2001 225 audi TT quattro 1.8t AMU engine (no wideband)
I assuming that most tunes will assume that you have intake, exhaust, DV, FMIC. But people rarely ever have any intake manifold mods. I would like to put an AEB large port intake manifold and pholenic spacer on the car for more power. But I am concerned about stretching the a/f limits of whatever tune is designed for this engine.
From what I understand most tunes are aimed at certain mods. ie stage 1, stage2, stage2+, stage 3, etc.
I am keeping the stock turbo. And stock longblock. But I have to decide if I want to keep the intake manifold/spacer stock.

Engine currently stock. I am collecting parts and planning on a tune/chip. I was aiming for a giac+ chip, but they cannot clear emissions deletes and things like that, so i'm shopping for something else. I am trying to save money and am not planning on doing a custom dyno tune. No idea which tune brand to go with either....

Planned mod list:
225 AMU engine.
3" catless turbo back exhaust
forge DV
oversized 3" TIP
cone air filter
FMIC.

Debatable mods:
AEB large port intake mani
large to small port matched phelonic spacer 10mm
very light intake porting(or just leave it).

I did a big port AGU mani on my ported AWP head with a matched spacer adapter. I got it all for free so I figured why not sense I wasn't ever going to buy an aftermarket one. Unfortunately the only difference I noticed was the way it looks.

You don't "push" an OTS flash.

You get dyno tuned.

Check out Motoza for software. I have had good luck with them. They remote tune so any deletes are no big deal. You send them a build sheet and they send you a base tune. Then log the car on the road using their interface. Send them the data and they send back a tune that is tailored to your set up.

That sounds sweet. How are the prices?

Checked their site. Their prices are great! The noted performance is not impressive though. Only a 40hp gain over stock

additional question.
if I want to get some major upgrades later on, then which tuner brand should I go with? Is it possible to avoid having to pay for a complete new chip/tune if I make major changes later on? i mean like if I go built motor/big turbo etc.

Many go for Unitronic 630cc.

Couple of good build videos from CO Motorsport on Youtube on their 1.8T Jetta

Go with motoza or Malone if you want to keep things upgraded and honest over time.
