    Dsg 1st and R

    Are you making a turn when this happens? Like pulling out onto a street fast? If so this could be the traction control. This happens to me from time to time as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It does cost to transfer over the tune unfortunately They will use your email address to ask permission for any software updates when the shop attempts to update. So you need to pay and transfer to your info to do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    19x8.5j or 19x8j? (ET45)

    This is a fair point. Use the right side mirror dip when in reverse to prevent curbing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    8.5 is the way to go for 235. The very slight stretch makes the tire preloaded for better traction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mk7 golf r remap problem

    This happened to me and it was fixed by going one step colder spark plugs. I would still get check engine light with misfire code once in a while (every few weeks) but the limp mode never came back. My shop then changed my coil packs out to the most recent part number and that stopped the once in a while check engine light for misfires. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. How are these times possible on stage1? What tires are you using? Was this at a dragstrip on prepped track? I have APR stage 2 High Torque and my 0-60 is consistently 3.9 and doing 1/4 in [email protected] Launch control at 3250 rpm. Street tires on an un prepped road Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What tuning box to go for?

    The JB4 grows with you and your mods. So you can get stage 1 power from it with no mods or adjust for stage 2 power when you upgrade your downpipe etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    WHP to BHP and Drivetrain Loss

    Ask the dyno guys. Each dyno is going to give sometimes very different results for the same car. For instance, my car is an R with APR Stg2 will get a 303 whp number on a mustang dyno and get 343 whp on a different brand dyno like dynojet. So really the guys who did the dyno should tell you what you’re numbers mean at the crank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oil cooler ?

    I do not have one fittted and I do not track the car... but I have seen a couple posts from others who track their car discussing the need for an oil cooler. This one from iABED Industriesis is the oil cooler discussed and it seemed to fix the problem keeping oil temps down to 220f-230f (instead of having to back off after a few laps when temps hit 280f. Can't find the forum post now, but it was on either VWVortex or GolfMK7 forums.
