here's the article: http://www.tflcar.com/2016/05/2016-...ed-mk6-tfl-leaderboard-hot-or-not-ep-4-video/
on their dyno they measured 190hp/200tq stock and 202hp/240tq tuned....
even unadapted i'd expect the tune to put out way more power than that....
Yeah surprised by the lack of HP gains. My car feels much faster than stock (not just more torque), even when I have it on the "low" boost stage 1.
Interesting how the MK7 handles much better than the MK6
Not a huge difference...not in non performance pack configuration. I wouldn't trust that used up mk6. Damn suspension bottoms out and it looks like its running non-stock size rubber that can mess with handling characteristics.
My suspension NEVER bottoms out. Read below for performance numbers between mk6 and non pp mk7... chk #161 and 162
That COBB tuning deal doesn't make anywhere near what the new APR stage 1 does.
That's a great point though - the engine probably never fully adapted if they tested it 10 minutes later.
I actually LIKE that the lowest power stage 1 tune is like an actual stage 1 tune lol. I've always hated that for whatever reason every stage 1 tune from the usual VW tuning companies all are much more like a stage 3 ecu tune. No way should a simple stage 1 turn the car into something completely different than it was. +10whp and +30-40tq is a great stage jump to me.
Makes more sense to me than Stage one being +50whp and +100tq or some other madness, and the ln Stage 2 being +5whp and +10tq compared to that lol. To get those number jumps before, you were doing a turbo swap...
The power jumps are good, but where are the normal jumps lol. I wish I could have a mild upgrade like that for when I don't want the big power.
I do wonder how long they waited though before testing.
