I didn't mean to imply that Uni's tune was unsafe. I'm sure it's within acceptable margins of safety and is obviously putting down great power.

All of the tuners claim magic secrets. But, I've actually tuned project cars with standalone ECUs. Ignoring hardware, there are three tuning ingredients on a turbo car. Boost (X), timing (Y), and fuel (Z). These are the three things a tuner can control vs RPM at WOT to make more power. Note: on cars with variable cam timing and intake flaps, you can change the activation points as well to alter when the airflow changes occur, but these changes usually affect driveability more that ultimate WOT power.

If one combination of X Y Z = 300 whp, then another combination which uses less X to make the same 300 whp has to get more aggressive on the Y and/or the Z. It's just physics; not secrets. More hp is the result of a more powerful explosion in the combustion chamber.

Each tuner has their preferred methodology on which combination of X Y Z they like to employ. There are pros and cons to each method. I know what combination I like.

Update :

Source : Carworks

VBOX TESTED: 0-100km/h 5,3sec or 0 to 62MPH 5.3 Sec

So 0 to 60 Mph you looking at 5.2 sec

Drive magazine standards:
2 persons, Full equipment, 3/4 gas tank, full load car, street tires, public road, pump gas, average time of 2 sequential passes, one in each direction.

I think 1 person, back seats and spare tire off, good summer tires, LSD, mounts and good suspension you will be in the high 4' ... very impressive for a FWD !!!!

It would be nicer if the video wasn't so damn blurry and shaky lol. Plus for those of us who drive the American GTI the video gives us a placebo effect of the speed because you have to remember it's in kph instead of mph. So when the video says 162ish its roughly only 100mph so in essance the video is a bit misleading. Quick runs but not oh shit fast! Sorry didn't want to Shiiiteee all over the thread but it's still cool seeing what a k04 can do.

true because in Europe the Speedo is in KPH so his top speed is 270KPH = to 168 - 169 MPH ..
