It is not unusual to have US spec cars be sold in the second-hand market over here; this is due to the loose vehicle regulations in my country.



You are correct; typically a custom pro-tune is...

Off the shelf (APR) Vs. Custom (TVS) tunes

I thought I'd share this video to show how faster a custom ecu+tcu combo can be compared to the typical off-the-shelf offering on the 7R. This is done purely for comparison purposes, no bashing...

I had that same concern before upgrading. Went for AMS and there was absolutely no added lag. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53097

I would certainly not recommend to anyone disregarding internals until they hit 450wtq on the EA888.3! I think you meant torque at the crank not the wheels. I do agree with you that torque is...

400whp with just a tune and bolt-ons is a bit optimistic IMO. Notwithstanding what a dyno will tell you, it's been quite established that the stock IS38 fbo on pump 98 ron / 93 aki will be maxed out...

It is possible that the stock clutch will handle the power on JB4 if you drive through your gears in a very specific manner. Shorter version: stock clutch cannot handle the power on JB4.

Interesting info. So the VWR being clipped will have a slower spool than the ETR. Our local tuning shop reported that the VWR spools even better than the TTE470. The ETR must then be a great choice...

The ETR and the VWR units are both made by turbotechnics. I wonder whether they are actually identical, or maybe the fact that they are offered each paired with a specific tune means they are not. In...

Weekend road trip to cali with a stop in Vegas. If you're opening up your engine you can afford it :D
