I launch at 5500 rpm lolThis is something I have been wondering as well.
I recently moved to a hybrid is38 and the stage 3 dsg tune. My only issue is I can't seem to launch the car like I used to.
On the stock turbo and stage 2 DSG tune I can hit high 1.6-1.7 60 foots, but now I am struggling to get below 2 second 60 foots. I used to launch at 3800, now I am trying 4k but the car still falls a bit flat before boost builds. Once boost builds its gone, even with the extremely bad 60foot the cars pulling a 11.3 per draggy.
Does anyone know if stage2 and stage3 both have the same clamping force? Is it just the ECU based LC that it brings to the table?
Maybe I just need to grow some balls and go a bit further on the RPM's Anyone else with a golf r/a3/s3+hybrid turbo with the stage 3 DSG tune care to share what RPM's they are launching at?
Does the car have any power at all? Sometimes tuning can drain the battery. This doesn’t sound like your issue but just a thought.
I had similar issues flashing the the Stage 3 tune. Flashed 2-3 times before it took. Was kind of freaked out lol.If I recall the first time I flashed the TCU, it needed a second install, but that was a long time ago. I think the same thing happened this time. Anyway, besides some lost time on a Sunday and a dose of frustration, all is well.
