It burbles if you bring up drive modes and set to sport, or tap individual while engine is set to sport. Disable by going to comfort or turn off the car.

Car always starts with burbles off regardless of mode until you re-engage by doing the above. Burbles happen above 2500 or so when letting off gas. If you have soft mounts the engine will rock a bit and feel quite shit

^what he said, but will also work in other modes if you are tuned by something other than EQT. Mine just burbles all the damn time lol.

To make sure I understand what you're saying.

If I'm the type who always leaves his car in sport mode the burbles will be off. If I decide to indulge to my inner child I just need to swap through drive modes back to sport to activate it. If I want to be an adult again I just turn off the engine and can leave it alone in sport?

This might solve my problem of I really want the burbles only sometimes (rarely), but actually use both normal and sport. It's like a secret peacock setting.

Thats correct, I leave my car in custom settings with sport engine, comfort steering and suspension and no burbles happen. Come the kid in a shitbox that brings the inner child in me and I just tap individual again from mode select, and its taco season brapp brapp down the highway

I for one wish they will set the burbles at the ROW OEM setting. I hated the burbles on my Gen5 Camaro, but loved them in my Gen6. There were excessive in the 5, and subtle on the 6, even on sport mode for daily driving.

Has anyone gone from COBB aggressive DSG tuning to EQT DSG? What are the main differences? Is the tune in Sport mode vs D on COBB? I drive it in sport all the time and find that COBB still changes gear a little too quickly. There are several times I see my self dropping to 6 or 5th gear while driving country roads around 55-65 and the DSG decides that it should be in 7th.

@Ed @ EQT I read through your FAQs but didn’t seem to find an answer. My situation is this: bought my car used. Found that it was at some point tuned by IE. It was ECU and TCU tuned. I’m pretty sure the previous owner returned the ECU to stock, but left the TCU in, judging by the individual gear reading in the MFD. If I go with one of your tunes do I need to get an IE power link, retune the the TCU back to stock then load yours? Thanks.

Ed doesn't come in here very often. You would be better off emailing him directly at

Fair enough. I’m not in a rush either way. Still in the info gathering stage. Thanks for the heads up though.

Not sure about IE, but I can tell you even when you remove the Cobb TCU tune, you still see the individual gear reading n the MFD.

Obviously YMMV, just an FYI.

You should be ok flashing over it.
