Exactly, the way it was explained to me was that it creates an "unknown variable" that some tuners don't want to have, especially because MPI gives you all the fueling you need and is 100% tuneable.

I might even go this route as I really don't care about maxing out and getting all the power out of the new turbo. Ed was saying I'd probably get about 430whp on 94 octane with stock pumps which is WAY more than enough for me as a daily driver.

Childish me just wants to hit the 500hp crank number lol

I feel the same way, wouldn't mind the boost from just bolting on with the stock fueling either.

But when childish you wants that 500hp, an LPFP and MPI add on with Ed's tune will get you that

Eds guesstimating 430ish awhp, which puts me close to 500 crank and that'll be with stock pumps

500 crank is just a number, a lot of that depends on the dyno you're measuring that on, but it's a reasonable goal without too much work to get there!

EDIT: Sorry that sounded really negative. My goal would be to have a measured 500hp, even if it wasn't on a heart breaker dyno.

I'm currently unitronic stage 2 but have had a slipping g clutch the whole time I've been turned. Just installed dkm twin disc and the power delivery is insane. so whatever magic Ed can do on my EQT kit with stock pumps I'm SURE will blow me away compared to where I am right now.

Just reading thru the 13 pages and everything is pure positive comments, had my mind set on APR Stage 2 but even with the Cobb AP + Tune File this is going to come in a good few hundred bucks cheaper then what I was quoted locally

Would love if maybe 1 or 2 of the guys would post a video of their Stage 2 tune with pops and bangs just to get an idea how the OTS tune sounds

I found this vid from them:
https://youtu.be/TdLI1MkgSxE

I think someone posted a vid on a mk7/MQB Facebook group, but I'm not too sure. Regardless, the pops and bangs are more tame than other companies'.

Here you go. I really like how itís just a few pops, rather than the continuous popping that APR and Unitronic tunes do. Exhaust setup is IE downpipe and Clubsport S muffler.

I prefer this much more than my current unitronic stage 2 overrun. This sounds more OEM, where uni sounds exaggerated.

That sounds pretty much perfect. Not too little, not too much.

Sorry that wasnít the greatest video showing that. It will pop around 2800-3000 as well.

for those who have the eqt tune, did you get these options:
-Cobb Launch Control (Fuel Cut Based)
-Cobb Adjustable Traction Control

do you like these options, is it that much different ?

Those are the additional options that you can have Ed enable. I had him on my S2 base tune but honestly haven't messed with them. These settings do reset after turning the car off/on so you would need to set them each time on the AP. Basically probably something you wouldn't mess with too much unless testing or track/strip.
