lower oil and coolant temps sound good.

I have the 2.51 version. What's your question?

Did you notice a difference between 2.50 and 2.51? I just want to know if it's worth the $ to update. That's all.

Not one person has said a bad thing about it. So you're gonna have to fork over the 25 bucks and try it yourself. Updates are always improvements (he's not just changing it because he wanted to change the feel of the tune), so in that sense, update it and if you dislike it so much to the point you don't want to take advantage of the fixes, you can roll back.

Eco mode remains close to factory.

Ed,
I’m getting a stage 3 build from Pagparts for my GTI and am interested on your turbo and tunes. From your experience what would you recommend for the turbo size and tunes? I already have all the usual bolt on parts for this project.
I’m looking for reliability and it’s a daily.
I’ll be using 93 oct and would like to avoid changing the fuel system.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Ed will tune a Vortex car without at least a HPFP.

So you’re building the motor to stay stock fuel and on 93?
