Any performance difference if I were to gap it to 0.028?

IIRC you want the largest gap you can have that doesn't misfire. .028 should be fine though. I think the BKR7EIX come gaped already at .028

****Correction im almost certain the BKR7EIX come 0.032 gaped from factory not .028

Anyone find uni stage 2 TCU tune is a bit too aggressive in city driving ? Low speed it acts up a bit, and rolling a stop or corner and braking before hand it takes a second or two when you let off the brake and go to the gas to actually engage, if you get on it too early it engages hard. Or if you're slowing down and get back on the gas, it takes a second or three slowly raises the rpm then engages ... Is it just me ?

So I got an official response from unitronic about the pop and crackle tune. I asked if we will get it and they said:

"Probably not as this is not a factory feature that can be enabled within the ECU on the MK6 GTI."

BKR7EIX is sufficient.

You shouldn't be re-gapping Iridium plugs.. and BKR7EIX's come gapped to 0.028" last time I installed a set.

It's more complicated on the MK6 GTI ECU, but it's possible. I don't foresee it coming in the near future, though, unfortunately.

And I guess our ecu is locked when flashed with unitronic so we can't get a custom tuner to pop that in.

Hey John, when I'm in D, off the gas, vehicle is slowing down with engine braking, if I get back on the gas the revs raise up say from 1300-1800 and then engages the gear, is this normal ? It's been bugging the crap out of me because when im rolling an intersection to left or right I have to slow down and wait for an opening, when I get back on the gas it takes a second to do that process and then I get going. There a fix for this ?

Uni stage 2 ECU and TCU.

I would need to know more about the scenario in order to best answer your question. If you're confusing the dual clutch gearbox by changing its expected driver behavior, it could result in a delay/hesitation. Feel free to shoot me an email with your full name, VIN, and more details and we can discuss.
