I love these forum posts. Better than any drama show on tv.

You didn't read the thread on Vortex, did you? The reading comprehension skills of some of the people there are pretty pathetic.

The Vortex thread about this had to be locked. Doesn't seem like this one needs to be.




...yet.

it's true, I believe it's the stock tune/higher flowing K04 that is the cause. we noticed this last year at one of the dyno days, my stock R made more power than stg1 down low.

Forgive me if I've missed something but what do you mean by higher flowing, it's the same turbo is it not?

I also want to point out that the car was dyno'd with the GIAC tune switched to the STOCK MAP. It isn't necessarily 100% identical to the way the OEM ECU software works even if the maps are the same.

This. I noticed a big change stock to stock mode of APR stage 1. Tuned, stock mode got into good boost sooner. Note this was a GTI, not an R.
