What do u mean by different situation. If you mean any of my other mods - no.

This is the only mod where the car is legitably faster than stock.

As long as there is no CEL, I could care less about codes. Car is running great today.

I don't think that will solve the NJ inspection requirements though.
It may not, solely because all it does is force the rear O2 sensor to be ready. I'm unsure if this will allow NJ residents to actually pass inspection, though. Needless to say I never had the chance to try with my MKV when it was Stage 2+.
I've been talking to Danek over at Eurotech motorsports in Mahwah about this. The only solution is to get a spacer for the O2 sensor, and even then that's not a guarantee the CEL won't reappear at some point.
GIAC and the AWE downpipe (despite it being super expensive) will pass, from what I gather, since the cat in the DP is one of th ebest on the market, and it has the spacers come with it.

Just wondering since you said it feels only like a 25-30 hp gain, unless you were talking wheel horsepower? According to AWE/GIAC's dynoplots you should be getting at least 35-45 whp.

Well with a 10 to 15 percent drive train loss those figures would make sense then.

Yeah.

BTW, your car still needs a couple of days to adapt, it'll get a little bit more faster

Hey guys, got the time to actually record some footage of the GIAC DTM and Wireless App in action (be warned, it's taken with my 8MP phone lol). I'll create it's own thread in the future.

I'm downloading some movie maker software so it'll at least look a little decent so it may take some time.

But it's sick!

600$ USD is a good price for stage 1 + flashloader + valet considering the local GIAC dealer here in Taiwan wants 1,500$ for the same items (985$ tune + 500$ flash loader). An absolute mockery IMHO.

$500 for the switcher? Wtf? Did you go to E-51? If you went recently, it is because there's no sale going on.

I only got it for $600 because it was part of their tune in celebration for winning 1st place in two classes in a race in Taiwan.

Yes I sure did. E-51 is just around the corner from me. Their prices for parts are good with a slight premium over US prices, but that's acceptable considering import taxes and shipping. But software flashes don't require parts other than a computer and a bit of labor. The guys at E-51 wouldn't budge on price. Im not a cheapskate, but in principle I just can't do it.

I had my car in at E-51 today for a Unibrace UB install, and I asked about a possible upcoming sale. They told me they had just finished one (which I wasn't aware of). They were nice enough to extend me the sale price for Taiwan of 1000$ USD for stage 1 + flashloader + stock and race gas map. I'll get my car later and test it out, then report back.
