Thanks, really appreciate it. I'll wait for more reviews. I'll go sit in my corner festering with hate for apr now.

First thing first, get rid of apr's trash canned tune.... Go to a REAL tuner, who will actually tune specifically for your car.

Holy cow, someone who knows how to build. No point in having all that power if you can't transfer it to the ground.

I have a buddy who drives an S2000 pushing 550bhp and 355tq. And can't understand why I eat him up all the time. He has almost no suspension/drivetrain/mount mods.

So who tuned your tte420? I see I can buy one from usp. Maybe this will keep me from buying the new arteon next year.

Yes and there are a few people here in the states that will custom tune them, but there are a lot of tuners in Europe that are willing to send you the accessport and files to do it. And they are really good about getting back to you.

UM and DM both have otf tunes available for the gti tsi tte420... only other options is eurodyne or cobb for a custom tune. If your looking for another option mabotech380h turbo is 1700 with a guy putting down 407whp and 385tq with a small e20/e30 blend motor is untouched.

Don't take this the wrong way but while we love the "how to swap a throttle body" DIY tutorial, you're not offering enough feedback on the throttle body in terms of variable driving conditions and data. I've reached out to Grams Performance regarding this unit and was provided very little info other than a product brochure and the fact that several tuners have provided their own testing inclusive of 034 Motorsport. I placed a call over to Jeremy who said this was a legit addition.

If the stars align, I plan to provide a full review, providing feedback from real world driving scenarios, data logs (I have specific data points I want to measure), comparisons vs. the OE throttle body, water methanol usage and more.

Again, logs are needed, it will add more fuel at certain engine load but 02 correction should compensate with LT fuel trims.

Check for a vacuum leak

I wrote the DIY and my impressions and problems for this product.
It's good to see this added to a bolt on turbocharger setup. Now I can provide feedback on a full long block engine build, custom turbo system and even heavier suspension build. I also have a local club member and friend looking to provide APR Stage 2 (stock turbo) feedback on this same throttle body.

None taken whatsoever. Please do a more detailed analysis of the product and provide feedback.

Also, below are screenshots of at idle and at throttle (driving speed).

I reached out to Grams. And their suggestion was disconnect the negative terminal for 15 minutes. Needless to say that didn't work. It is religious though that it turns over on the second crank on a cold/warm engine. Hot engine cranks the first time.

Your vacuum seems rather high, you should be between 18-20Hg. Check for vacuum leaks.
