HPFP is also factory. car is an R. goal is to not have to think about E-mixes with the EQT turbo and be able to fill up the tank with E85 occasionally. most of the time the vehicle will be on pump93oct. solely.
It's probably best to consult with your tuner (UM) on this one. But if the 450lph pump is supplying enough fuel for your power levels on E85, then there is no benefit to upgrading it further.

That tends to depend on how well the OTS map is running on your specific car/setup/fuel/conditions. If its running optimally, I would say you'd be looking at around 10whp/15ft-lbs gain from going with a custom tune. If the OTS map isn't quite as happy and you want to go aggressive on the custom tune, we could see as much as 20whp/30ft-lbs. And of course the other benefit to the e-tune is making sure things are safe and proper as well as customizing the powerband to your liking.

Thanks

I'd say no you don't need it unless you run out of pump on full E85 and don't think the flow bump from swapping to a Walbro 525 and upgrading your lines would be enough.

The IROZ brushless is for HP levels beyond what the EQT turbo could do IMO. It's way too much money for 500hp, but it's a bargain if your goal is 700hp+.

thanks guys. i figured the EQT would cause the engine to need more fuel for the additional output for full E85. if that is not the case then you are right probably not needed.

It will absolutely need a lot more fuel than an IS38 on E85. But the 450 should be able to supply enough as long as its getting enough amperage. I've heard of people running a ground to chassis to help.

Ed,



Do you plan on offering any thing like decals or license plate frames, either separately or with the purchase of tunes?



I'm not one to really run with stickers all over or any sort of advertising on the car, but you do great work and I think a lot of your customers here would be more than happy to rep your work.

That big yellow wire is the negative off the pump (oversized vs the dinky little OEM one). Normally it would go to the ECU with the rest of those wires. On the blue connector it has a - sign.

EDIT: I did not need to do this on my car. It runs E70+ just fine.

i took a look, my pump top is green (R) your pic is blue (gti's) the connector layout is not the same. i have 2 connectors. (probably because i have a saddle tank?
so on an R i would still look for the A (minus) sign and would be OK? i dont want to short something out. I will check the voltages first.

edit: searched forum cannot find where you got the info. links? thanks.
2nd edit: as flipflip said this may not be the right forum to post this. can you please message me? thanks!! sorry to Ed didnt mean to cloud up your thread.

Do any of the base tunes with an Accessport get rid of a CEL from a catless downpipe?

Yep. All stage 2 tunes will.

Ed, I think this thread is great. Just wanted to toss out a suggestion to maybe adjust it as FAQ and Q&A thread.

If the OP could have all the FAQ's pre-loaded, it could help reduce the repeat questions and allow focused Q&A as the thread lives on.

I'm sure you know the FAQ's by now, but I imagine a few might be:

What's the average turn around time?
Will the OTS tune removed my CEL?
Are fueling upgrades needed?
What can you tune (ECU and TCU)?
How do I purchase credits?
Upgrade options from OTS to Pro-tune?

You could even lead it off with your "About Custom E-Tuning" and "How it Works" sections from your website: https://eqtuning.com/collections/vw-...7-gti-golf-r-1

End goal, less inundation for you while keeping the basic answers from showing up every two or three pages.

Definitely a great suggestion. Iíll try to set aside some time to put these together, but Iíve been really busy keeping up with the orders lately. If anyone wants to help out and put together some preliminary list items like you did, send it over and Iíll try to fill it out and add to the post.

Thanks
ó Ed
