What did you do to your mk7 today?

Installed PS4S for the first time. Coming from Indy 500s & I love the PS4S. First impressions, take curbs more confident than the indy's. Car absorbs bumps really nice now. It ended up raining so I did a pull and I am very impressed how I didn't lose traction. Felt like the street was dry as hell. The Indy 500 would spun crazy on a pull in the rain. Hope they last long lol

Ummm..do you make it a habit of running over curbs. May I suggest a 4Runner instead. 😁

I had to buy a computer ): BUT my P3 boost gauge did show up and a buddy of mine gave me some LED's to try and install. I'll probably wait a bit (maybe the weekend,) to do it. Boost gauge seems kinda complicated, it's not the analog one, which means I have to tap into some places.

Dropped it off at the body shop after four weeks of waiting. Got a tiny ass chevy spark as my rental, and holy shit, the bluetooth for calls sounds 100000000x better than in my GTI.
about the only thing going for it

Spark - 1
GTI - 0

Advantage Spark. Rethinking my purchase decision 😂

Done ECU tuning with Nick, here's the final log. The car hauls ass and I'm very happy with the tune... For anyone adept at understanding the nuance of these logs, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Not much to talk about, lol. It’s a clean, not on the edge or maxing out the wastegate or scary timing for a pump gas tune. Just great safe fun

Extra note I see is that jakes fmic is doing a great job with a is38 pump tune - kept the temp flatlined through the whole pull.

Cool, that was the goal. I kinda feel like if an OTS tune was available when I was ready then it would have made more sense to go that route only because it only took one revision to complete the "custom tune." At the same token, I understand this isn't some BT w/ fueling set up that would require a ton of back and forth.

Yep and that was after two previous 2-3 pulls. Solid unit.
