Finally pulled the trigger on a BOSS 600. Anybody care to comment on the daily driving aspect when running a DSG? I'll probably be working towards full e85 so that might help some. I'm just hoping the late spool isn't unbearable, which is the exact opposite of the is20 which i feel is just way to torquey.

you will want to drive around in sport mode on the dsg, D mode with my 500 is laggy but sport mode is awesome

91 is about 4.20/gal in California and e85 usually about 3.20/gal. Only thing that sucks is ur filling up every 3 to 4 days. At some point I might get pissed off enough to be using that ethanol slider all the time maestro released.

Good grief. I can't even make up stupid stuff that doesn't exist!! Don't google "stanced prius." You've been warned.

There's even one with FOUR exhaust tips! I sh!t you not.

I’ve got the boss600 kit on a dsg R. I have zero issues with lag in my day to day driving. I’m not trying to say it’s not laggier than the IS38 was on a stage 2 tune, but all the posts I read warning about unbearable lag seem laughable to me personally. Maybe it’s the way I daily drive it, or UM’s tuning, or using the paddles allot but it’s a non issue to me. In S mode the tcu tuning always keeps it around 3500-4,000 rpm anyway, so in S mode she’s always near ready.

I’m tuned by UM and the best way I could describe their tcu tuning (for the big turbo) is now my D mode seems like my S mode when I was on the stock turbo running their stage 2 ecu and their tcu tune for the stage 2 software, and the S mode now for their big turbo ecu/tcu tune is much more aggressive at keeping the rpm’s up where the bigger turbo would be happiest when driving aggressively.

Sure if you floor it off a stoplight not using launch control in D mode at 800 rpm you’re waiting for the fun to begin until you get closer to 3500-4000 rpm but if I’m really trying to leave hard I’m using LC anyway. Otherwise it’s well worth the compromise for all the power on the top end for me and that it doesn’t bleed boost as the rpm’s rise always puts a smile on my face.

And just for full disclosure, I also have a 16 dsg R with just a vwr sealed intake and UM’s stage 1 ecu/tcu tune also, so I know for a fact their tcu tuning is completely changed for a big turbo setup, that and they told me when speaking with them, but yes it’s especially noticeable even if I hadn’t spoken with them if you can drive them back to back. I’m not sure what other tuning companies do with their tcu tuning if you go big turbo or if it’s essentially the same as their tcu tune for anyone running a stage 1/2 setup and their tcu tune. No doubt UM’s big turbo tcu tune is different than their tcu tune for stage 1/2 cars and works well with the boss600 kit!

remember that gti and a3 have much longer gearing than golf r
