Cool C2 Motorsports tune

I have a mk6 2.5 golf. I would like to get it tuned. Currently I only have a Awe Catback exhuast. Everything else is stock. I was thinking about getting the C2 Motorsports tune. Just the stage one with the 91 Octane fuel on the street setting. Is there a better tune for the money? would i be best off just getting an intake. I like the neuspeed intake. Thanks Grant

Check out integrated engineering - their V3 cable is pretty sweet and you can do the tune yourself. I'm enjoying the perf difference with the tune and their customer service is great.

Not sure what you mean by "Rev Hang" but I've seen the following changes:
1) cleaner take off
2) improved shifts (I have an auto trans)
3) higher redline
4) smoother and more aggressive power delivery.

Email performance ie with your questions - they are awesome

The rev hang on my golf is not as bad as this one but still still noticeable

And do you really feel the power gains?

I have an AWE catback, this tune, and the AEM intake and yes I can feel the power gains big time. I added in the Tylrol sport master cylinder bracket to firm up the brakes. (Order was Intake, Tune, Exhaust - felt noticeable improvements with every step)

You need their V3 cable - 1 end hooks to your obd2 connector, the other to your windows laptop. You need to make sure your car has a solid power source to keep things at 12V - either jumping from another car, or a charger. Takes about 15 min to flash the ECU.

Super straightforward

Yup - just click a different file on the computer.

Just need to be mindful that the ECU has a flash counter - keeping track of the number of flashes you do. Also you need to make 100% sure you have a good power supply for your car. If you drain your battery too much during the process you will brick the ECU

I was really worried about this too - but the tech suppprt people from integrated engineering helped out tons and made me feel confident to do this. Damon Earl was awesome
