Ive been told before that it must be a hardware issue with my intake and I figured it was a fluke with my car. Seeing other people finally having the same issues makes me feel better about them actually giving a shit.

I'm gonna make some videos and contact the via support.

I've never had APR get back to me using their support. I sent in an email, no response. Later on I tried their support system on their website, no response. I know I'm not the only one that never got a response. More annoying than hilarious really.

I randomly stopped getting replies so I pmed Arin and he helped me out, I guess their support system gets emails messed up

Ok, I have an update for all those experiencing the nasty DSG shifts with APR 2.4 especially in manual mode as I have been fighting with this for > 1 year now and was about to switch tuners.

Update:
On a whim, I decided since I just hit 70k I would go for some fresh sparks, new R8 coilpacks and a new PCV as well just for good measure. One of those fixed my nasty DSG shifts, smooth as butter now in D and near perfect in M even at full boost (where it was terrible prior). My theory is my PCV was failing or the diaphragm was busted just enough to not throw any codes. But now, car runs incredibly smooth, power is back to 100% (though it was probably 95%), shifts are crisp and smooth up and down and it's quiet as ever.

Cliff notes:
-Rough DSG shifts with APR 2.4 (I'm stage I)
-updated coilpacks and R8 coils to new ones at 70k
-updated PCV valve (super easy install)
-power back, smoothness in the engine and DSG shifts makes me happy with car again
-Thanks HSTUNING
-MPGs are up as well

Just an option to try if any of you are experiencing nasty DSG shifts and not throwing codes or anything else.

How much was the PCV valve? Worth it to replace the stock one or just get a catch can with an African plate (or something to that extent)?

Was like 120 or 130 if I recall correctly. After 70k it was piece of mind to replace it as the MKVs all had PCV issues as well. Was just a bonus prize that it fixed my software problems. Makes sense though if boost was escaping. At full boost my shifts were total bullshit.

I was having just some odd issues, also Stage I, I pulled the manifold to do a carbon cleaning and replaced the PCV Valve as well. When I put it all back together the car drove great again.

I was just told by a local APR dealer there is an update for the stage 1 tune, stage 1+ that takes into account the intake. A few more HP. Got it done yesterday, I feel the difference up top, power doesn't flat line above 5500 anymore, gains a little more than it did before.

Are you talking about version 2.4 or is there a updated to 2.4?

I don't recall the version. I was already on 2.4 and needed to reflash for another reason and the rep told me there was an update to 2.4 where it adds a little power for having the intake.

Even APR's site now has the partition for the tune w/intake instead of not. The drop downs are different.

He is just referring to the 2.4 Stage I+ tune vs. the 2.4 Stage I tune (no intake). There have been no further updates to 2.4.

Did you use an OEM PCV valve?
