I'm leaning towards Kerma since we got it for my wife, and she doesn't really want a straight pipe mommy mobile, but just thinking about that makes me smile.Kerma if you want to keep the emissions systems intact. Malone if you plan on deletes
I don't know if you actually have "boost surge" or if you just need to modulate the accelerator pedal better. I don't think that you really mean boost surge but rather more acceleration than you intended in which case you'll learn how much pedal to give it. Welcome to the forum also.Hey guys been reading through this thread lots of good info! I have a question for the pros here.. currently running ie v2 intake ie turbo inlet pipe and maperformance dp. Ran stage 1.5 for a long time with no issues. Finally put the dp on and flashed to stage 2 93 high torque and not too happy. It seems as though the boost is being called for too early and fast (if that makes sense) when in normal mode if I step into it a little bit like when you gradually speed up to pass someone the car goes into Hannibal lecter mode (boost surge) and doesn’t stop until I let off the gas. Now if I’m paddle shifting or in sport mode and driving hard it’s not a problem and doesn’t happen nearly as much but it’s really ruined it when just driving around in the “normal” setting. Flashed to the adjustable file and set to 93/24 and it’s much better but still pretty constant. Any ideas? Btw car has 54,000 miles and everything is in great shape no issues. Thanks for any help!!!
As the previous guy said you need to modulate the throttle or put better rubber on the wheels. I'm running 235/40s and 2nd gear has just a bit of spin when getting on the throttle. The non-HT tunes were very linear. I like having the torque bump there when playing around. I'd recommend getting the DSG tune so you can get the full benefit of the ECU tune.Finally put the dp on and flashed to stage 2 93 high torque and not too happy.

Soooooo, found out that I had the boost set to 26 PSI and octane at 93.I've been running 25psi and 93oct on my R from the OTS adjustable tune. I've noticed a few times (this only happens once in a while) when shifting from 2 -> 3 under wide open throttle and shifting at redline conditions that I sometimes get a loss in power with the traction light flashing
Anyone else see anything like this? Is this maybe something built in to the tune that warns of knock?
Looks real good. Best of luck.Heading to the track on Monday for HPDE, checked gaps on the Ruthies, looking sweet. Thought I'd log just to make sure I'm ready to beat up on some Mustangs. Looks pretty clean to me thoughts and feedback appreciated as always. I've got it set for 25 and 92 octane, seems to be sustainable power for hot laps.
Spark Retard at recognised knocking
-Looks like a map that defines how far to retard timing when it detects a knock event. $5 says Twist is the first one to mess with this.
-map that defines idle speed based on oil and coolant temp. I might play with this one in the summer and see if I can't smooth out the AC on, stop and go, brutal vibes due to my hybrid puck dogbone.
-map for high oil pressure stage request. Now we can increase oil pressure at lower airmass to lubricate the turbo better as it is spooling. Map is blanked out though so no idea what units are or where to start
Psssh.. Old news.. 1.8s have had this for a while now. And we have pops and bangs already.New features available for GTI / A3 (idle speed, oil pressure, knock detection thereshold, etc)
The knock correction table is interesting. You can make the ECU correct more or less aggressively by RPM and load. You also have a better idea of what's happening by seeing the table.Diggs24
Have you played with any of these? Not sure if there’s a real benefit in adjusting some of these new tables
