  3. Golf VII R
    Hey everyone, I have a question on something I did that may have been dumb on my part. I just did my first tune ever on a car, Stage 1 Equilibrium tune for 2016 Golf R. I checked the box for "burbles in sport mode" thinking, "whatever its free, even if I have my stock downpipe and dont hear any...

  6. Golf VIII R
    Hey guys, I've been away from VW for a few years (okay, maybe more than a few since my MK5 GLI)....but was curious what tuning possibilities will likely exist for the MK8 R. I've been using BMS (Burger Tuning) JB+/JB4 on my BMWs for the past 10 years. What do you guys use and why do you...
  7. Golf VII R
    Hey everyone, I have a chance coming up to get a new Southbend Stage 3 Daily clutch installed on my 2016 Golf R. The car is basically stock besides an intake and I know if I get this clutch put in, I can put well past Stage 1 power down in this car. Before I bought this car, I specifically...
  8. Tiguan (PQ35)
    Hello everyone, I’ve recently been looking into chip tuning and I was going to buy a Unitronic tune, but I’ve found software like VAGSuite and EDCSuite that claim to do the same thing for cheaper. I have little knowledge of how tuning works besides it remaps the engine. Does anyone know what my...
  9. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I've recently bought a 2003 Golf TDI, unfortunately and to my dismay, its automatic. I've been considering upgrading the worn injectors (186k miles on them) with larger CC injectors and getting a stage 3 tune done. This would put me about 44WHP and 80 ft-lbs WTQ above stock. would this damage my...

  12. Jetta VII
    Howdy. Looking to acquire a '21 GLI autobahn(DSG) edition soon. I'm interested in tuning it, but am a noob. I understand the basics(I think), w/r/t APR Plus vs. Stage 1, 2, etc. (Just looking to do the ECU/engine, not the tranny--probably only gonna do APR Plus to start for now so I think I...
  13. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I'm about to start on a project to swap out my 01m transmission with a 02j transmission which is of course going from an automatic to a manual. I've hit a road block however, because I don't know what wires from the old tcu I need and if I need to retune it or not. I thought about just buying a...

  16. Atlas SUV
    Anyone begun the Modification R&D on the Atlas/Atlas CS as far as Power Adding/Tune Modification(s) for the VR6/8-SPD/4 Motion Units? Currently own a 21 Model Year Atlas CS and DEFINITELY see the potential for some extra oomph and/or finesse of the stock components. Why VWAG doesn’t put the...
  17. Golf/GTI VII
    Hey ya'll. First post here. Quick question! So I am purchasing a MK7 GTI next week with a DSG transmission. This car currently has an IE intake, IE downpipe, and an IE DSG tune. My initial thoughts about this was to buy an accessport and flash the ECU and the transmission so that this IE DSG...

    Hey everyone. I've been trying to figure this out for a while now and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas. I have a 2003 Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 1.8t AWP with a Eurodyne Stage 1 tune. I'm seeing various levels of timing pull under acceleration only, up to 12 degrees at the worst. It seems...
  19. Tiguan (PQ35)
    I have a 2015 Tig with 4Motion. I recently purchased some Niche Rims 19x9.5 with 245/45 tires. That got the tuning itch started. First, I want to lower the Tig, but not crazy low since I live in NYC. Then I want to increase power. I'm thinking CAI, Cat back, and what else?? Here is where I...
  20. Golf VI R
    This evening I attempted to flash an 034 stage 2 tune on my MK6R. I am writing this the night of attempting to flash and will call 034 tomorrow but just curious what people have to say. When I went to flash the tune it loaded only up to 4% before being stuck at 4% for well over an hour. My...
