Thanks for reaching out. I would suggest by starting here, which is a link to all AWE Tuning Performance products for the Mk6, and some AWE Tuning gear.

We are a dealer of G.I.A.C. Software, which is a competitor of APR and one that we have happily distributed since the company's birth. We have a very strong relationship with G.I.A.C. and are a development partner of theirs.

With that said, I recommend G.I.A.C. over APR and Unitronic. We have found that the power delivery is much more linear with G.I.A.C. and their tunes make good power.

I should've probably dropped this question in here as well.

Will, I was just wondering if the S3 Turbo Outlet Pipe (without the snap ring coupler), would fit with my APR K04 and APR intercooler? It seems like the consensus is that it will but I was just figuring that someone has first hand knowledge of this with the same setup somewhere since it's so common.

Thanks,

On the turbo end, yes.

On the IC end, most likely, but I can't guarantee it. I would think that it should, given that the APR intercoolers do mate up with the stock turbo outlet pipe.

Thanks for the response. I'm thinking it's worth a shot then.

Absolutely! Let me know what your findings are, so I can provide better feedback regarding fitment in the future.

Because bigger is better. All Mk6 GTI exhausts now come with our larger 102mm tips, in Chrome Silver or Diamond Black.

Can you please explain if there are any differences between Stage 1 and 2 and Xplus and X2? This is throwing me for a loop. I can't seem to find any info on this. Thanks!

GIAC has changed their naming of the different tune options a few times. For the Mk6.

Stage 1 = Xplus
Stage 2 = X2

Stage 2 requires at minimum a 2.5" Downpipe, this is tuned for the downpipe, and this is the difference between stage 1 and 2.

I've read mixed results, but will an AWE downpipe on stock tune throw a CEL. I've read no, but some people say eventually it will. I have 10K miles and not ready to get the TD1 code to deny warranty work. I was just going to buy a DP and store it until I was ready, but If I can install on stock software that would be great.

Another question. On your website it doesnt appear the CCB intake will fit on my 2014. It's a CCBA. can you confirm or deny this?

You should have no issues. I'm going to PM you to chat more about this.
