  1. Torque Converter?? The DSG doesn't have a torque converter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Don't forget to include in 2 thru 5 otherwise we can't see if you're getting any correction. That could be your issue and as no two engines are ever going to be quite the same it may need you to individually dial out the corrections as you find them to get a smoother output. The other likely difference/variable is going to be fuel quality (and possibly IATs). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I think you make a realty good point, not only will the JB4 auto protect the engine off it sees anything go too far wrong (knock/timing pull) but the JB4 also doesn't disabled or modify any of the OEM ECU protections (unlike some full tunes) and therefore it's almost impossible to actually damage anything as the car should auto shutdown/go into limp mode before it goes too far.

  4. Best bet would be to log it on Map2 with some 3rd and 4th gear pulls from 2500 to 6500rpm and use your results for your Map6 baseline. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Apologies if this has already been stated but hasn't anyone just asked the manufacturer to confirm? Can a 2016 Golf R Cantronic be moved to another 2016 Golf R? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. The JB4 can read and clear codes, no need to take it anywhere near VW. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. From my understanding there is no issue holding it as long as you like (as far as clutch wear is concerned) as when you are in LC mode with your foot hard on the break and accelerator the clutch is disengaged and there is no wear until you release the break and then the DSG clutch engages first gear immediately. The only reason the clutch would be buying us if you haven't properly engaged LC and the car is trying to pull when your foot is on the break. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. JB1 on the VW platform does NOT log any engine information other than boost (ECU target and JB1 target) and rpm. Information such as timing, afr, load, throttle will only be available once the JB4 upgrade is released which adds a canbus interface. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Definitely works, definitely a big difference, doesn't flag a TD1, yes you can upgrade to JB4, there's United 107 Octane E85 readily available and a few gallons of that in with 98 RON Premium fuel and it's a rocket!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. . Saying turbos have been replaced under warranty on tuned cars and flashing back to stock does not flag an issue (TD1) at a dealer are not the same thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Rick, you should talk to George (of JB1) as your understanding of what that particular piggyback does regarding modification of fuel rail pressure seems different to the description BMS have given previously. I've also heard of lots of turbos being replaced even with tunes as VW have accepted that there is/was an issue with early revisions. This doesn't mean that ECU tunes flashed back to stock aren't detected and a TD1 isn't flagged. This also isn't what you stated in your previous post. In fact it's been posted in detail previously exactly what ODIS/VW Deep Dive can pick up from a tuned ecu which has been flashed back to stock including the exact dates number of times the flashing back and forth happened. This was still logged in the ECU even wjen the flash counter was reset. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yes it is. Also MarriedBlonde, of course a dealer can manually flag a TD1 for any reason they feel like. They could do it because they don't particularly like the look on your face or because you have fitted an aftermarket panel filter. There's no argument that a TD1 can be flagged for a tuning box or any other reason, hell they could manually flag you because you have an APR sticker in the rear window. But my point is that a piggy back that biases fuel rail pressure and keeps ltft within manufacturer limits and is removed prior to going into the dealer can't be automatically detected and flagged unlike every ECU or TCU tune out there at the moment regardless of whether or not you flash back to stock first.
  13. Rick couple of points just to make sure people aren't misled... Tuning boxes that bias fuel rail pressure will not show ltft changes and therefore cannot cause a TD1 flag (as long as you remove it before you take it in). Whereas a ECU tune will raise a TD1 even if flashed back to stock if VW deep dive the ECU (same goes for TCU tunes) unless you are staying that Unicorn have managed to do something that no other Tuning company in the world has been able to do?

  14. The iPhone 5/6/6s etc. definitely do output video over the lightning port, that's why apple sell a lightning to HDMI adapter. http://www.apple.com/au/shop/product/MD826AM/A/lightning-digital-av-adapter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ignore whoever told you that and remember to never listen to them about anything remotely engine related ever again... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
